BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:25 P.M.) – The U.S. Coalition targeted a Syrian military convoy near the Tanf border-crossing, yesterday, after the Damascus-led group allegedly moved too close to their positions in southeast Homs.

According to a military source in Damascus, the primary force in that convoy was a Syrian ‘Alawi group known as “Saraya Al-‘Areen.”
