SDF Says Syrian Warplane Strikes Target Near US-backed Forces "South of AL-Tabaqa"

Sputnik/ Dmitriy Vinogradov

An official media wing of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have accused the Syrian Air Force of striking a target near SDF positions in some area “south of al-Tabqa”.

The media wing released a statement “that at 9 pm on Friday 22/9-2017 Syrian aircraft bombed areas close to the presence of our forces in the south of AL-Tabaqa and no casualties among the ranks of the fighter.

However, it is not clear why the Syrian Arab Air force should strike some target south of al-Tabqah city while the main clashes are now taking place near the town of Maadan northwest of Deir Ezzor city and near Khsham village and Saqr Island east of Deir Ezzor city.

The statement followed reports that the SDF attacked Syrian government troops crossing the Euphrates River near Deir Ezzor. 9 Syrian soldiers were allegedly killed as a result of the incident. However, no official confirmation has appeared so far and pro-SDF sources have rejected these claims.

In any case, the SDF runs a large-scale media campaign, backed by the mainstream media, in order to blame Syrian government forces for their will to clear the eastern bank of the Euphrates from ISIS and to justify own will to seize oil fields located in the area.

    Anyway it is high time to send the PKK back to Turkey where the Turks will give them a nice welcome.

  • *yawn* Soon the “last hospital” and “last orphanage” in Tabqa will be bombed. Then it will be time for the olde gas attack canard.

    • Jordan Katz

      LOL!

  • Shylo Duffy

    How dare they complain it’s not their Country nor is it the USs they’ve no right to cry about what the SAA do in their own Country. What a nerve..God Bless the Syrian people. Time to send a clear message to The squarters.

  • MD Ranix

    the illegitimate u.s. coalition should ask themselves …. they want to lie to the world that they are victims, devils indeed – such fakeness

  • qveenz

    Good, very good, hope that SAA will increase the scale and the lethalitty.

  • “No casualties” Those words just confirm what we all know by now: It is fake. SDF, you can go to hell.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Its an yet another ” Unknown unknown ” :)

  • Peter Moy

    Stop your bellyaching you SDF puppet morons! People get bombed during a war morons. The next step is now for Uncle Stupid to order thousands of adult diapers for these crybabies.

    • FlorianGeyer

      All the US made adult diapers are being exported to Israel at the moment I understand :)

    Well it may be an indication (SDF obviously having shown its hand with the release of water from the dam to impede SSA from crossing (sabotaging national sovereign interest)) along with the national interest in its infrastructure and the part that life sustaining water is as important as oil for the population the dam must be returned to Syrian control.

    I think the Russian coalition is up to that task and to restate that the mission in Syria contains Russian interest of heading off jihadist proxies from the Caucasus’s on the southern border of the Russian Federation. The Syrian operation is just as important as the Chechen war and lessons learned.

    • Bru

      well said about stealing for the so called bargaining

    • Biswajit

      Its time for SAA to take control tabqa dam on Euphratus.

    • RamboDave

      Keep in mind how the Serbs had their historic homeland province of Kosovo stolen out from under them by NATO.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Apparently a convoy with SDF and US forces came under ISIS ambush there are no confirmations yet on it.

        The UN is just a land theft device the US uses as they were in a large part responsible for arming aiding and abetting the rebels in Rwanada that ended up killing hundreds of thousands in an ethnic cleansing. Democratically elected presidents were killed for US dictators as there is no difference in Somalia, they appointed an American as the President of the country.

      • Augsta “Augsta”

        Yeah 4 % Serbs in all of Kosovo 92% Albanians the rest gypsies get your facts straight know your historybbefore you write something illyrians ( Albanians ) were the first peoples in the Balkan area study of history and learn it well.

        • Solomon Krupacek

          in kososvo were not 92% albanians (rats od europe). these rats of europe came from albania in yugoslavia, were refugees. these rats of europe fleed before enver hodza. rats of europe back in albania! 80% of rats of europe migrate in west europe. why should have such horde own state???

          • Augsta “Augsta”

            You still don’t know your history do you check the history out and give me a solid reply otherwise go talk to somebody else. I can tell you’re a rat Jew also.

  • Cheryl Brandon

    KABOOM/KABOOM/KABBOM! SDF is an enemy combatant group who are guilty of 1.ethnic Cleansing x 2. 2. Inviting enemies of Syria to come into Syria without permission from the elected government and 3. Murder of Syrian civilians and soldiers! They are behaving like enemies not as people who have lived peaceably in Northern Syria; Have any Syrian soldier murdered SDF.

  • dutchnational

    If the report is correct, one can only hope the US will stand by its word to arm the YPG as necessary.

    One truckload of manpads will learn the RuAF to stay away from the SDF areas.

