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.
