The U.S. led Anti-ISIS Coalition has struck again in eastern Syria; this time, bombing the small, but crowded town of Al-Khan in the Al-Hasakah Governorate after bombing the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers combatting the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) terrorists at the village of ‘Ayyash in the Deir Ezzor countryside.

According to a local monitoring group in the Al-Hasakah Governorate, the U.S. led Anti-ISIS Coalition’s warplanes struck the village of Al-Khan in the Al-Hawl countryside, killing as many as 26 civilians, while also wounded dozens of others in what appears to be a poorly planned bombing campaign in eastern Syria.

The day before they killed 26 civilians in Al-Khan, the U.S. led Anti-ISIS Coalition killed 3 soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army’s 137th Brigade of the 17th Tank Division inside the village of ‘Ayyash in northern Deir Ezzor, marking the first time that the Coalition air forces have bombed the pro-government soldiers.

The U.S. military officials have denied responsibility for the bombing in Deir Ezzor, while also placing blame on the Russian Air Force; however, they stated they will investigate the allegations regarding the Al-Khan bombing that killed 26 civilians.

This is not the first time the U.S. led Coalition has killed civilians in Syria: earlier this year, the U.S. struck several civilian populated areas in the Al-Raqqa Governorate after alleging they were specifically targeting ISIS.

Who is in control of Al-Khan at the moment, that is the important question??

Both Russia and Iran did not so far condemn US led strikes on Syrian army base in Der zor, the Russians said today ” they were conrcerned about the strikes” , the Americans accussed the Russian of being responsible of the airstrikes, no formal rejection of such claims from Moscow so far, so what is wrong here, is game played by the US and Russia agaisnt Damascus, who knows!
