A US-led coalition aircraft has bombed one of Syrian military positions, local media reported citing a source in the military.

Pentagon denied the coalition’s involvement in the reported airstrike.

Syrian SANA news agency reported, citing a military source that one of US-led coalition aircraft had made an airstrike on the positions of the Syrian troops in al-Harra settlement, which is southeast of Al Bukamal, killing several servicemen and injuring others.

The Syrian city of Al Bukamal is apart of Deir ez-Zor Governorate and is situated near the border with Iraq.

US Department of Defense spokesman Adrian Rankine-Galloway told Sputnik later that neither Washington nor the US-led coalition was behind a reported attack on the Syrian troops.

“Not a US or Coalition strike,” Rankine-Galloway said Sunday speaking about the reported attack.

Previous month, Iran’s Fars news agency cited sources as saying that a new US military base was being set up in the Deir ez-Zor province.

The base, which, according to reports is located in the Badiyeh al-Sha’afa area, was to be equipped with “advanced military tools and systems”.
The US-led coalition has been making airstrikes against what it calls Daesh* targets in Syria since 2014. The coalition’s mission was approved neither by Damascus nor the UN.
Currently, about 2,000 US troops are deployed in Syria.

“The coalition’s mission was approved neither by Damascus nor the UN.”
=> Due to the fact that ISIS did attacks on many countries, approval is not so necessary.
I don’t think that Douma would have given more budget to Putin in order to triple or quadruple the Syrian operation budget and compensate CJTFOIR inaction…
