The US-backed Syrian Democraic Forces (SDF) have “responded” to alleged attacks of Syrian and Russian forces on SDF positions north of Deir Ezzor city, a hard-core pro-Kurdish/US media outlet, Hawarnews, reported on Monday.
According to the report, the situation remains tense in the area of the Conico gas factroy and the nearby fields of al-Taybeh and al-Isba.
Earlier on Monday, the SDF officially accused Russia of striking its positions near the Conico gas factroy, on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.
The Russian Defense Ministry officially rejected reports that Russian warplanes conducted any strikes on SDF targets and added that the Russian Aerospace Forces attack only terrorists. Russian military spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov added that the Russian military did not register “any engagements between SDF militants and IS terrorists rearward.”
