BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:10 P.M.) – The U.S. Coalition carried out a new airstrike in the Euphrates River Valley region of Deir Ezzor, today, targeting an area near the front-lines of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

According to a military source in Damascus, the U.S. Coalition bombed the Halbiyah-Zalbiyah Bridge that links the territories controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces and Syrian Arab Army in western Deir Ezzor.

The source said that the Syrian Arab Army was recently reconstructing this bridge and was nearly finished until it was bombed by the U.S. Coalition.

The U.S. Coalition has not issued any statement about this bombing.

Al-Masdar’s source in Damascus said that the Syrian Arab Army believes the reason for the bombing was to prevent them from being able to cross the Euphrates and enter the SDF’s territory.

But, but the Americans are not bombing bridges that allow Turks to invade N. Syria and slaughter Kurds?

Kurds will not be able to handle the Turkish army on their own. They have been let down badly by the hasty decision of Trump trusting Erdog. A combined force of Kurds & SAA will mean a force multiplier against the Turki Army. It is time the Kurds & SA come together and put their differences away. Hope the Kurds will now realize that Amrikans were never meant to there forever holding an umbrella for them from the rains & hot sun. They have to take care of themselves.

I dont want the kurds to survive just like the kurds did not allow most of the Christians in the areas they now inhabit to survive. I hope the Turks wipe them out. Small loss for syria to lose that land.. But the SAA can occupy the best parts near the North west if the turks move in.

US military commanders making clear that even when they have a traitor as commander, they themselves will as long as possible defend SDF.

The SAA pose no threat to the Kurds as they are in talks with Damascus and rejoining the Syrian forces. Funny how the americans are not bombing to the north where the turks are amassing who do pose a massive threat to the Kurds. So how are the americans helping the Kurds by bombing this bridge? If the Turks attack they now have no southern escape route if they need to retreat.

They were hoping the Syrians would use the s-300 to provide an excuse to start their long coveted WW3

Starting war with USA right now when they are pulling out of Syria is NOT a smart decision…
