BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:20 A.M.) – At approximately 11:30 P.M. (local time), the U.S. Coalition launched an airstrike on a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) artillery team near the Iraqi border.

The U.S. Coalition’s attack targeted the Syrian military’s artillery team inside the small town of Al-Sukkariyeh, which is located just west of the Iraqi crossing and strategic border city of Albukamal.

As a result of the U.S. attack, at least two Syrian Army soldiers were badly wounded and their artillery gun was destroyed.

According to a military source in Damascus, the attack on the Syrian Arab Army’s artillery team was unprovoked and unexpected as neither party had any confrontation prior to the strike.

Furthermore, when asked if the attack could have been carried out by an ISIS drone, the military source denied it was conducted by an unmanned aircraft; however, he did not go into details.

Saturday night’s attack by the U.S. Coalition marks the first time this year that the latter has bombed a Syrian military site inside Syria.

Attacks on Syrian army positions are intolerable. No matter what reason.

Syria not the US is the sovereign of the land.

US believes it’s the law of the land and in fact it is illegal according to US law and international laws for them to even be in Syria. No respect for laws shows the decline and corruption the US has fallen.

Also more proof the US main goal was never to defeat ISIS but to bring down Assad secular government and impose fundamentalist and marxist governments.

US enemy is the SAA. US will kill any SAA near Oilfields or US occupied border bases in their own country. I am surprised they have not attacked the Iraqi border security Army fighting ISIS. It seems SDF is funneling them down to the last two border towns for Iraqis to finish off.

Parece que EE.UU. quiere sacar a los miembros de ISIS hacia Irak, quitando del medio al ejercito Sirio ya que tenía en la mira a los terroristas.
El gobierno Sirio debe hacer la denuncia internacional ante la ONU y el mundo observar el pronunciamiento de este aparato burocrático.

If the attack was carried out by U S Aircraft then it is pathetic. US should concentrate in eliminating Daesh and that was the primary reason why they are squatting in Syria.