    Two truckloads will see to it that Turkey also stays away from the SDF reas.

    Three to four truckloads will bring peace and quiet to the region.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      Manpads are inefecive against russian plans. too high altitude, you little rat!
      but! there are some russian weapons, which can sweeten the everyday life of your kurdish terrorists.

    • Valery Grigoryev

      One should not tease a bear. Unexpected consequences may be. Mr. Saakashvily once tryed…

      Kurds want the US to “stand by its word ” but alas , their word , is only good for the “sale” .

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Terrorists will be expelled as everyday this progresses the PKK becomes exposed as fake even the Arab member didn’t even want to be part of it. Threaten people who starve is a US tactic and also employed by their proxies and not the first time this has been done. This will be a short war as the Turks are not preparing for Idlib as you would think, as the Turks are all near Kurdish controlled areas. Don’t think anyone can trust him since he is a loose cannon like Trump but more calculating and deceptive, as they now the snake when they see it. Trump is a metaphor of the US govt and not so much the man himself but truth is both are blundering buffoons.

      Many Africans will never forget how the Dutch and Belgium participated in the massacre of civilians in Rwanda and how they aided and assisted the US in arms smuggling to the rebels. They repeated these crimes before and even in the former Yugoslavia so they are no strangers of being imperialist lackeys.

    • Justin

      Kurds committed genocide against Christian Armenians!
      U support these people just like Israel who ALSO commit genocide against Palestinians!

      You support ISIS, HTS and SDF!
      You always have!

      Piece of shit!

      Kurds are fucked!!!!!
      Iran, Hezbollah, Turkey, Syria, Iraq and RUSSIA
      Their airforces, ground forces and Air defence forces will be too much for the Kurds and US / Israeli airforce to handle!

      US will risk at its own peril to support the Kurds by the air as they run a gauntlet of opposing aircraft and air defence systems! All the while, a few hundred thousand Anti-kurdish state ground forces mow over these back stabbing rats!

      Rats just like u!

  • Lorca Lime

    it is basically a proof the “World’s greatest nation” is nothing but a coward rat when the Syrian Army is determined and free from beteryers

  • RamboDave

    The American people are very tired of this endless war. And I think President Trump is too. And his opposition to these endless wars is what got him elected, in part.

    The problem is that the American people are not aware of this low intensity conflict.

    There needs to be a major incident to happen in Syria to make Americans aware that Russia and the Syrian people are willing to escalate this conflict, to fight endlessly to protect their country’s assets.

    There needs to be an ultimatum from Russia and it’s Syrian coalition to the Kurds to withdraw from the Syrian oil fields immediately or face attack. This will make the headlines. The ultimatum then needs to be backed up with action. Yes there will be blood spilled. But, if not now , when ?

    This will begin the debate within the US. Do Americans really want endless war and direct confrontation with a Super power, so that the Kurds can keep their stolen oil ? The answer will be no.

  • Valery Grigoryev

    ‘Near’ is near, not on their positions. If it’s the truth – it was a message, not a strike.

  • DJ Double D

    ISIS today conducted a successful attack via ambush against SDF on Deir Ezzor – Suwar highway – 19 killed. It looks as if the money the Americans promised them is not coming faster enough to their liking.

  • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

    This is funny how they just released the video of the shooting down of the Syrian Jet but when they released another about prowess of US air force bombing in Syria two thirds of it was the US bombing Syrian positions. That video was pulled from their site fairly quickly when people caught this out, and it received a major edit job removing any evidence of their actions, and their support of it the illegal actions.

    • John Whitehot

      I’ve looked carefully at that video and I’m not convinced they actually shot down a SU-22.
      Of course, there is footage of a SU-22 flying, but that means nothing.

      What I think about it I’d keep for myself, but don’t forget that at about the same time or a little later, there were the announcements of two A-10 and one undisclosed US aircraft lost at Nellis, with one pilot lost as well.

      Also, the attacking fighters weren’t USAF as you state, but US Navy.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Call them all US air force even though they were navy pilots.
        Have to agree there are things not adding up, the 2 pilots crashed, the report was given in Sept.

        • John Whitehot

          what can i say.

          I have an idea or two about the episode, in these cases you have to connect the dots a bit.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            The problem with the A-10c those have been crashing for decades, but that’s what it is. Seems low in hearing is the reported deaths of special forces from any country as they are listed as a paratrooper or soldier who died in operations in Iraq-Syria. There are others who die in mysterious roll overs etc., too many questions left when you here about their training.

  • Langaniso Mhlobo

    Time to deploy Erdogan gangs in SDF areas to observe devil against demons fight.

  • It’s their country and they don’t need America’s permission to bomb terrorists!

  • Rob Centros

    Assad is attacking more kitten sanctuaries? When will the madness stop?!
