The US-led coalition has bombed a military column of Syrian government forces near Deir Ezzor city, Sky News Arabia reported on Monday citing local sources.

According to the report, the airstrikes hit the column near an oil field east of Deir Ezzor city and killed some number of Iranian-backed militias fighters as well as destroyed some military equipment. No more details were provided.

If the report is true, the incident may took place near the Thayyem oil field located  southeast of the city where an intense fighting was ongoing between ISIS and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

The TV channel said that the reported airstrikes were a message to the SAA and its allies to avoid crossing the Euphrates River. Nor the Syrian military nor the US-led coalition have commented on the report of Sky News Arabia.

Earlier sources linked to the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) reported refering to the alleged words of Major General Rupert Jones, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the US-led coalition in Syria and Iraq, that the coalition will  not allow pro-government troops to cross the  Euphrates and is ready to strike them if they attempt to do this. These reports have not also been denied by the coalition.

        Sometimes they turn out to be true as the US would not want this reported as it would damage their credibility in the eyes of the public. The thing is the US will have to withdraw as this will end up being mandated withdrawal by the UN and ignoring it would imperil both seats at the UN, many would be happy to not listen to another US screaming “Broomhilda” there.

        • John Whitehot

          They turend out to be true only when they struck near the Jordanian border.

          if it damaged the US credibility then we would see lots of reports from alternative and social medias and probably RT and SN.

          The truth is, the number of those report is ZERO.

          In the end, such news would be good for Israel and Saudia, currently (and always) the countries with a major interest in sending yanks to war with Syria.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            They are already on the hot seat for war crimes of bombing civilians , this never gets reported in the US, which is truly appalling. When they commit the war crime of bombing innocent civilians they add a spin they have always been giving it such as “Human Shields”. This seems to be their way of deflecting but how is it when there are no valid targets and yet they claim the same thing all the time.

            World War 2 was just a horrid intentional bombing campaign designed by the US and the allies followed suit. They continued killing civilians as they thought of this as psychological warfare and rarely hit military targets.

            The targets remained civilians until the end and even then they stepped up the bombings and killing of civilians, military targets they chose were actually the camps like Nordhausen etc. they bombed and strafed that for 2 days killing thousands of people there. The buildings in the photos you can see are bombed out , probably why they blamed the Germans for their actions there.

  • Trustin Judeau

    This report has been 3 hours old and there have been nothing from pro gov people I think so probably it is not true .But if it happened , no surprised . What to expect from the US led anti Syrian coalition .

    • dutchnational

      Likely you are correct. This sounds like the report by the PMU that got under heavy IS fire a few weeks ago near Mosul. As verybody “knows” IS is defeated, any large fire must be US airplanes. As it turned out there, it was indeed IS having more firepower then expected.

      US and Ru have a close communication on where their airforces will strike to prevent another occurrence like near Tabqah a few months ago.

      It will become clear soon.

      • Justin

        So why only Now is the SDF attacking DeZ?
        Why not finish off Raqqa city?
        Why did the SDF leave the south of Raqqa city open until the Tiger forces got there?

        We all know why, i just wanna hear your bullshit story!

        Go on, make some shit up!
        Reveal your bias!
        They made no deals!
        There is a war coming between the SDF and the SAA. I expect u to shut your mouth during that time!
        Go to another site!

        • Tarciso Ribeiro

          of course they don’t fight,they make deals,thats why the fight in RAQQA still going on,their objective is steal arab land for their Kudistan,but the will of Syrian people will prevail.

        • Jonathan Cohen

          such a war may well come, and when it does, I will support SDF for their abortion rights against SAA abortion banners. but the war has not come yet and until it does come, I would prefer both sides fight ISIS only. I do not know why SDF did not encircle Raqqa sooner or, once Raqqa was encircled, advance on Dier ezzor sooner. I guess both sides are trying to use isis against the other, which tactic I oppose on the part of both sides. Isis should be destroyed, not used.

          • Marc Fischer

            There’s a lot more to it buddy than mere abortion rights. Your hypothesis is moot. It’s really all about Israel and Iran. Never forget that Israel (the tail that wags the dog, America) has been totally stymied in her efforts to destroy Syria as an independent, cohesive state. Plan B is to cut the land route between Syria and Iraq. Plan C is to pressure the US, using the usual false-flag media events, to directly attack Iran. Any other political considerations are inconsequential in the overarching scheme of the Zionist regime . .

          • Jonathan Cohen

            As long as Israel respects abortion rights, they can take as much of arabia as they want. Abortion banners like Syria, Iran, and Saudi Arabia have no right to exist.

          • Cyrus

            Cohen, why have you not aborted yourself, just because your mommy didn’t do it is no excuse for you not to do it for yourself. Be a Man little boy.

