TWO British special forces soldiers have been seriously injured in an Islamic State (ISIS) attack in Syria.
The soldiers were attacked in Deir al-Zour, the BBC reports, while other media said the incident took place in Al-Shafah, a town near Syria’s border with Iraq. The two soldiers have been airlifted to hospital by a US helicopter. It is believed the attack, which also injured several coalition fighters, took place yesterday morning.
Rudaw news, a Kurdish outlet, reports that the British soldiers were injured in attack on a Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) base in the town of Deir al-Zour.
An SDF official told Rudaw: "Due to a smart missile attack by ISIS, a fighter of the YPG was killed and another wounded, in addition to two British soldiers."
