TWO British special forces soldiers have been seriously injured in an ISIS attack in Syria.

They were hit by a missile in the war-ravaged country, the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) confirmed.

US helicopters airlifted the soldiers to an American field hospital after an anti-tank guided missile was launched towards the advancing Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

At least one SDF fighter is believed to have been killed and several others wounded.

There are a small number of British soldiers still in ISIS-held territory but details of the operation have been kept under guards.

It is believed the injured troops could be SAS servicemen.

A Ministry of Defence spokesman said: "We do not comment on special forces."

A spokesman for Syrian Democratic Forces told Iraqi Kurdistan media group Rudaw: "Due to a smart missile attack by ISIS, a fighter of the YPG was killed and another wounded, in addition to two British soldiers."

Last March, Sergeant Matt Tonroe was killed by a buried bomb while battling ISIS in Syria.

The SAS soldier had been embedded with US Special Forces in Manbij near the Turkish border when the booby-trap bomb exploded.

He was the first casualty from UK Armed Forces in Syria.
