BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:45 P.M.) – The commander of the U.S.-backed Jaysh Al-Maghawir forces stated on Monday that the U.S. Coalition did not attack the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops in eastern Homs last night.
The Jaysh Al-Maghawir commander, Mohannad Al-Talaa, said that the U.S. Coalition did not hit the Syrian Army troops, as they were targeting the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) forces in the Badiya Al-Sham region.
The rebel commander claimed that the U.S. Coalition attack was far away from the Syrian Arab Army’s front-lines in the Al-Sukhnah region.
This report by the rebel commander contrasts the Syrian Ministry of Defense’s claim that the U.S. Coalition had fired at least 15 missiles towards their positions in Al-Sukhnah.
While no casualties were reported by the Syrian Army, the U.S. Coalition did claim that they managed to kill a wanted Daesh commander in the Badiya Al-Sham.
