Four US military forces deployed to Syria have sustained injuries in a militant attack, according to a new report.

The incident took place in northern Syria on June 9, when militants who were believed to be part of the Daesh (ISIL) Takfiri group attacked US forces with an anti-tank rocket, the CNN reported Tuesday citing US military officials.

The report noted that the injuries were mostly shrapnel wounds and the troops are believed to have returned to their duty.

The Pentagon is not likely to publicly address about the report as these incidents usually involve US Special Forces and the military does not discuss their whereabouts or mission for security reason, the CNN noted.
