No visual or photo confirmation of the incident has been provided as well as the SDF media wing has not commented on the issue. However, some supporters of the both sides have already suggested that the alleged airstrikes were conducted by Russian or Syrian warplanes.

The US-led coalition, the Syrian Defense Ministry and the Russian Defense Ministry have not officially commented on these reports also.

While the fact that the SDF suffered from some airsrikes is still unconfirmed, the circulating reports have already fueld tensions between the SDF and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA). (MORE ABOUT HERE)

    It is easy to see that even if the attack did occur, it was done by either the Kurds themselves or a US Coalition member state (or even Israel), with a very very very small bomb, for the purpose of trying to get the US to retaliate against the SAA.
    President Trump wants to stay out of this. All of the “Israel first” crowd has just recently been removed from Trump’s NSC.

    I wonder why they’re so quickly to point their finger to the RuAF or SyAF when the USAF has a long and proud history of striking their own forces and/or allies. I mean, there are constantly blue on blue incidents in Raqqa, why should it now be any different?

      I think you might have something there.

    The day the MiG-29s arrived in Syria, British Maj. Gen. Rupert Jones, Deputy Commander in Chief of the US-led Coalition in Syria, threatened to strike any units of the SAA if they crossed the Euphrates River.

      ok, debka is joke site

      You know when push comes to shove with the US, they just sit down. The MIG-29smt are very solid multirole jets , the US has the F18 E and F, Aussies are just F series, Canada which doesn’t operate in Syria has F 18-8 or H most Coalition forces are F-16 and F-15 variants.

      True typical Debka article always with their paranoia and endings as Iran wanting them destroyed. That would be true if they were talking about their ambitions being destroyed as this would be apt saying. Like how they start by making Iran the bogeyman right from the start and just consistently spin it to fit their view.Once upon a time it was Syria as their enemy it seems they always need an enemy to justify their paranoid fears.

    This seems to be Israel’s Netanyahu’s ideal plan in protecting their occupation of Syria’s Golan Heights oil/gas on Israel’s side. Genie energy co-owner Dick Cheney and other US/Israeli Zionists. An article last night US time of Hailly saying they want Assad out now. Netanyahu was in New York on the 14th and supposedly spoke to Trump. Will this be a war now against Syria strictly for Israel? I hope not because I was so happy for the Syrians with so many territories liberated finally and them starting to go back to their homes and rebuild their beautiful country and their love for their president Assad. No more wars for Israel!

    • Bru

      The war against Syria has always been for Israel, right from the beginning!

  • George King

    Despite this assertion “Syrian Defense Ministry and the Russian Defense Ministry have not officially commented on these reports ” Assad’s response “Whether it’s the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), or Daesh [ISIS] or any illegitimate foreign force in the country… we will fight and work against them so our land is freed completely from any aggressor,” will stand as we are seeing.

    I hope the Syrians can kick the US-SDF-Israeli invaders out of their country.

    USA gains Kurdistan, loses California.
    If this is acceptable then Mexico should have military bases inside California.

      Sounds about right they would be protecting their ethnic citizens in the region since this is allowed under UN and international laws.

  • Hassadnah Abraham

    SAA, Russia, Hisbullah have all the right under internal law to attach ISIS, Al Nusla, SADf, FSS,US, Al Sham…al Shit and so on. All of these are terrorist creating havoc and invasion against Syrian. Evidence, clear as shining sun light that all of these were creaqted, funded and colaborate with USA and Israrel to commit war crime in Iraq and Syria.
    By now Russia should start to shoot US jet out of Syrian sky. USA illegal invasion must be stopped.
