Russian jets bombed US-backed forces in several small villages in northern Syria after they mistakenly thought Islamic State forces were in the area, a top US general said Wednesday.

On Tuesday, “we had some Russian aircraft and regime aircraft bomb some villages that I believe they thought were held by ISIS, yet … actually on the ground were some of our Syrian Arab Coalition forces,” Army Lieutenant General Stephen Townsend told reporters, noting that there were “some” casualties.
