The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and a militia source said United States troops were among the dead, according to Reuters, which reported that four were killed.

Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency, citing unnamed local sources, said a number of American soldiers were injured and that the USA military evacuated troops by helicopter.

The U.S. military says a number of service members were killed Wednesday in an explosion while conducting a routine patrol in Syria - the first instance of U.S. casualties since President Donald Trump announced his intention to withdraw troops from the country last month.

The U.S. -backed, Kurdish-led Manbij Military Council militia that controls the town said there was preliminary information that people had been injured in Wednesday's attack.

In a tweet, the USA military said: "We are still gathering information and will share additional details at a later time".

Four US servicemen were killed and three more wounded, the Reuters news agency reported a US official as saying.

Members of the US-backed military coalition in Syria, as well as local militia members and civilians, were said to be among the victims in an explosion in Manbij, Syria, on January 16. Others said only two had been killed. Inherent Resolve is the USA -lead Coalition fighting ISIS in Syria.

A US defense official told Fox News last Friday that the USA -led military coalition in Syria started the process of removing troops from the region, but wouldn't confirm further details for security purposes.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a group based in the United Kingdom that has been reporting on the crisis in Syria for years, reported that two USA soldiers had also been killed in the attack. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and the USA envoy to the coalition fighting the Islamic State, Brett McGurk, resigned in response to the decision.

Photographs on a local Kurdish news site, which Reuters could not verify, showed several bodies lying on the ground with people gathered around them, damage to a building and vehicles, and blood on a wall. "An explosion in Manbij's busy market [street], initial reports of casualties". It is located near areas held by Russian-backed Syrian government forces and anti-Assad fighters backed by Turkey.

It was unclear whether the attack might influence Trump's decision to give more time for the us withdrawal, a conflict he has exhausted of and described as "sand and death".
