US Airstrikes Kill 100 Russian and Syrian Fighters, Reports Say

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

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

No uniformed Russian soldiers were killed in the USA -coalition strike on Deir Ezzor, Russia's Defense Ministry said in a statement cited by Interfax on Thursday.

The new aggression by USA troops and allied countries against troops loyal to President, Bashar Al-Assad, comes at a time when Turkey is developing a strong offensive in the Syrian enclave of Afrin and other northern areas against Kurdish-Arab forces.

Syria's foreign ministry sent two messages Thursday to the U.N. secretary general and the president of the U.N. Security Council complaining about what it called a "new aggression that poses a war crime and a crime against humanity".

The draft United Nations resolution, seen by Reuters, also "calls upon all parties to immediately lift the sieges of populated areas, including in Eastern Ghouta, Yarmouk, Foua and Kefraya".

Pentagon officials speaking on condition of anonymity told the media that they believed Russian military contractors operating with the Syrian government forces were among the dead.

The Pentagon boss also dismissed any suggestion that Russian Federation, the Syrian government's most powerful military ally, had any control over the mysterious attacking force. Syrian military airstrikes killed at least 230 people, including civilians, according to the United Kingdom -based monitoring group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

He added, " Arsenal need someone that is going to go in there and upset people". Petit, a former France global said, "Lacazette is under massive pressure".

"These are the worst four days that Eastern Ghouta has ever gone through", said Hamza, a doctor treating patients in the suburb of Arbin. A spokesman for the USA coalition said Russian Federation told the coalition that it was not involved in the attack on the SDF headquarters. "We don't know", reported The Washington Times.

Turkey was reported to have halted flights in recent days because Russian Federation had closed the airspace over the Kurdish stronghold of Afrin.

This time around, the U.S. military said that it was exercising its "inherent right of self-defense" in attacking the forces of a government whose territory American troops are occupying without either its consent or any mandate from the United Nations.

White noted one SDF soldier was wounded, and there were no coalition casualties. "We're not getting engaged in the Syrian civil war".

Turkey launched "Operation Olive Branch" in Afrin three weeks ago, targeting the YPG Kurdish militia in Syria, which Ankara views as a terrorist group.
