2nd ISIS suicide bombing in days hits US convoy


A suicide bombing claimed by ISIS has targeted a US-Kurdish convoy in northern Syria, the second such attack in days, the Independent reported. 

Two US soldiers were injured in Monday's attack, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, and five other people were killed. There was no immediate confirmation of that report. 


A spokesperson for the US-led coalition in Syria confirmed that a joint US and Kurdish convoy was "involved" in a car bomb attack, adding that there were no US casualties. 


Syrian state news agency SANA said the suicide bombing hit a Syrian Kurdish checkpoint near the town of Shaddadeh, in the Hasakeh province. 


Isis claimed the latest attack in a statement carried by its Amaq news agency.
