Several Assad regime soldiers were killed when warplanes from a U.S.-led air coalition struck a military position in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor province, the regime-run Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported Monday.
Axar.az informs citing AA.
SANA quoted a Syrian military source as saying that coalition warplanes late Sunday had targeted a military site in the town of Al-Hiri southeast of Deir ez-Zor’s city of Al-Boukamal.
A number of regime personnel were killed and injured in the attack, SANA reported without providing an exact casualty toll.
The news agency went on to note that the attack had occurred three days after regime forces on the ground had registered substantial gains in the area.
SANA accused the coalition of sporadically targeting regime assets in Syria while covertly supporting the Daesh terrorist group.
“Field reports confirm that Washington is providing Daesh with various kinds of support to prevent its collapse [in Syria], thus maintaining its justification for keeping its illegal presence in the country,” SANA reported.
The news agency went on to accuse the U.S. of trying to “steal the economic resources in the eastern region [of Syria] through its mercenaries [and] terrorist groups”.
