BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:50 P.M.) – A U.S. warplane mistakenly struck a group from the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the northern countryside of Al-Raqqa on Friday, the Islamic State’s (ISIL) official media wing reported yesterday.

Al-‘Amaq News Agency alleges a U.S. warplane struck a base belonging to the Syrian Democratic Forces near the northern Al-Raqqa town of Tal Al-Samn, killing and wounding all of the fighters inside of the installation.

The Islamic State’s official statement regarding the U.S.’ accidental airstrike on the SDF’s base.

This allegation by the Islamic State’s media wing came just hours after the U.S. struck the Syrian government forces inside the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, killing six soldiers and 9 civilians, including 4 children.

The Syrian Democratic Forces are currently on the offensive in the Al-Raqqa Governorate, targeting the Islamic State’s last bastions from three different flanks.

You really know very few about aerial operations, especially about close air support. Russians also did at least 2 oooooppss strikes against SAA since they’re in Syria.
At $21k the cheapest guided bomb (and much too powerful to be used for CAS), you really think that only PGMs are used? Iron bombs are still more trendy than many think 😉 Blue-on-blue occurred daily during WW2, Korea or Vietnam wars. IRST has greatly diminished this
