"A military officer at the Pentagon said the operation was carried out at about 3 a.m. against a "foreign fighter safehouse" in the desert about 15 miles from the Syrian border. He said the U.S. troops came under hostile fire and called in close-air support.
The officer declined to say if anyone was killed. Lt. Col. Dan Williams, a U.S. military spokesman, said the military was investigating. "
