Media: US-led Coalition Airstrikes Mistakenly Kill 300 Kurdish Fighters En Eastern Syria

Donate

300 Kurdish fighters have been reportedly killed by US-led coalition airstrikes in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor, the Iranian news angecy FARS NEWS reported citing the Turkish news paper Daily Sabah on February 12 (source):

The US-led coalition fighter jets bombed wrongly friendly positions and destroyed a main position of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Southeastern Deir Ezzur, killing a sum of 300 Kurds, a Turkish media outlet reported on Monday.

The Turkish-language Daily Sabah reported that the warplanes pounded mistakenly a main positon of the YPG, killing a sum of 300 Kurds.

The Daily further said that wrong peculiarities provided by the field sources were the cause behind the US careless air raid on the YPG.

In the meantime, the Arabic-language al-Manar TV also confirmed that the coalition’s warplanes bombed mistakenly the Kurdish militants’ positions Northeast of the town of al-Souseh Southeast of Deir Ezzur.

Sources said last week that 17 civilians were killed in the US warplanes’ heavy bombardment near the village of al-Sha’afah in Eastern Deir Ezzur.

The sources in Southeastern Deir Ezzur had also reported on Wednesday that a number of civilians were killed or wounded in the US-led collation airstrikes.

The sources said that the US fighter jets conducted heavy bombardment on the village of al-Bahara in Eastern Deir Ezzur, killing three civilians and wounding several more.

Field reports said that some of the injured are in critical condition.

However, the provided number of “300” killed Kurdish fighters is likely untrue as the “300 Russian mercenaries”, which had been killed by US airstrikes in the province of Deir Ezzor, according to “Twitter sources”. The article on the isse has been already deleted from the Daily Sabah website. However, it still can be found via Google.

Media: US-led Coalition Airstrikes Mistakenly Kill 300 Kurdish Fighters En Eastern Syria

Reports about the 300 killed Kurdish fighters, 300 Russian private military contractors allegedly died from US airstrikes, thousands of killed “terrorists” including “Daesh” members by the Turkish Armed Forces in Afrin and mysterious chemical attacks conducted by “the Assad regime” every time when the Syrian Army is gaining ground somewhere across Syria are clear example of the ongoing media standoff in Syria. Different sides of the conflict use false reports and propaganda to push own agenda in this war.

    USA makes “mistakes” not mistakes. It’s a myth that Americans make mistakes. It’s just that ISIS is their boy.

    • Wegan

      Since the Kurdistan card is no longer viable, it’s time to fall to plan F. Nothing seems to work for the US.

      • Merijn

        Nope because everyone knows their stupid tricks through & through by now. They are all laughing their ass off…… Hi Ho Silver… on a F*cking Lame Horse…… Hey Cowboy try something New….. something Refreshing…… and their ZioNazi-Think-Tank is producing CRAP! I thought them ZioNazis were so Smart…… at least that is what they think of themselves……

        Nothing works for US?
        US has utterly destroyed Syria set it into below 3rd world standards for decades to come, so weakened its military that it dare not take on Isrsel, US increased its control of Midwest lands. EMPIRE EXPANDED FROM IRAQ, and a huge chunk of Dyria. Yup nothing works for US.
        MILLIONS LESS PF ARABS WITH MPRE TO YET DIE. CONTROL OF ROCHEST PIL FIELDS IN IRAW AND SYRIA ALONG WITH MINERALS AND TRSDE ROUTES OVG AGGHANISTSN.
        Nothing works out for US.
        They displaced millions of arabs, reducing them into low yowd beggers and used them to kill each other off by religious fanaticism Sounds like somebody is Losing something and it ain’t the US.

    • James Leonard

      It could have been a mistake. Remember, macho America has a long history of not checking anything out before they take action.

    • NeoLeo

      They do make mistakes, there was a joke common to both sides of the line in Normandy back in 1944.: ‘When the Germans bomb, the Allies take cover. When the British bomb, the Axis take cover. When the Americans bomb, everyone takes cover!’

  • Jim Prendergast

    One hopes that Syria can develop a well defended air-base at Dier Ezzor to pacify the region.

      It is gonna happen soon.

    Sure it was a mistake.How dumb do they think we are? The only people I believe is the Syrian Govt.My 1st thought was of some type of understanding between the Turks and the Yanks…
    Everyone understands that both play the game and usually they do so together.

