Two US-led coalition personnel killed by ISIS IED blast in Syria
The attack, which is the first fatal strike on the coalition this year, happened Thursday night at around 4pm ET.
Those wounded were evacuated for further medical treatment.
A coalition statement did not give the names or nationalities of those killed.
It explained: Details pertaining to the incident are being withheld pending further investigation.
The attack happened shortly after Donald Trump vowed to withdraw U.S. Forces from Syria very soon.
He told a gathering of construction workers in Richland, Oh., Well be coming out of Syria, like, very soon.
Let the other people take care of it now.
Very soon. Very soon were coming out.
Were going to have 100% of the caliphate, as they call it – sometimes referred to as land – taking it all back quickly, quickly.
But were going to be coming out of there real soon. Going to get back to our country, where we belong, where we want to be.
State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert appeared to contradict Trump after when asked if she was aware of any planned withdrawal.
She answered: I am not, no. No.
His axed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has argued that the U.S. should remain in Syria to prevent the return of al-Qaeda, and temper the behavior of the countrys president Bashar al-Assad.
