The Western coalition has attacked a camp of the Syrian Government Army, killing 3 soldiers and injuring another 13. The attacks took place in the province of Deir ez Zor. The Syrian government confirmed the information and filed an official protest with the UN Security Council regarding the US-led coalition’s airstrikes on Syrian troops.
This is the first act of its kind in the US-led coalition strikes which have been going for more than a year now.
The province Deir ez Zor itself is very important as it’s one of ISIS’ strongholds and a big oil producer for the jihadists.
The important thing now is to see the reactions of Russia, Syria, Turkey and the United States. Russia has deployed S-400 defense systems which can stop any planes from entering Syria if they want.
