US-led coalition aircraft were sent near the northeastern city of Hasaka, Syria to protect coalition ground forces in response to bombing by Syrian jets on August 18, a Pentagon official said on Friday.

Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said the incident was not an intercept and the coalition aircraft reached the area by the time the Syrian government warplanes were leaving.
