Col. John Dorrian, the Baghdad-based spokesman for the U.S. military reports that U.S. troops have come “under fire” and have “returned fire” in and around Mosul as allied forces try to retake the city from ISIS.

“When someone is shooting at you, that is combat,” Dorrian said to Pentagon reporters.

While Dorrian said U.S. troops are operating “very close” to the front lines, he also added they do their best to avoid it, although circumstances can change where exactly the front lines are.

A separate U.S. defense official told Fox News that U.S. troops fighting in Mosul have been wounded in recent fighting, but declined to say how many, or when the incidents occurred.

Fox reports that some of the wounded troops were airlifted by helicopter for treatment.

The official declined to describe the wounds in any detail.

The news comes days after it was reported that U.S. troops were operating closer than ever to the front lines.

ISIS is estimated to have between 1,000 and 3,000 fighters in Mosul.

They are said to be the most hardcore among the terrorist group.

Stay safe over there guys. Get the job done and come back home in one piece.

God Bless.
