WASHINGTON — The Pentagon has provided the Russian military with the general locations of U.S. special operations forces quietly inserted into northern Syria late last year, American defense officials said Thursday.

The United States outlined broadly where the American troops would be operating in war-torn Syria in a “formal request” that the Russians not bomb that region, said Peter Cook, the Pentagon press secretary. So far, the Russians have complied with the request, he said.
