Two opposition fighters with the Free Syrian Army were killed Thursday in Syria's northwestern when the YPG/PKK terror group targeted their vehicle with a U.S.-made anti-tank missile, said a security source.

YPG/PKK terrorists fired the U.S.-made TOW missile from Syria’s northwestern Tal Rifaat city, according to the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.

YPG is the Syrian branch of the PKK terrorist network which has waged a terror campaign against Turkey for more than 30 years and killing thousands of people including women and children.

The U.S. has provided arms support to the terrorist group in Syria under the disguise of the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces.

The U.S. arms support for the terrorist group included 12,000 Kalashnikov automatic rifles, 6,000 machine guns, 3,500 heavy machine guns, 3,000 U.S.-made RPG-7s, and 1,000 U.S. made AT-4 or Russian made SPG-9 anti-tank munitions.
