On Friday, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces shelled a group of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers while it was crossing the Euphrates River near Deir Ezzor city, according to reports circulating online.

The shelling allegedly resulted in killing of 9 SAA soldiers. However, no photos or videos from the scene were provided.

Pro-Kurdish media activists are denying reports that the SDF shelled the SAA near the Euphrates.

On September 21, the Russian military announced that it will strike any force that shell government forces or Russian special task forces operating near Deir Ezzor city.

Earlier in September, the SDF and SDF-linked media outlets repeatedly claimed that the US-backed force will not allow government troops to cross the Euphrates and will “liberate” the entire Deir Ezzor province.

SF will update this post if more details appear.
