So much for Obama/Kerry’s pretend cease fire…
US-led coalition jets have bombed Syrian government forces’ positions near the eastern city of Deir ez-Zor, killing 62 troops and “paving the way” for Islamic State militants, the Syrian Army General Command told the state television.
Syrian government says the raid aided ISIS.
The US Central Command later has issued a statement, saying that it had no intention of targeting Syrian government forces near Dier ez-Zor.
“Syria is a complex situation with various military forces and militias in close proximity, but [the] coalition would not intentionally strike a known Syrian military unit,” the statement read.