          • Justin

            Abortion is either…
            1. the same as taking a shit
            2. Killing a whole baby

            Which one do u believe to be the truth?
            Getting something ut of your body that u don’t need or want
            Killing something so u don’t have to deal with it!

            You always avoid this question even though I know u are a troll!

            So im trolling the troll!

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        The known fact is the weapons of ISIS was receiving came from the base at Al Tanf so you can say the US played a heavy hand in the attacks in the area, by supplying the weapons and not sure about the manpower as they are hired guns.

    • Ilies Bekhtaoui

      in case it didn’t cause damage and the airstrike fails they would not report it to not scare or kill the soldiers morale

    • Ilies Bekhtaoui

      it was reported with casualities

      • WinstonSmith

        You can expect more of this, as Kurd puppets and the US terrorists leading them are already across the Euphrates from Deir Ezzor city. More ISISraeli-style “self-defense” and “mistaken” strikes from the “coalition” are to be expected.

    • You can call me Al

      We can hope it is not. The article does state “If the report is true”.

      • Carol Binkley

        There is definitely room for confusion. For someone, somewhere.

          • Carol Binkley

            How about this one, then: the name “Al” is not familiar to me at all.

    • FlorianGeyer

      A reaction will come but we have to consider that all US actions that harm the SAA and allies are aimed at enticing a knee jerk response that will benefit more US aggression . The Israeli’s do the same thing as both the US and Israelis are committing illegal acts within current international laws and those laws still have a modicum of restraint upon massive US/Israeli intervention.

      It is an intentional long game of chess by Russian strategists as they move their pieces around the board with an opponent that has barely mastered the game of chequers.

      • zencowboy61

        True but russia knows electronically where every is flying in and out of Syria air space from all their satellites and ground radars so it is a bit odd to allow a fighter group to come near SAA column…in a real war you dont ever allow that to happen…in a real war you have a air cap over the battlefield 24/7

        • FlorianGeyer

          A military reaction at that moment is exactly what the US wanted. It is surely prudent to keep ones powder dry until the time is right for a Head Shot? We are in the phoney war stage with the US/Russia. The US is probing but without any legal reason to escalate due to world opinion that they now brush aside there comes a time when the World Opinion is too much to ignore and the US is all to obviously seen as the Sponsor of World Terror.

          It is then that the public of Russia, China and others will be fully behind their governments as they neuter America and dispose of the Zionist influence there.

          • 888mladen .

            It is not prudent to leave SAA unprotected from the US air assaults. There are plenty of MANPADS in RU stock gathering dust and rust.

          • FlorianGeyer

            I would agree with that.

      • Kell

        Yes the Russians will go for an assymetrical message like the Sukhoi turning off the Donald Cooks Aegis radar system and shutting down all systems onboard other than stearage and propultion – there are many ways they can slip the US the mickey from dropping their powergrid mid winter/summer and make it look like something/someone else did it – many options.

  • Maher Awwad

    According to a pro- regime site quoting military sources, no such attack had taken place. Apparently fake news to lift the low morale of the opposition after the string of. Ictories by the SAA and allied forces.

I’m gonna do me a false flag chemical attack on the very day that the UN delegation is coming to checkout the chemical attack on Khan al-Assal”, would that be a False Flag ? definitely not, a FF is being rail roaded, to do that you need to have tracks, Turkey because of its political geography has got tracks Syria hasn’t.
        Another good analogy is “Red Shift” that’s where a Heavenly Body a galaxy or something like that is falling out of orbit, maybe Dark Matter is coming into play.
        I’m not sure about that but I do know that the Partisans paid a heavy price for the damage they did to Germany, false flags applied at that time and were American owned even then, Hitler fough back with reprisals but Red Shift got the better of him, that doesn’t mean reprisals are wrong, it means Red Shift was right at the time.

        • zencowboy61

          The US does not set out to win wars…I served in afghanistan. US is there for multiple reasons…but the main one is to take and sell opioids 90% of opioids come from afghanistan. The CIA funds its projects with the money…and buys off people with it. the second major reason is geographical pressure on russia and china. Just like Iraq was to be a ground staging area for the eventual attack on Iran…I served in iraq also……I know my shit.

This would be a breaking point in the support in the US.

    This is fake news, directly from member states of the US Coalition, the same countries that have told the Kurds that they can grab some free oil resources in Deir Ez-Zor province.. It is what they wish would happen …. but it didn’t happen.
    The Thayyem oil field was captured 2 days ago. It is directly South of Deir Ez-Zor and about 12 miles from the Euphrates river.

    When the SAA does cross the river, it is going to be directly East of the Airport. The Russians are there. They have pontoons, and are setting up air defenses. If they or the SAA are attacked, the SDF-YPG-PKK Kurds out on Hwy 7 are within artillery range right now.
