A joint American-Kurdish patrol in Syria was targeted in a car bombing on Monday, according to The New York Times.

A suicide bomber in a vehicle attacked the convoy, according to the newspaper, killing at least five Kurdish fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces. 

No Americans were injured, it added. 


The Kurdish forces are the Pentagon's main partner on the ground in battling ISIS. The terror group has not claimed responsibility for the attack. 

Monday's attack came five days after an ISIS led explosion in Syria killed 15 people, including four Americans. It was the deadliest attack on Americans since U.S. forces were deployed in the country in 2015.
