BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 P.M.) – A fist fight broke out between the U.S. and Russian armed forces in the Al-Hasakah Governorate countryside on Christmas, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported.

According to the SOHR report, the fist fight broke out in the town of Tal Tamr on December 25th after a U.S. military contingent attempted to collect information from the residents in the area.

The SOHR report said the residents accused the U.S. soldiers of betrayal because of their withdrawal and treated them harshly.

The Russian Armed Forces then arrived at the scene and a fist fight broke out between some soldiers on both sides.

No one was reportedly hurt as the incident did not involve weapons.

If true, this would be the first time during the Syrian conflict that U.S. and Russian forces have engaged in physical hostilities with one another.

It should be pointed out that the Russian Ministry of Defense have since denied this claim, calling the SOHR report a ‘hoax’.

A fist fight makes no sense in these circumstances. Military units get involved in fights in pubs if from the same country or from another country.

Exactly. This claim is lame. The source needs to make a living so any info that is sensational regardless of accuracy and truth is reported.

Given the source I’d say it’s a 50 percent chance this is true. I tend to be generous though so likely less.

You’re generous! I tend to rate SOHR with a 80% BS ratio.

Use some logic. Does anyone in Tel Tamr have a phone? Of course they do and since this incident purportedly happened in a public place, the lack of footage, combined with SOHR’s extremely patchy history mean that unless evidence emerges, this story should be treated as a joke.

I posted a link here from Russian media that refute this story – moderators here deleted it.
Its a lie.
