Click to see the full-size map

Rumors are circulating online that some unknown aircraft has striken units of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) deployed north of the Syrian city of Deir Ezzor.

According to reports, 6 members of the SDF were wounded as a result of airstrikes on the industrial area near Deir Ezzor city, on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River on Saturday.

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)

    This is inevitable and the US would love to accuse Syrian or Russia of attacking first so that they could justify an attack on the SAA forces! Typical cynical US tactic. This will accelerate and at some stage US aircraft will have to be shot down.

    • Bente Petersen

      could be the US ie a false flag attack !!!! Is just out of the US book ….

      • FlorianGeyer

        Indeed, IF the incident occurred it is very possible that it was a US false flag attack that have many precedents in the history of US aggression.
        The Gulf of Tonkin affair being just one.

        • Bente Petersen

          exactly… more like USA than SAA or Russia !!!!!

      • Nigel Maund

        Totally agree! That’s what I think too! I would not trust the US as far as I could throw the Empire State building!

      • Miguel Redondo

        I would declare it better as “fake news” rather than “false flag attack”. My reasoning is very simple.
        In case of a false flag attack we would have all the mass media reporting it with colour reports , western journalists giving live statements in front of an presumably bombed kurdish ambulance and life interviews with bloodsheded YPG-“freedom warriors”.
        Nothing of all that happens…..

        • 888mladen .

          You’ve got a point. The most likely scenario.

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          They are trying to use the media to facilitate propaganda to lull the masses senses into accepting the idea, as they have been using all this current hype to do that.

        • Bru

          quite insightful !

  • andy l

    The SAA or Russians if it was them can just say they were targeting Isis. Its the SDFs own fault for being in the area

  • Floyd Hazzard

    And who should care? The SDF and all their supporters and their activities in Syria are all illegal under international law. The world should really stand back and take a hard look at America, their NATO allies, the GCC and Israel and their brazen and shameless machinations and support of lawlessness in this theatre that contradicts the laws of the world.

    • Victor

      Kufufufufufufufufuu no one cares anymore about the “law” or slanders like you.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Did really have a serious comment or just a statement of fact, as those in the US,NATO , Israel,GCC Coalition ignore international law besides the only one whom is slandering is you.This is coming from a someone who said they don’t care about law, RFLMAO!

        • Bru

          This Victor just sound another angry PKK troll,
          they just want to steal Syria land.

    • Bru

      exactly!

  • Deo Cass

    Well, if it is true I must say about time. The US proxies of SDF and the US air force itself have already attacked the Syrian army twice with the Syrian government forces refraining from responding. Besides the US invading foreign colonial forces of the so called SDF have declared war on the Syrian government by stating that they will not allow Syrian government troops to reclaim their own territory on the Eastern banks of the Euphrates river.

    • Bru

      very well said!!

    • Leon De Elias

      Syria still have its own borders,internationally recognized..Fuck the Kurds and the terrorist US..I consider the US as illegal Terrorist Mother State in Syria..

  • Antonovs

    SDF needs to get the heck out of there. Them redirecting their troops from Raqqa to Deir Ezzor shows that they have totally different goals than defeating ISIS

  • Lupus

    would be best if SDF captures all of DeZ governorate from ISIS on their side of the river and hand it over to SAA after. Then Kurds can have autonomic region Rojava with respect to Arab tribes and minorities. SAA and SDF must cooperate to liberate Idlibistan and Al Bab/ Azaz region to eliminate Turkish agression and influence.

    • 888mladen .

      Actually they are minority themselves.

      • Lupus

        Not in Rojava

        • Solomon Krupacek

          also; only 40%

          • Lupus

            depends on wich canton.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            of course. but between royava borders only 40%. only very few areas are in syria, where they are above 50%. kurds will be not hold this territory. other nations wont live under kurds. ysou should accept the reality.

          • Lupus

            reality is how u make it and want it. Kurds, Assyriens, Turkmen and Arabs together can govern Rojava with respect for each others culture and religion.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            they dont want. such common state exists. called: S Y R I A

          • Lupus

            I m good with that bro but still believe autonomic Rojava within Syria would be best and SDF and SAA should work together as allies

          • Solomon Krupacek

            autonomic kurds territories can exists. but not coherent, continuous territors. look at map above. 6-7 islands. also the ermans in belgium has divided territory. kurds have no right for such big territory. if i were assad, i would allow in elementary and secondary school local, minority languages.and after war allow bi-tri-multilingual territories.the kurds want only steal. they want oil fields, where are not in majority. this is crime.

