According to the SANA News Agency, US-led Coalition Air Forces struck several positions of the Syrian army in the eastern Syrian desert.
According to Reuters and AFP, the strikes allegedly took place near an energy installation located near the Iraqi border, about 100 km (60 miles) west of the Euphrates river where the US-led Coalition is fighting against Daesh militants.
“Some of our military positions between Abu Kamal and Hmeima were hit this morning in an aggression by American coalition warplanes,” a Syrian military source was quoted as saying by AFP citing state news agency SANA.
The attack was first reported by the press office of Lebanon’s Hezbollah militant movement, an ally of the Syrian government. It said warplanes had targeted army positions near the T2 oil facility in the eastern Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor.
