Syria says US airstrike killed several soldiers near Jordan

19 Mai, 2017, 23:26 | Author: Claudine Rigal

Russian Federation and Iran have deployed forces to Syria to back up leader Bashar al-Assad while the U.S. and many of its regional and Western allies have called for the strongman to leave power.

The attack comes at a time when the USA presence in Syria is becoming more visible, mostly in northern parts of the country where American troops are backing Kurdish-led forces fighting Islamic State.

A Syrian government's military source said the United States strike hit "one of our military points" late Thursday, killing several people and causing material damage.

This "flagrant aggression launched by the worldwide coalition exposes the falsity of its allegation about fighting terrorism and undoubtedly demonstrates the reality of the Zionist-American project in the region", the Syrian official said.

In Geneva meanwhile, Bashar al-Ja'afari, the head of the Syrian delegation to the peace talks underway in the Swiss city, told reports there that he discussed the airstrike during a meeting Friday with the U.N. Special Envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura, describing the attack as "state terrorism".

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said on Friday that a U.S. military strike against militia supported by the Syrian government had hit civilians and was unacceptable, Russian news agencies reported.

Moscow is concerned over differences in understanding the need to unite those who indeed fight on the ground and in the air against terrorists of the Islamic State and the former Jabhat al-Nusra, he said.

Coalition warplanes targeted a convoy of Syrian government forces and Iranian-backed militia close to the Iraq border on Thursday.

The claim that Russian Federation was warned and was still unable to stop the convoy will call into question how much influence their commanders have over Assad and Iranian forces in parts of Syria.

"The Syrian Arab Army is fighting terrorism on its territory, and no party has the right to determine the course of its operations", a source told AFP.

"This was despite Russian attempts to dissuade pro-regime movement towards al Tanf, coalition aircraft show of force and warning shots".

The same source says that the raid struck a convoy carrying government troops and allied rebels and that at least four vehicles were destroyed. Syrian television did not give the number of dead or injured.

He said: "We are not increasing our role in the Syrian civil war".
