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.
