ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — More US troops may be headed to Syria to assist in the fight against ISIS.

A senior defense official, cited in a recent report, says that additional Special Ops forces could be soon deployed to Syria.

If this so-called pilot project shows signs of progress, the Pentagon may consider deploying more units.

Last month the Pentagon announced 50 commandos will be sent to northern Syria to advise forces fighting ISIS.
