US-led Coalition Aircraft Carry Out Strikes On Syrian Government Forces Simultaneously With ISIS Attacks – Reports

Donate

UPDATE: The Russian state-run media citing a Russian military source says that no strikes had targeted positions of pro-government forces.

US-led coalition aircraft carried out strikes on Syrian pro-government government forces in the Homs-Deir Ezzor desert area last night, the Syrian state-run media and the Hezbollah media wing in Syria reported.

According to reports, the strikes targeted pro-government forces positions near al-Bukamal, al-Mayadin and the T2 pumping station.

The Syrian state-run media emphasized that the strikes had taken place amid the continued attacks by ISIS on government positions near the desert area.

Captain Bill Urban, a spokesman for US Central Command, denied any knowledge about these strikes, according to Reuters.

“We have no operational reporting of a US-led coalition strike against pro-Syrian regime targets or forces,” Captain Urban said.

    This is wilful & deliberate targeting of the SAA or US pilots are incompetent – everytime they do this ISIS conveniently advances on SAA positions – clear co ordination at work

    • wwinsti

      How is an American pilot incompetent flying over Homs? Is that not west of the Euphrates?

      • AJ

        I was being sarcastic with the incompetent remark!

      • You can call me Al

        A US carrier fleet head to Syria and end up in Singapore !!!!

    • christianblood

      The only way to stop this is to shoot down those planes that are attacking the SAA and its allies!
      Common sense tells us that a bully will not leave you alone until you give them a bloody nose!

    • Ray Douglas

      No surprises there. After all the yanks bombed their own forces in Iraq and Vietnam.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Yes, one blue on blue incident alone in Vietnam killed circa 250 Mericans :)

  • Joe

    So why doesn’t Syrian forces retaliate with SAMs as they are attacking them ?
    Too afraid most likely. How can East Euphrates not covered by Syrian SAM is unbelievable as that are should be considered occupied ares.

    • wwinsti

      Do they have enough SAM systems for all of Syria? Even the jalopies (s75s etc)?

      • Dr. Pro Liv

        Don’t you think that area where SAA has been attacked so many times by US is not considered as high risque area?!
        Where the hell should they have AA defenses if not there?!

        • wwinsti

          Ahhhh, and with a single question you have unlocked the Anglo-zionist strategy. Israel will keep striking near government centers and airports in order to pin down as many air defenses as possible. If too many AD systems get in theatre, they start going after them directly. The unofficial understanding was that the US would do most of it’s airstrikes east of the Euphrates, if the US is responsible, then that tacit agreement has been violated. Otherwise the Israelis are expanding their targeting opportunities. The Russian denial, that a strike from the US *violates realty* points to the Zionist regime.

          • Dr. Pro Liv

            I ” have unlocked the Anglo-zionist strategy”??!?
            And it was just simple logical question
            I have no way to see if the SAA air defenses are too stretched out.
            But this will be only repeated if they do not do something about it..

            “, if the US is responsible, then that tacit agreement has been violated”
            They know that and that’s why deny doing it….

            “The Russian denial, that a strike from the US *violates realty* points to the Zionist regime.”
            Huh?!
            This is beyond and above my English…

    • 35InfantryRegiment

      Stealthy Raptor and Lightning II have neutered all SAM’s. lol. Back to the rooskie drawing board.

      • Alan Foo

        If that is the case why Israel still fired their missiles from Lebanon and S200 was still fired at those planes?

        • 35InfantryRegiment

          Why is your mother a street walker?

  • MADE MAKER

    ARE THESE THE SAME ISIS WHO WERE ALLOWED TO WITHDRAW ATTACKING SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH AMERICAN TERRORIST

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      what u think?

    • Rob

      US, UK, France, KSA and Israel should not supposed to be there in Syria. They have breached the Sovereignty of Syria. They are not only illegally there but also using their proxies to occupy oil and gas rich land from Syria and destroy the rest of Syria. Before ISIS and Al-Qaeda have transported the Stolen oil and gas from Syria to Israel and US but that has stopped now.

