Following initial reports that at least 80 of the Syrian army had been massacred in Deir Ezzor by US airstrikes, preliminary reports are now suggesting it is at least 100 dead and 100 injured.

The Pentagon Press Release states absolutely nothing on the massacre with a simple quote of “Near Dayr Az Zawr, a strike damaged five ISIL [Daesh] supply routes.”

According to a CENTCOM release however, it claims that the United States had told Russia of its impending airstrike on the area where the Syrian Army was located. The bombardment had only concluded when Russia had told the United States that it was possibly targeting the Syrian Army and not ISIS.

There are also reports that the United States had using jamming devices so that the Syrian Army were not aware of the impending massacre.

Is Syria ever going to protect its soldiers with air defenses or not? Reports are that U.S. attacked 4 times and even went after the ambulances. U.S. is lying. It helped an anti-Assad force – ISIS – this time. It helps all anti-Assad forces and sometimes uses ISIS as a place holder if it wants to eventually put other forces or itself in the area. After using it, it may at times work against it, but the U.S.’s real target is the legitimate Syrian government.

That’s because in both Pearl Harbour & 9/11 USA government knows for sure what’s going to happen, or you still doubt that?. If so, you should turn off the tv…

Now the Americans blame the Russians. For the mass murder. They informed out of excess courtesy , not because they are obliged. All this double talk and deception hints that it was a purposeful massacre. b****y nose for Syria, a source of embarrassment for the Russians , the Americans will have a good night’s sleep

Wrong! Sorry, it doesn’t works as you say! You only need a spotter or a drone or another aircraft doing it if your aircraft hasn’t such system and as all your hardpoints are filled, you can’t put a laser targetting pod. Generally, such need happens when the aircraft has been conceived only for air superiority only AND If you use laser guided bombs! Having a spotter on the ground is more likely to happen when you have special forces or boots around so when they need close air support, they designate the point they want you to blow, thus allowing… Read more »

The US says that it has been tracking that position for a significant amount of time. Then it is simply not possible that they did not know that it was held by Syrian forces.

This is far more than incompetence. It’s like a while back when those U.S. Navy sailors were impounded by Iran, remember that? They were ordered out to a certain spot in the middle of the Persian Gulf in small craft, without enough fuel to get back, told somebody’d come out and gas them up, but that didn’t happen- instead they were left to drift onto the Iranian shore and be impounded, TO DISCREDIT THE PEACE DEAL. Now it’s to discredit Secretary of State Hillary Clinton- these are Trump people, nihilists. You guys may not really get how bad this is,… Read more »

“The bombardment had only concluded when Russia had told the United States that it was possibly targeting the Syrian Army and not ISIS.” seems like russia was not to overly concerned,,i dont trust them anymore,they might have even known about this strike from the way they were relating the message to the US

Well, I just hope for CENTCOM’s karma this was really a mistake.
Well, this area having been taken from Daesh a few days ago, if datas weren’t updated, this is plausible, especially as USAF never striked SAA before.
I wouldn’t be surprised that the pilot being devastated : US pilots even protested that their ROEs were way too strict to efficiently do their job as USAF ain’t allowed to take opportunity targets as most all air-forces are. If you follow what they are posting, they really want to crush daeshbags, qaedans and other scumbags.
