BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The Kremlin condemned the U.S. Coalition’s attack on the Syrian forces near the Al-Tanf Border-Crossing, yesterday, which killed at least six military personnel.
“Any military actions leading to the aggravation of the situation in Syria definitely affect the political process. Especially if such actions are committed against the Syrian armed forces…” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov stated on Friday.
“This is totally unacceptable; it is a violation of Syrian sovereignty. Of course, it does not help the political process,” Gatilove added.
The U.S. Coalition’s attack on the Syrian Armed Forces, yesterday, marked the first time during this six year conflict that their warplanes deliberately targeted government units.