      Thanks to Russian aerospace forces that they have destroyed all US and UK logestic facilities. Now this will be too expensive for US, UK, France and Israel to transport stolen Syrian oil and gas from ISIS, SDF, YPG and PESHMARGA areas because these areas are surrounded by anti US, UK, France and anti Israeli migransts. LOL.

      • Siegfried

        Before ISIS and Al-Qaeda have transported the Stolen oil and gas from Syria to Israel and US but that has stopped now.”
        Are you so sure?.. They can carry the stolen oil to IRAK to their US-terminals ans send it to the Gulf thru US-controlled pipelines
        And the Russian Tupolevs DON’T come anymore to f*ck them

        • Amar Bouzwar

          nope. the irakis won´t allow that to happen. the US has more enemies in Irak than anywhere else.

  • James

    The Russian Government is denying it according to Al-Masdar News. Still, what has the US got to lose? Apparently nothing according to the last few times.

  • ███████████████

    We’ve known since the start of the Syrian Civil Proxy War that the US (along with our Zionist and Saudi savage partners) have supported ISIS both covertly and overtly. Anyone that still believes otherwise, despite the evidence, is a very special kind of stupid.

    • Dr. Pro Liv

      “despite the evidence, is a very special kind of stupid.”

        Plus, unfortunately my Dad (UK)

        • Dr. Pro Liv

          Your dad is just average Britt so I don’t see anything unusual or tragic in that.
          We do not live in ideal world it seams.

            So he is maybe intellectual in everything but in politics it seams.

            I do not even know what that means…no do not tell me.

        • Sinbad2

          A lot of people simply cannot accept that their country are the bad guys.

          • You can call me Al

            Yes I agree, but I think it that + continuous brainwashing – without seeing any other side of the discussion.

  • The Farney Fontenoy

    Sadly I reckon Syria can expect more of this once the Daraa offensive kicks off.

  • Rex drabble

    As much as I wouldnt put it past the USIS to do this.I have a feeling its false news.

  • Rob

    The terrorists Trump, Jim Mattis, Benjamin and Avigdor have done this air strike in frustration. I have mentioned before that now these terrorist states US and Israel both are failed and will be dismantled.

    Their terrorist gangs Israel, ISIS, SDF, YPG, PESHMARGA all have exposed and will be dismantled soon in the whole world.

  • Rob

    The US, UK and French law is not applicable to the countries of Middle East.

    Except Israeli migrants and Kurds the Middle East all states have one culture, one language and one religion but still US, UK and France have divided them in several states because a great united Arab will be a great problem for US, UK and France to handle them.

  • Rob

    US, UK, France and Israel have invaded Middle East for oil and gas. They think that they will steal this oil and gas and other minerals from Middle East countries and will sell to other countries to make cash. I don’t see this is possible. Second that time has gone that US, UK and France divide countries. Now this is time of US, UK and France to be divided.

    • 35InfantryRegiment

  • Rob

    America is becoming day by day irrelevant, I mean moving out of the world game. This is good sign for the whole world. Nobody trust Washington anymore.

  • Dr. Pro Liv

    In the next report they say that this report is UNCONFIRMED report !

    This is FAKE NEWS!

  • Ma_Laoshi

    The Empire may have problems of its own, but this kind of incrementalism, the slow-boiling of the frog, they still pull off pretty well. These regular attacks are the new normal. I don’t always agree with Paul Craig Roberts, but there was much truth in it when he wrote “He who hesitates is lost, and Russia hesitated”.

    • Ray Douglas

      I think the Russian reticence is due to the approaching World Cup tournament in Russia. The yanks and the jews are trying to provoke them into some action as an attempt to overshadow the WC. They are also ratcheting up the situation in Ukraine.

      • Ma_Laoshi

        This may well be true but if so, it’s only evidence that the current Russian leadership hasn’t got what it takes. Of course, before that there was the Iran nuclear deal; before that, Putin’s reelection; before that, Trump’s honeymoon (real or imagined).

        On the other side, in Washington it looks like a total clown train any day of the week, while in Tel Aviv Bibi seems to be at real risk of going to the slammer. And yet that doesn’t ever stop *them* from being able to act.

