US-led strike hits government targets in Syria. U.S. denies Syrian state media report

US-led strike hits government targets in Syria
US-led coalition warplanes have targeted several Syrian military positions in the country's eastern Dayr al-Zawr province.

The source added that no casualties were caused by the attacks that only resulted in "material damage."

The US-led coalition has been conducting airstrikes against what are said to be Daesh targets inside Syria since September 2014 without any authorization from the Damascus government or a UN mandate, according to presstv.ir.

The military alliance has repeatedly been accused of targeting and killing civilians. It has also been largely incapable of achieving its declared goal of destroying Daesh.

Earlier in the day, Syrian army soldiers and pro-government fighters repelled Daesh militant attacks on a number of military sites in Dayr al-Zawr province near the border with Iraq.

SANA reported that Daesh militants sought to attack army outposts on the outskirts of Mayadin town, located about 44 kilometers southeast of the provincial capital city of Dayr al-Zawr, but they were confronted by units of government troops and their allies.

An unidentified number of terrorists were killed and wounded in the process, and their munitions destroyed.

  • A US military official denied any knowledge of the strikes.


"We have no operational reporting of a US-led coalition strike against pro-Syrian regime targets or forces," Captain Bill Urban, a spokesman for US Central Command, told Reuters.

Another Pentagon spokesman, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: "We have no information to substantiate those reports."

Syrian state media did not immediately report the strikes.

  1. US-led coalition warplanes have bombed several Syrian army positions in the eastern Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor, state media outlet SANA reports, citing a military source.
    The attack took place shortly after midnight on Thursday. SANA reported that the US-led coalition aircraft inflicted limited material damage and no casualties. The airstrikes, which hit near the city of Al-Bukamal, were reportedly coordinated with anti-government militants.

    Earlier, Lebanon’s Hezbollah group, an ally of the Syrian forces in the fight with Islamic State (IS, former ISIS/ISIL) said the coalition jets targeted two Syrian army outposts, including an energy installation near the Iraqi border.