          • Brother Ma

            Wont happen.if kurds get power will oppress others just as they have in the past.some of us remember and know history!

    • RamboDave

      There are no Kurds in Deir Ez Zor province. …. ZERO. Here below is a map

    • Simon Gould

      They’d never put their elite troops in a situation where they would be humiliated by Hezbollah – as they surely would

      • Orcbuu

        Yes, correctly :)

      • RamboDave

        Israel already learned that lesson in 2006 in Southern Lebanon.

    • ruca

      So you favor the violation of Syria’s sovereignty? What bizarre logic is behind your thinking?

      • Bru

        PKK logic?

    • Brother Ma

      You are obtuse or a paid zionazi troll!

  • 888mladen .

    Perhaps Assad should allow Turkish air force to carry out undercover strikes on the positions of Zio stooges.

    • Bru

      good idea

  • Deo Cass

    Quote: “According to reports, 6 members of the SDF were wounded as a result of airstrikes.” My God! If an airstrike by the Syrian and Russan air force scause such an insignificant damage to the enemy, then they can just as well pack and go home! The casualty count is more akin to a single mortar strike rather than aerial bombardment, always if the news is true. Unless of course, it is was some makeshift drone converted to carry such mortars and drop them on the enemy like we’ve already seen in ISIS arsenal.

    • bcbingram

      agreed

    • Bru

      well said

  • Jordan Katz

    Personally, I just don’t see any real motive for SAA / RU air power to strike the Kurds at this time. They would be providing the US & Friends the justification to escalate that they’ve been looking for. Que Bono?

    • roger temple

      If this really was an aerial bombardment, look for US friendly fire on the SDF. Yanks make a habit of friendly fire.

  • Manuel Flores Escobar

    Turkish air force…..

  • Samuel Boas

    Accident or no accident, about time they got hit.

  • EmilyEnso

    Looks like the biters have been bit for a change.
    Message loud and clear.
    That this is Syria and not a potential stolen Kurdistan courtesy of the USA and it is Syrian oil – forget it.
    Take your greedy eyes off.
    We need the revenue to repair all the damage your US sponsors and warmongers have inflicted on our country and its suffering peoples.

  • hvaiallverden

    Its called inevitably, every creeping rat on this planet knows this, that apart from the SAA and whom ever the present Syrian Gov. have asked for to assist their fight against an invading force, have all the legality, morality and sanity by their side, and whom ever dont aply to the wishes of the Syrian people and Gov. is an foreigner and an enemy of the Syrians, and to then hide the truth with creating color full names as Syrian DeamonCrautic Forces, is just an ridiculous name game, means jack shit.
    White helmets, huh an British payed propaganda machine, how and where something happens they are soooo surprised it was done by their own home grown scums aka Wahabistic lunatics, sponsored and fueled by your very own gov. and I bet, like the Norwegians/Sweds they support them with all the cash they need as we speak, since they are friends and is from the bonkers Saudis.
    Anyone criticizing them is an Islamaphobe, the ugly truth is, diametrically opposite, they are the enemy of Islam and thereby humanity as whole..
    Nothing else.
    And an asset aka an cheep tool.
    If you dont see it you are an drooling idiot, period.

    Second, the Kurds, whom is right now at the very edge, what to do.
    My only answer is, look at your grand children and children, do you really want them to go to this shit again, an never ending spiral of wars and violence.
    Its all yours.
    Never forget that.

    Like the Rohignians case (Jesus how much bull its already piling up about them, where everybody ignores their history they aren’t strangers, in fact, natives, whom is by history Islamic, thats it), already morphed into an color revolution, sponsored by the same scums whom is behind Syria and Iraq, are probably, or highly lightly, in Myanmar as we speak, to feed the violence to an wider area, and with the help of the west, again to attack China.

    You see, one goes down, another one pops up, like cancer.
    If you dont see that either, you are willfully blind and clue less.
    I recommend sitting down, China or Russia as an third part, and do something, and make it clear.
    That should not be an problem, and ignore the freak show in the western MSM.

    peace

    • bcbingram

      Says the commenter with so much FEAR he won’t use his name or face. I have learned, folks who are terrified do not give accurate information.

    • Shylo Duffy

      You got it you know the score…

  • Aurelian

    Unless assad gets a guarantee that the Russian air defence systems will protect the SAA from air attacks then crossing the river would not be a good idea.

