U.S. armored vehicles have been deployed along the border of northern Syria and Turkey just days after 30 U.S.-backed Kurdish fighters were killed in a series of airstrikes carried out by 24 Turkish fighter jets.

A large convoy of U.S. armored vehicles were spotted just 200 yards from the Turkish border.

The US-backed Popular Protection Units (YPG), fighting against ISIS, said their positions were hit multiple times.

Dozens of fighters were also wounded in the strikes, according to the officials. There were no U.S. troops among the fighters who were hit.

America’s Freedom Fighters reported that U.S. and Russian troops in the areas of the attacks were warned about an hour before 24 Turkish jets and two Turkish drones bombed locations in northern Iraq and northeast Syria. Senior Russian officials contacted U.S. counterparts to try to get Turkey to back off the strikes, but those pleas were ignored by the Turks, officials said.

US State Department Deputy Spokesperson Mark Toner said, “We are very concerned, deeply concerned that Turkey conducted air strikes earlier today in northern Syria as well as northern Iraq without proper co-ordination either with the United States or the broader global coalition to defeat ISIS.”

One concern is that further clashes between Turkish and Kurdish forces in Syria could potentially undermine the U.S.-led war on the Islamic State group.

A senior Kurdish official, Ilham Ahmad told The Associated Press that American forces began carrying out patrols along the border Thursday along with reconnaissance flights in the area. She said the deployment was in principle temporary, but may become more permanent.

A Kurdish activist in the area, Mustafa Bali, said the deployment is ongoing, adding that it stretches from the Iraqi border to areas past Darbasiyah in the largely Kurdish part of eastern Syria.

“The U.S. role has now become more like a buffer force between us and the Turks on all front lines,” he said. He said U.S. forces will also deploy as a separation force in areas where the Turkish-backed Syrian fighting forces and the Kurdish forces meet.

It is a message of reassurance for the Kurds and almost a “warning message” to the Turks, he said.

What a mess.

Stay tuned.
