On the video materials that were at the disposal of the BulgarianMilitary.com resource, you can see that the Russian military was also at the scene, in connection with which, a number of American media have already announced that Russia is responsible for the incitement Kurds.
A number of sources report that American F-16 fighter jets even flew to the Syrian Harbat Hamo region, which is confirmed by the corresponding videos of local residents, however, the American side does not give any official comments on this matter.
It should be clarified that this is the first skirmish between Kurds and American troops in northern Syria, which, obviously, indicates a clear dissatisfaction with the actions of the American army among the Syrian Kurds, and does not exclude the likelihood of new clashes with the use of weapons.
