reports coming in of another US attack
BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:40 A.M.) – According to preliminary reports from Deir Ezzor, the U.S. Coalition has allegedly bombed the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) near the town of Al-Salihiyah in the northern part of the province.
No further information has been released.
As many as 215 Russian citizens may have been killed earlier this week by the Coalition and Syrian Democratic Forces in Deir Ezzor, according to information shared on Russian social media.
The U.S.-led Coalition against Islamic State said on Thursday that it responded to an “unprovoked attack” on a well-established SDF headquarters by forces aligned with the Syrian regime.
Military officials said Coalition aircraft including F-22A Raptors, MQ-9B Reapers, F-15E Strike Eagles, AC-130 gunships, U.S. Army Apache helicopters and U.S. Marine artillery ground forces engaged the pro-regime fighters.
Both the Syrian Army and U.S. Coalition have yet to comment on these rumors.
Al-Salihiyah is a frontline town that separates the Syrian Army and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in northern Deir Ezzor.
In January, the U.S. Coalition bombed the pro-government Forces in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor; this attack resulted in the death of many tribesmen and military personnel.
More than 200 Russians may have been killed in Coalition strikes against ‘pro-regime’ forces in Syria