    @southfront
    Please don’t put the header as if it’s true.

    • zman

      That’s why the header says: Media: US-led blah blah blah… this story is primarily about the news article itself. It’s FARS that should learn to vet their stories…especially when quoting rags like Daily Sabah.

  • Casemiro

    This is just low class Turkish propaganda from Sabah, the mouthpiece of AKP.

    • L’Obelisk Jewellers

      There is no lower then USA.traitores ,to terminate with unnessesary AKP ,when they need to apease TURKEY !

  • Feudalism Victory

    Bs just piles up. Turkey really needs that wedge between the us and the kurds

  • Störtebembel

    Who belives what Daily Sabah writes?
    It is not worth to be read.

    • Icarus Tanović

      Maybe more than half than that number. Maybe 90 or such…

  • Vauxhall Astra

    shit happens

    • FlorianGeyer

      And America is full of shit :)

  • Tommy Jensen

    Everybody can make that trick. Just see me:

    BREAKING BREAKING BREAKING
    “More than 34 US Marines were killed and 2 US Apache helicopters destroyed in an secret missile attack by Turkey forces on an ISIS/YPG base near Manjib. US deny it happened and deny anybody died”.

    All of you guys would be running with open mouth telling everybody about it. Its that easy man.

    • klove and light

      right on dude

    • Serious

      It’s not the first time that USA target SDF “accidentally”.

      And, I noticed that Turkey knows about propagenda media war. When they launched their operation in north Syria, they take exactly the same steps as Americans and israelis do when they want to attack another country.

      Maybe, Assad and Putin must learn something about it instead of being polite and being bullied. XD.

  • FlorianGeyer

    Another report yesterday did nit give numbers BUT it stated that the dead were US backed Arab Tribal Fighters.

    They could well be the ISIS tribal fighters who defected to the US / Kurds when the oil wells defended by these ISIS Arabs changed sides.

    Perhaps its in the US interests to degrade her new found Arab friends as they are arguing about the Kurds stealing their homes. :)

    • as

      I think Turkey idea were the same which is to thin the Kurdish ranks in the SDF so as to make the arabian ranks more relevant in it with the end goal of friendly SDF that ready to make concession to Turkey.

    • zman

      Being able to figure out what the US military is doing is a formidable task. They are capable of anything…disinfo being the least(albeit most used)of their tools. It could be revenge…maybe they heard they were going to defect…maybe they didn’t brush their teeth. Who knows?

      • Merijn

        Finally the US threw some bombs on some ISIS aligned Radicals…. applause……

      • Henk Poell

        Well you can listen what they (the US military) says, or take clues from their acts… It looks as if the USA just wants Syria to be in eternal chaos, with Israel being the only party that profits from every tank destroyed and every Syrian getting killed. That theory just about explains all their actions, and I must say they are very efficient – lots of Syrians are dead for a very low price.

  • Terence Silvestre Jr.

    So Karma does exist and sometimes it comes sooner than we imagine many.
    And in that special case it seems to be 300 percent, at the rate of 3 dirty Kurds for every fallen Syrian hero.
    What a coincidence or Karma, in the end the honorable Sirius army did not have to shoot a single bullet to avenge the honor of their fallen.

  • Ishyrion Av

    This is happening when even US doesn’t know anymore where are the kurds and where are the isis…

  • r0b1n

    Heh, bravoooo idiots.

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    Terrorist killing terrorist, this could not be better for Syrians and others in the region.
    This will solve a lot of problems for the SAA when they move into North Eastern Syria to liberate it from the terrorist who declared independence to form a terrorist base/state.

  • Clyde Weathers

    No, nothing/nobody was ‘mistakenly bombed’ as ALL targets were deliberately targeted on orders from Deep State – Pax Judaica (i$rael). Same thing in Iraq, Libya, etc.

  • Manuel Flores Escobar

    Well in fact US protect the remnants of ISIS there to justify his presence and the US bases built there!…even sometimes makes “mistakes” by “friendyfire”…

  • NobodysaysBOO

    wonder how many U S citizens and paid workers (wet work) have been killed ,captured or wounded inside Syria are they coming home for medical or just left in the fields?

