Early on June 16, a series of airstrikes hit positions of US-backed Maghaweir al-Thowra (MaT) in the southeastern Syrian area of al-Tanf, where the US-led coalition maintains a garrison.

A US military official told BBC journalist Nafiseh Kohnavard that the airstrikes were carried out by warplanes from the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) in response an attack with a roadside bomb that resulted in Russian military casualties. The unnamed official said that Russia blamed MaT for the attack. The US-led coalition was alerted ahead of the airstrikes.

MaT shared photos showing the aftermath of the Russian airstrikes on Twitter. The group claimed that the airstrikes resulted in some material losses only.

Around 200 US troops and 300 MaT are usually present in al-Tanf garrison, which was supposedly established to counter ISIS.

The US-led coalition maintains a 55-kilometer no-fly zone around the garrison. Despite this, VKS warplanes conduct reconnaissance sorties over the area on a regular basis.

Between March and May, Syrian government troops around al-Tanf came under attack on several occasions. While some of the attacks were attributed to ISIS, which is known to be present within the 55-kilometer zone, others were attributed to the MaT.

MaT recent activities were not limited to the 55-kilometer zone and its surroundings. Over the past year, MaT built relations with an armed faction in the southeastern Syrian governorate of al-Suwayda. The faction, which was known as the Counter Terrorism Force, was neutralized by pro-government forces earlier this month. The faction’s militants fell into an ambush while attempting to flee towards al-Tanf garrison. Its leader was killed in the ambush.

Aside from its destabilizing activities, MaT is allegedly involved in the trafficking of arms, tobacco products and even drugs between Syria, Jordan and Iraq.

The Russian airstrikes on al-Tanf appear to be more of a warning to the US-led coalition and its proxy, who continue to use the area as a forward base for sabotage. Unrest around the area could soon developed to a confrontation.

Oy!

Russians are not Slavs anymore! Most of them are Asians or mixed! World capital of Slavs is in Poland! Ten years ago Poland has overtaken Russia as the biggest slavic country in the World – 40 millions of ethnic Slavs – tall, blond and blue eyes ;) Meanwhile in Russia number of pure, ethnic Slavs went down to about 20 millions…

Poland and surrounding slavic countries from Baltic to Adriatic sea created an land without borders of happy and prosperous people. Hopefully Ukraine will join us soon. Not too late for Russians to change its mind and instead of aggression help us to build Pan Slavic future…

Pollacks are hardly SLAVS, but dumber than a rock.

These Zionist roaches are killing Russian in Kievan-Rus and average Russian is fed up and angry at the deceit and evil of Jews who have a eternal hatred of Slavs and Orthodox. As a a factual article in Russian media said, “Russians Muslims and Orthodox are now real blood brothers who are fighting in the same trenches”. So Russian public anger at the Jews will lead to a closer alliance with Syria, Iran and the Shia who are very close to the Orthodox in religious outlook and practices. The Zionists should not strut too much in arrogance and their comeuppance is coming is spades. God Bless Russia and Dr. Assad.

Very sensitive censorship.. Being asked what deal/ agreement was forged between RF & US in Syrian territory?

Good way to test and listen for how the US sends out a warning to the terrorist murderers to trace and detect communications systems being used against the government of Syria and their Russian assistance.

Seems there are a lot of balls shown today. First, the US violated the no fly zone earlier. Then the Russians directly hit Al Tanf for the first time(to my knowledge).

Yes I think they have flown over/ near it a few times but never shooting or bombing. SAA haven’t advanced since the US put in the 55 km / 30 mile zone years back. The Yanks were going to pull out when Trump was ordering all troops out of Syria but ended up staying as their secret work there is unfinished.

Why the fuck would you alert them? Fucking dumbass Russia.

John Wallace

So the Yanks wouldn’t fire back via their airbase in Jordan. To avert an all out confrontation. They have been alerting each other for years to their operations when in close contact too each other . When Syria / Russia was going from Nth to North East on one side and the SDF on the other all along the Euphrates down to the oil fields fighting ISIS. I think they had a bit of a skirmish at some dam in the Nth and a bit near the oil fields but they were talking to each other all the time too avoid a major escalation.

But then the US alerted their proxy funded terrorists and they escaped death.

“The US-led coalition was alerted ahead of the airstrikes.” Russian leadership never learns. – Those terrorists are killing or trying to kill Russian soldiers and RU military gives them a heads up before bombing them. No wonder they feel emboldened to attack Russians, Russians are harmless. Russia should have completely devastated this terrorist group, killed a few dozen of them at least for attacking their soldiers!

Are the Russians so bloody stupid to warn the zio terrorist US forces about the attack? Of course they immediately warned their terrorist allies…which is why no one was killed and they then humiliated the Russians by boasting that only material damage was done
