USA aircraft attempted to buzz the regime, but when the convoy did not turn around, they conducted a strike against some of the vehicles.

Syrian and Iranian-backed militiamen were reportedly moving towards the Tanf base, which is used by rebel fighters and Western special forces personnel.

Syria's ally Russia said on Friday that the strike had hit civilians and was unacceptable, Russian news agencies reported.

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.

Last month, US-led allied forces and Syrian rebels thwarted a significant Daesh attack on the base.

The U.S. -led coalition warplanes on Thursday struck one of the Assad regime's military sites in southern Syria near the border with Jordan.

Military Times quotes officials describing the targeted militia as "pro-regime" but "not directly associated with the Syrian government". Special forces are training Syrian militias at the base, Martin reported.

It is unclear yet whether the strikes have killed any Syrian soldiers or pro-government militia fighters as there has been no official comment from Damascus so far.

A militia aligned with the Syrian government was bombed by US forces in the southern part of that country according to a Pentagon official.

The Syrian Observatory said most of the eight people killed in the strikes appeared to be "non-Syrian".

Syrian activists said the strike destroyed vehicles and left casualties.

In the end, USA fighters were forced to engage the Syrian force by launching airstrikes against the convoy.

Later, Secretary of Defence Jim Mattis stressed that United States is not getting more involved in Syria's civil war.

The airstrikes were considered to be carried out in "self-defense" given the militias' proximity to a base used by elite United States and coalition troops.

"The Syrian army will not be prevented by any force on earth from continuing its duty in fighting anyone that tries to occupy Syria", the SCMM said.
