BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:12 A.M.) – Either Russian or Syrian airpower has attacked Kurdish-led forces on the eastern bank of the Euphrates river near the Deir Ezzor city area according to reports from both opposition and Kurdish sources.

The reports say that US-backed troops of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces were attacked by unidentified warplanes – either belonging to the Russian Aerospace Forces or Syrian Arab Air Force – near the al-Sinaa area along the eastern bank of the Euphrates.

The attack is said to have taken place at about 3 A.M. this morning.

No information has yet been released on the aftermath of the reported attack against Kurdish-led forces.

Updates to follow.

“attacked by unidentified warplanes”. So how do they know it was Russian or Syrian airpower? Did they consulte a coffee cup reader? Personal I would not be surprised it been the NATO-crime syndicates to blame it on Russia and/or Syria.

The Israeli-Kurds want their own state? They already got one – Israel. Move them there, and let the Palestinians have the land they occupy in Syria/Iraq.

I have a feeling that it was probably Israel or maybe Turkey?

Turkey? They moved across half Syria and nobody detected them? Must be a h**l of an airplane and pilot. Same counts to Israel. I doubt Jordan will be silent if the IDF crosses their lands.

Hysteria to mark Syrian Army and Russians cruel and side them with IS so the world would say “poor Kurds”.

Not SDF, they are KOF – Kurdish Occupational Forces

The sources continue by staing that: “About a dozen SDF troops were wounded in the attack.” Goodness me! If an attack by the Syrian or Russian air force had such an insignificant impact on the enemy, then they can just a well pack and go home! Such injuries are more akin to a mortar shell rather than an aerial bombing. Unless some makeshift drone converted for such purpose was used of course!
