DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4: 10 P.M.) – The US-coalition has conducted, yesterday evening, another airstrike against forces allied with the Syrian government in the northeastern countryside of Homs.
“The Coalition destroyed additional pro-regime forces that advanced inside the well-established de-conflication zone in southern Syria on June 6,” a statement released by the Pentagon read.
The General Command of the Syrian Army and Armed Forces denounced the attack which killed a number of troops and caused material damage.
“This aggression confirms the support provided by these ‘powers’ for terror groups as the Syrian Army and allies continue to overrun ISIS on a daily basis,” the General Command said in an official statement released last night.
According to pro-rebel media, the airstrikes killed Mohammed Hussieni, a senior field commander for the Afghan militia fighting ISIS alongside the Syrian Army.
Last week, the coalition planes dropped leaflets warning the Syrian forces and allies from getting closer to Al-Tanf border crossing.