    The U.S is just itching to strike assads forces, i am skeptical that the Russians will directly engage American air power

  • Rob

    American coalition is a terrorist coalition. They finance and arm ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Israel and other global terrorists in the name of democricy, peace and stability like in Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Libya etc right. These brutal terrorists should be stopped now. Otherwise somebodies would be stand against them. War is not some countries priority but America begging for war.

  • SKY

    We will see now when Daesh is gone, what Syria, Iraq, Iran, Turkey and the others that are backed by like Russia etc., will do to the Kurds, I don’t hate Kurds I like them as brave people, but they are proxy for American wars, how now the Kurds will defend themselfs from the states itself where the Kurds are, especially after now their parliament and their councils want to do referendum for independent Kurdistan inside in Syria and Iraq. If they declare independence by their own, that will be very bad, they will be a self-proclaimed state, in such case, we will see new war because Syria says and Iraq too, that will defend and clear all the country by any aggressor or occupation.This will be very perfect opportunity for Turkey to strike them, and they will never find peace in that newly formed state.

    • bcbingram

      I hope you are wrong about ‘Kurds’ never finding peace.

    • Bru

      I used to have sympathy for the Kurds , seeing them as oppressed by the Turks. But this changed when I realised they were the ones who buttered the Armenians to steal their land.
      Worse, seeing how to what extent they steal land from the Syrians , I understand and tend to side with the Turks on the Kurdish question.

  • Divesh Kumar

    You don’t need anyone to attack you when you are in bed with Americans. I am sure it must be uncle Sam’s birds if this happened

  • Carol Davidek-Waller

    Or it’s another US sponsored false flag attack meant to slow down the inexorable advance of the SAA. Since the goal of the U.S. sponsored SDF is partition, the Syrians would be within their rights to attack them. However that wouldn’t stop US propaganda machine from msking a meal of it.

  • Moussa Saab

    They have the same uniforms as IS, what do you expect?

  • Moussa Saab

    If the reports are true, than it is more likely the U.S struck the kurds with another air strike.

  • Shylo Duffy

    What does the US always say when they strike down a Russian or Syria plane? They claim they thought it was ISIS who was attacking. Well what’s good for the geese is good for the gander my Momma use to tell me.I’m just surprised that no one has put them under the same sanctions as they put others through.

    • bcbingram

      Because today America controls the worlds economies.

    • Brother Ma

      How when us is so powerful?

  • Shylo Duffy

    I just want to say that reading these comments have filled me with joy knowing that most people are awake and understand it’s our own Western Govts that causes all the hell in our world today.It honestly makes me happy to see we are aware of the hell they’ve put the world through. GOD bless us all.

    • bcbingram

      agreed ..EXCEPT Muslims been killing each other ‘enmasse’ since before Europeans had Governments.

      • Ronald

        Christians have been doing the same , etc, etc . Sanity has no religion , but truth in communication seems to be the path to it .

      • goingbrokes

        It would be a good idea to introduce a comparison – i.e. “compared to X muslims have been…” Otherwise you just end up with a provocative statement with not much substance.

  • Walter White

    its not the kurds fault its the Americans again, they have no business in Syria they are after the oil for their interests they don’t give two shits about the kurds. How can the Americans tell the SAA to keep out of the Euphrates river? its their own country lol

    • bcbingram

      I am an American , and I care about the Kurds.

      • RamboDave

        The Kurds are far far far away from their homeland, with their big adventure down to Deir Ez Zor. Take a look at this map below. There are absolutely no Kurds living in Deir Ez Zor province.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        try to care about indians

        • Bru

          I agree with you, Solomon, on this , well said!

      • Tarciso Ribeiro

        you should care about yourself ,your country,your government full of criminals.

      • Brother Ma

        Like solomon said ,try to care a little more about native indians,black your fellow europeans and syrians at large before the kurds.

  • RamboDave

    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.

    • bcbingram

      Hope your right

    • Bru

      Do you have more info on the removing of the most extremist zionists from NSC?

    • Brother Ma

      Kushner is still there as is his daughter,both israel firsters.

  • Barba_Papa

    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?

    • Attrition47

      I think you might have something there.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      because they are not saint :)

  • Tom Tom

    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.

    http://debka.com/article/26231/Syrian-Hizballah-troops-cross-Euphrates-to-east

    • Solomon Krupacek

      ok, debka is joke site

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      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.

  • Karen

    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.

  • Bru

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

  • Leon De Elias

    bomb the yankee funded terrorists..

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

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      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.
