BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:40 P.M.) – The Russian Aerospace Forces have bombed US-backed, Kurdish-led forces in eastern Deir Ezzor Governorate according to official Kurdish social media sources.
As stated by some reports, Russian airstrikes targeted Kurdish-led forces positions in the area of the Conoco Gas Field to the southeast of Deir Ezzor city, however other reports are saying that the alleged Russian bombing took place to the north of the provincial capital.
Kurdish sources are also reporting causalities although no specific numbers have yet been clarified.
The more official reports also talk about “heavy shelling,” but it hard to tell whether this is a reference to Syrian Army artillery bombardment or still a reference to the alleged Russian airstrikes.
Updates to follow.
