Russia, Syria fume over U.S. strike on Syrian troops

19 May 2017, 10:37 | Terri Saunders

The attack was the first such close confrontation between USA forces and fighters backing President Bashar al-Assad.

CBS News National Security Correspondent David Martin reported the us struck Syrian regime vehicles that violated a deconfliction zone set up around the al-Tanf an army base.

Russian Federation tried multiple times to contact the Syrian forces, the official said.

As the Wall Street Journal's Yaroslav Trofimov notes, Thursday's strike is significant not because the USA has once again struck Assad's forces, but because it did so in defense of Syrian rebels.

Tensions in the area have escalated as Syrian government forces and US -backed Syrian forces continue to advance closer to each other.

Coalition forces have operated in the al Tanf area for many months training and advising vetted partner forces who are fighting ISIS.

Thursday's strike was the coalition's first on pro-Assad forces in the battlefield.

The official statement said that Russian Federation had made "apparent" attempts to "dissuade Syrian pro-regime movement south toward At Tanf", but that those efforts were "unsuccessful".

"We notified the coalition that we were being attacked by the Syrian army and Iranians in this point and the coalition came and destroyed the advancing convoy", the Pentagon-backed rebel group called the Maghawir al Thwra told Reuters.

The development comes only a few days after United States jets killed almost two dozen civilians in an attack on an area in Syria's eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr near the border with Iraq.

USA officials said the vehicles were slowly advancing within a 30-mile ground and air exclusion zone that the United States has established around Tanf.

In April, Daesh terrorists attempted to take the United States base near At Tanf in which three US-backed Syrian rebels were killed.

Russian Federation condemned on May 19 strikes by the USA -led coalition against Syrian forces as "unacceptable", state media reported, after the bombing of pro-government troops.

The coalition has described Thursday's strike as a defensive action that does not change the USA policy of focusing military efforts on defeating ISIS.

Pro-Assad Shia militias backed by Iran have historically operated in that area.

Two American aircraft were dispatched to buzz the convoy, and warning shots were fired.
