REPORTS: 5 U.S. Soldiers Killed in Manbij, Syria Bombing

According to the local military council, a blast occurred near a patrol of the international coalition in the city. Eyewitnesses in Manbij say an explosion took place near a cafe where the leaders of the council and guests from a delegation, "whose identity has not yet been established", had gathered.

"Six civilians were killed and 19 others wounded as a result of an explosion in the center of the city of Manbij, while a US military patrol was passing", Al Jazeera said.

The death toll was later revised up to 9 killed.

ISIS has reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack.

The city of Manbij in the northern province of Aleppo has switched hands three times since the civil war began in 2011.

With US troops withdrawing from the country and Turkish forces concentrating at the Syrian border, the US-backed Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG), which was in control of the area at the end of December, invited Syrian government forces to the city.
