A senior U.S. official visited Kurdish-held areas of northern Syria at the weekend to assess progress in the campaign against Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a U.S. official said, and a Syrian Kurdish official said he landed at a Kurdish-held airport in the area.

“We can confirm that Special Presidential Envoy Brett McGurk completed a two day visit to northern Syria this weekend to assess progress in the campaign to degrade and destroy ISIS,” the U.S. official said.

The Syrian Kurdish official, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said McGurk landed by helicopter at the Syrian Kurdish-controlled air base of Rmeilan, adding that it was being used for logistical flights by U.S. military helicopters.
