ISIS attack: Two British special forces soldiers ‘seriously injured’

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."
