US forces invade Syria

American troops have crossed the border into Syria, according to Syrian border guards.

Days ago officals in Washington said anonymously that their forces had entered Syria - two border guards are said to have been killed.

It breaches an important red line, and sets a very dangerous precedent. So much for 'foreign fighters' crossing the Syrian-Iraq border: isn't this exactly the same situation?

An official complaint's been lodged with the American Embassy in Damascus.

Did they realy invade Syria or just followd retreating fighters?.

This is kind of a sensational headline you shouldn't use "invade" for temporary incursions...

thanks for your work
