Syrian war: US scrambles jets to Hassakeh
US aircraft have been scrambled fighter
to the Syrian town of Hasaka to protect the US Special Forces
on the ground from the Syrian government air attacks,
the US military says.
The Pentagon said the Syrian aircraft
were leaving with the arrival of aircraft.
People say in the northeastern Syrian
city government warplanes have hit Kurdish areas there during the past two days.
Thousands are reported to have fled their homes.
Hasaka is essentially
under the control of Kurdish militias, and YPG.
