Yesterday, Russia officially denied it had carried out airstrikes on rebel fighters of the New Syrian Army near the al-Tanf border-crossing with Iraq.
A commander of the New Syrian Army said his group had been bombed three days ago, while officials of the U.S. Defence Department were quick to point fingers at Moscow.
Nevertheless, Russia says it was not been operational in the area while others claim it may have been an accidental coalition airstrike on New Syrian Army militants.
Our partners from www.SouthFront.org have the story and more covered:
The New Syrian Army was created and trained in Jordan primarily to combat ISIS; however, the rebel group is not exactly a friend of the Syrian Government nor Russia.
Last month, the New Syrian Army was virtually wiped out by an ISIS suicide bomber although it has since regained some of its strength and maintains control of a few points in southern Syria.
