ANKARA (Reuters) - The U.S. embassy in Turkey denied Turkish media reports that the United States had sent tanks and hundreds of truckloads of weapons into Syria to support the Kurdish YPG militia.

In a statement posted on social media, the embassy said the U.S. has not provided tanks to any groups fighting Islamic State in Syria, and the vast majority of trucks crossing the Iraqi-Syrian border did not contain military equipment or supplies.
