Young man killed in US-Syrian skirmish, further escalation stopped ‘only’ due to Russian mediation – Russian MOD

A 22-year-old Syrian was killed while another man was injured during an altercation between US troops and locals in northern Syria, the Russian military said. The showdown happened after a US convoy diverged from its patrol route.

Editor’s note: This article has been corrected to reflect the young man killed was 22, not 14 as initially reported.

The incident took place near the village of Khirbet Amo, east of the town of Qamishli on Wednesday. Clashes broke out after the American patrol veered off its expected route and was stopped at a Syrian Army checkpoint, the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers for this young man's family and friends; and that being said, can anyone, please, actually logically explain to me what the hell we are doing, militarily, in Syria, other than potentially annoying Russia so much with this military misadventure, that Moscow will see no other way of dealing with it, than to conduct a savage military campaign against American military resources here>?!?

Didn't think so.
