Russia Just Bombed US Backed Troops In Syria

U.S. officials spoke with CNN on Monday and told them that when Russia bombed US-backed anti-ISIS fighters in Syria on Saturday there were US troops present.

The official said that US personnel were “at most a couple of miles” away from the where the bomb landed, adding that the two countries came close to a major international incident.

The US-led coalition fighting ISIS, Operation Inherent Resolve, issued a statement Saturday saying “Russian munitions impacted a location known to the Russians to contain Syrian Democratic Forces and coalition advisers.”

The Russian military was initially denied a request to strike an area in the province of Deir Ezzor because there were US-backed Syrian forces there, but the Russian military went on with the strike anyway

“The Russian Aerospace Force inflict pinpoint strikes only on targets, confirmed through multiple channels, in the districts controlled by IS,” ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said.

He added that Russian command “notified in advance the US counterparts about borders of the military operation” in Deir Ezzor.
