Syrian Army denies striking Kurdish militia in Deir Ezzor.

The Syrian Armed Forces has categorically denied conducting any airstrike against the US-backed Kurdish forces stationed in the eastern bank of the Euphrates.

“The Syrian Air Force is absolutely not responsible for the airstrike that hit the Kurdish forces located in the eastern bank of the Euphrates River,” a military source exclusively told Muraselon.

“As part of our mutual and continuous cooperation, we – the Syrian military – are informed in advance with and sorties conducted by the Russian Air Force.

Hereby, I can confirm that our friend the Russians haven’t conducted any airstrike against the Kurds in east Deir Ezzor,” the source added.

The same source alluded that the US-coalition might have mistakenly bombed its Kurdish proxies.

Pro-Kurdish media reported that the US-backed Kurdish militants have been targeted by unknown airstrike around the Industrial Zone located to the northeast of Deir Ezzor just on the eastern bank of the Euphrates.

Later on, those same media outlets accused the Syrian or Russian jets of the airstrike, which killed and injured scores.
