How do they know if it was the U.S. that bombed them?

because US owns the skies and, unless it was artillery, which it's hard to believe wasn't distinguished, one has to presume it's coalition air support. like Gulf War I it's ironically tragic how many casualties are self-inflicted friendly fire or due to accidents.

If it was the Turks, that will complicate things some.

BBC is fairly reliable, although you could hardly call them a Coalition News Service
whatever the facts, some American troops (a convoy suggests troops travelling in military vehicles) have likely come under attack and there are perhaps some casualties.
this is simply news, and is posted as such.
that it is bad news i find regrettable, but hope i won't be attacked for posting it...i have no hidden agenda in posting this (except the usual conservative VRWC agenda), even if the source is the BBC.
again, this is simply news, and is posted as such.
apologies for disclaimer...we live in trying times.
