U.S. airstrike hits pro-regime forces in Syria — Military official

Irune Rengel | 27 May, 2017, 15:54

"We are not increasing our role in the Syrian civil war, but we will defend our troops", Mattis said. It's also not clear how many casualties the USA airstrike caused, though the strike reportedly hit a tank and two earth movers.

A member of the US-backed Syrian rebel forces told Reuters the convoy comprised Syrian and Iranian-backed jihadists and was headed toward the Al-Tanf base when they clashed with some rebel forces.

Aside from the April cruise missile strike, the coalition-backed forces have avoided contact with Assad regime forces.

Rebel officials said earlier this week that hundreds of troops and militiamen were advancing into the sparsely-populated desert region near the Jordan border, in an apparent attempt to halt recent rebel gains against so-called Islamic State (IS). The commander chose to call in an airstrike after warnings were not heeded by the pro-Syrian government force, he added. But we will defend our troops'.

The strike was near a base in An Tanf used by the US-led coalition to train "Vetted Syrian Opposition" to aid the fight against ISIS.

The 67-year-old Frenchman's contract is entering its final weeks and uncertainty about his future has persisted for months.

A 34-mile defensive zone exists around the base, and it is believed these forces strayed inside that. "They were potentially probing to see how close they could get to At Tanf", the official said.

"A convoy going down the road didn't respond to numerous ways for it to be warned off from getting too close to coalition forces in al-Tanf", said one of the officials, adding that British and U.S. commandoes have been training anti-Damascus militants at the base in Homs province.

At the time of the strike, pro-Assad forces "were advancing well inside" the de-escalation zone, the coalition said in a Thursday statement.

"Such actions that were carried out against the Syrian armed forces. this is completely unacceptable - this is a breach of Syrian sovereignty", Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov was quoted as saying by state-run RIA Novosti in Geneva.

The Pentagon believes that Iran is ruled by Pro-government forces in Syria, advancing to the position of the global coalition headed by the USA.

Elsewhere in Syria on May 18, IS attacked several government-held villages in central Syria, capturing at least one of them.

And in June past year, Russian warplanes bombed the outpost, reportedly just one day after British special forces had pulled out.

The U.S. said Russian Federation was told in advance and that warning shots were ignored.