  • Nuno Cardoso da Silva

    In spite of the risks, time may have come to use those S-300 and S-400 against coalition aircraft attacking Syrian forces.

    • 35InfantryRegiment

      Napalm your house would be cool. Cooked coon.

      • Vitex

        choke on your falafel

  • Siegfried

    …. and Putin sits quiet and looks.
    That Netanyahu-visit in Moscow stinks more and more, day by day.

    • Ray Douglas

      We will see what happens when the World Cup is over in Russia. That seems to be the preoccupation at the moment.

      • Dr. Pro Liv

        This article is FAKE NEWS so no need for anti-Russian crap!

        • Ray Douglas

          Are you saying my posts are anti-Russian? If so you are a dipstick.

          • Dr. Pro. Liv.

            If I did, it wasn’t my intention.
            It was directed to guy above you I guess.
            Shit happens, sorry.

    • Dr. Pro Liv

      This is FAKE NEWS you asshole !
      So fake that looks like all your comments !

  • MAXXIMUS

    Israeli jets flying over the jordanian border and using long range missiles…

    • FlorianGeyer

      Or unmarked Israeli jets flying from US bases etc.

      • 35InfantryRegiment

        I like that conspiracy loonieness better.

        • FlorianGeyer

          Unmarked Black Hawks have been seen in all areas of CIA operations in recent years and with other CIA aircraft in previous decades.

  • hamster

    The only thing that ultimately matters is that as time goes on, the map gets redder and redder, until every inch of Syria is liberated by the SAA and the legitimate government of Syria.

  • Hide Behind

    Russia, odd game they are playing; first they cede the North of Euphrates to US control, refuse to defend their allied Syrians and Iranians from Israel attacks, and allowed US air to kill 60+of own tropp, Turkey to shoot down their plane and last week, after Israel i visit with them reneged on providing the S300
    missle to Syria.
    And now the latest: “Telling Iran they must leave Syria once Syria has won.”
    Won what, all but the portion US controls of course.
    In other words a split Syria, with its deadliest enemy still calling for Assads death and regime change, left without any Iranian allies or economic support.
    Suicidal policy for Syria.
    Who actually controls Syria, it most certainly is not Syrians, as more and more Russia, Israel, France, and US/Brit/NATO are deciding Syria’s future.
    Turkey is still a NATO member and very very much tied into Europe’s financial centers.
    US slap massive punatine economic sanctions upon Iran, sanctions making Iran’s out of nation military and financial support to Syria severely biting Into Iranian domestic programs.
    Russia and China are talking very large trade agreements, and “Silk Road” entry, with top Iranian officials, are these to offset the losses caused by US sanctions and further entice Iran out of Syria?
    A good cop, bad cop, by the two baddest cops organizations on earth.
    Putin being lauded as a peace maker, but at what real cost to Syrian Sovereignty.
    And further impoverishing an already impoverished nation. A Syrian gov that will “have” to join N W O debtor nations by selling its future and resources to the N W O Financial concerns.
    Peace will only come to Syria by not becoming Syrian.

  • Fernando Silva

    Fake News!!

  • FUKUS attacks to help their Daesh puppets, just like their attack on besieged DeZ which killed hundreds of SAA troops. No surprise that they also lie about doing it.

  • Ray Douglas

    A lot of what you say may be true but I ask you to look at the map of Syria of August 2015? According to some maps The SAA/Syrian Government controlled about 25%-30% of Syrian territory. Today the SAA soldiers and the Syrian Government control

    more than 60% of Syria. That’s a big difference from the above date. It’s too early to judge the outcome of the attack on Syria. Several areas were surrendered without a fight which save the lives of SAA soldiers and Syrian civilians which is a good thing. I do think when the western part of Syria is fully liberated from the terrorists that eastern Syria will reconcile. Don’t forget there are a lot of people in eastern Syria who support the Syrian government and don’t want the Kurds to rule them. There are already protests and some armed civilians who are attacking the US regime soldiers. Don’t jump to too many conclusions just yet. If Russia had not intervene Syria would not exist today, it would be a terrorist caliphate. Some credit where its due.
