US-Led Coalition Strikes Pro-Regime Forces in Syria: Official

US-Led Coalition Strikes Pro-Regime Forces in Syria: Official

Tuesday, 06 June 2017 03:14 PM

The US-led coalition "destroyed" a unit of pro-regime forces in Syria on Tuesday as they advanced near an area where coalition commandos have been training and advising rebels, a military statement said.

A group of about 60 pro-regime soldiers moved into the area with a tank, artillery, anti-aircraft weapons and armed technical vehicles, posing a threat to the coalition forces at At-Tanf Garrison near the border with Jordan and Iraq, the coalition said in the statement.

"The coalition issued several warnings via the de-confliction line prior to destroying two artillery pieces, an anti-aircraft weapon, and damaging a tank," it said.

It was the second time in less than a month that coalition forces have attacked pro-regime forces as they headed toward the garrison.

Coalition planes on May 18 pounded the front of a convoy that had apparently been headed toward the At-Tanf garrison, in an established "deconfliction zone" northwest of the garrison.