  • Hide Behind

    And back from missions, after a clean hot shower, a meal, few beers and mced drinks, the American and Euro polots, officersand gentlemen all, will gather in Air conditioned debriefing room to watch movies of attack.
    That announcing of a SNAFU, f up in plain english, by somebody unknown led them to blow the hell it of friendlies, may case a few choice cud words, not any, from airmen.
    After all it was not they who d’s up. They flew the mission professonaly and did a damn fine job at destroying someboby unknowns taret.
    At least it was not all Amercans.
    The was Amercans are not known to the unknown unseen somebody that sends body in flag raped coffin back home.
    The briefer praise pilots effeciecy, and promises they will have beer Intel from now on.
    Pilots leave, guilt purged from mind, payday next week that is ore than a Kurds yearly, two yearly wages than what was paid y same payastrr to those they blow in whereever.
    Back home we lift a beer t son pool faced punk in a military uniform and say, “Thank you for your service”. HEY BARKEEP ANOTHER BEER AD ON DO OUR OLDIER.

  • Rob

    The US build up is continue in Eastern Syria. Its look like US wants heavy attack on Eastern Syria. Putin could bring an effective air defence missile systems along with enough army strength to counter US terrorism threat.

  • velociraptor

    Repeat 30x and the kurdish problem solved.

  • Sinbad2

    It’s very common for American pilots, it’s considered shameful for them not to drop their bombs, so even if they can’t find the target, they bomb anyway.
    Also, and I think this is a big factor, all American pilots are given amphetamines, to increase alertness.
    Watch Breaking Bad if you don’t know what amphetamines do to the human mind.

    • madmike1968

      So what drugs messed you up?

  • Leon De Elias
    • Jc Plancarte

      wrong. you need to replace those swastikas with stars of david.

      • Bobby Twoshoes

        They’re pretty much interchangeable really, zionism is a fascist ideology after all.

        • Wahid Algiers

          Yes, sure. But the Swastika has absolutely nothing to do with fascism. Fascism ie is what the zionists dis and are doing. Nationalsocialism is what the US/UK destroyed in order of the World-Jews as one of the best political systems for peoples. And the Swastika is Nationalsocialism. So the stars of David would be correct.

        Wouldn’t make any difference. Both are the occult signs with nearly the same meaning.

  • dutchnational

    Media disinformation is rampant.

    • Rodger

      Maybe we can bet in the ISIS casino how many they really killed!

  • François

    Well done. Kurds will soon turn against the US and possibly seek alliance with Damascus

    • Wahid Algiers

      The eastern syrian Kurds are too stupid. They now believe in USrael.

  • Bulgarian God

    It’s a lie! USA killed 300 Assad/Russian terrorists and bandits from the so called “Wagner group”! Oh yeaah ! :)

    • Vitex

      Fuckwit

    • alejoeisabel

      Zionist opinion from a trol.

      • Bulgarian God

    RUSSIA conduct much more air strike to support SAA than USA.
    HAVE YOU EVER HEARD RUSSIAN AIRSTRIKE MISTAKENLY BOMB THEIR ALLY ?

    • L’Obelisk Jewellers

      NEVER A MISTAKE SHOULD BE FORGIVEN ,HENSE ,ITS NOT MISTAKES ,ITS A WAY OUT ,FOR COWARDS LIKE THE USA!

  • Superfly

    US is very good at killing its “allies”. Same thing happens in Iraq and Afghanistan regularly.

    • Icarus Tanović

      They kinda hit their beloved Saudi brainwashed Wahabies.

  • gustavo

    Hey Kurdish (USA-puppets) did you ear that….. “MISTAKENLY”. The country (USA) with the highest intelligent gathering in the World, the country which can see the licence plate of any car of the World since the space, or through their drons…………making mistakes. Only you are able to believe this.

  • Milly Vanilly

    WOW…I would love to see an ACTUAL chart of the target hits made…..REAL ENEMY vs friendly allies/civilians . I’m sure that the Pentagram…Pentagon would NOT ALLOW such a chart to exist in daylight.
    The Pentagon/MSM gives the impression that these pilots are blindfolded & drunk , but most likely, don’t even KNOW what they are unloading on & are required NOT to ask, just to execute orders., just given voice commands from ‘SOMEONE’ with no visual verification on friend or foe.
    HOW many ‘YEARS’ have they been pulling this off ? How many YEARS has the U.S. been ILLEGALLY operating in Syria with NO consequences of ANY kind even spoken of seriously.

  • bvgp

    The YPG are mostly women and are not rabid about Independence.
