Al Jazeera News reports that US-led Coalition aircraft have again struck Syrian regime forces in northern Deir Ezzor province. The reported attack comes on the heels of airstrikes against ‘Wagner’ mercenaries who were firing on US and Coalition forces in the same region. Possibly over 100 were killed during the prior American airstrikes and dozens more wounded.

No information was given regarding possible further Russian nationals killed in today’s violence. It seems the U.S. command elements have denied the attacks.

“There were no reported Coalition strikes conducted in Syria on Feb. 25, 2018. Nor have there been any reported Coalition strikes in the area you reference in the past 72 hours. The Coalition makes every effort to minimize civilian casualties and damage to civilian property to the greatest extent possible,” said coalition spokesmen.
