USA airstrikes in Deir Ezzor kills several Syrian troops

Syrian regime may attack Kurdish-led forces again in Deir al-Zor: SDF

After 20 to 30 artillery and tank rounds landed within about 500 yards of the SDF headquarters, the SDF, supported by the USA -led coalition, targeted the aggressors with a combination of air and artillery strikes, she said.

The US-led coalition said Thursday it killed at least 100 pro-regime fighters to fend off an attack on its allies in eastern Syria, in one its deadliest confrontations yet with forces backing Damascus.

Recently, a funeral was held at the town of Al-Suqaylabiyah for ten of the ISIS Hunters soldiers killed in the United States airstrikes - many of them were Christians. It also said it was aware only of 25 Syrian militia members having been wounded in the United States strikes.

Islamic State fighters may indeed be on the run - for which the poor beleaguered people of Syria are grateful - but the fighting over valuable territory and oil rights lingers on.

No U.S. military members were injured in the clash.

Russia's Defense Ministry also issued a statement condemning the United States attack, saying it proved the USA isn't interested in fighting ISIS, but rather in trying to seize control of Syria's economic assets through military means. "ISIL is still there, and our mission is still to defeat ISIL", Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said Thursday. Other officials said the USA also used Air Force AC-130 gunships and Army AH-64 Apache attack helicopters to strike the pro-government fighters.

"You can't ask Russian Federation to deconflict something they don't control", he said.

More than 13.1 million Syrians are in need of humanitarian aid, including 6.1 million who have been displaced within the country during the almost seven-year war.

On Wednesday, the top US commander in Syria and Iraq, Lt. Gen. Paul Funk, visited Manbij, the Syrian city on the western side of the Euphrates that has been occupied by the YPG and its US Special Forces handlers. "If a ceasefire is not reached and if there is no response", she added, "we can not imagine the scale of the humanitarian disaster that Eastern Ghouta will witness". The visit came just one day after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan demanded that the American forces withdraw from Manbij, vowing that the Turkish military would extend its offensive into the city. The bombing occurred in the Middle Euphrates Valley in the eastern province of Deir al-Zour.

Around 20 to 30 rounds from artillery and tanks landed within 500 meters of the Syrian Democratic Forces headquarters before the coalition returned fire with a combination of artillery fire and air strikes. Once again they are churning out propaganda to prepare for a military escalation that has the potential of triggering a direct military confrontation between the world's two major nuclear powers, the USA and Russian Federation.
