US-Led Coalition Strikes Syrian Army Positions in Deir ez-Zor Province – State Media

  • US-Led Coalition Strikes Syrian Army Positions in Deir ez-Zor Province – State Media
    by https://www.rt.com/
    US-led coalition aircraft have reportedly bombed Syrian military positions in the Al Bukamal area of Deir ez-Zor province in eastern Syria, state media outlet SANA reports, citing a military source.

    The strike, according to the military source, allegedly targeted a Syrian “military position” in al-Harra, southeast of Al Bukamal. There are dead and wounded following the strike, the source added.

    The strike was “probably” carried out by American drones, a source from among the local pro-government forces told Reuters, adding that the attack allegedly targeted Iraqi factions between Albu Kamal and Tanf, as well as Syrian military positions.

    The Pentagon, however, denied any involvement. “Not a US or Coalition strike,” US Department of Defense spokesman Adrian Rankine-Galloway told Sputnik, about the reported attack.

    The reported strike would not be the first time the US-led coalition targeted the positions of Syrian military and pro-Damascus forces in Deir ez-Zor, where the Western-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) operate.

    The SDF, with the support of the US-led anti-IS coalition, began Operation Roundup on May 1, with a declared goal of driving out remaining jihadists from the Iraq-Syria border region and the middle Euphrates River Valley. To help their allies gain ground, the coalition has conducted 225 strikes with 280 engagements in May. “This demonstrates a 304 percent increase over the 74 strikes conducted in March and a 123 percent increase over the 183 strikes recorded in April,” the Pentagon noted earlier. US-led strikes in the vicinity of Abu Kamal have been carried out daily during June, allegedly targeting IS positions and supply routes.

    Damascus has repeatedly denounced Washington’s actions as a violation of Syrian sovereignty, arguing that the US presence only benefits terrorists and those who want to carve up the country.
