Led strikes on Syria pro-regime forces kill 100

According to the coalition, around 500 pro-regime soldiers attacked the Syrian Democratic forces using artillery, mortar, and Russian-made tanks.

The US-led coalition's attack on pro-government forces in Syria has again proven that Washington's true goal is to capture "economic assets" instead of fighting terrorism, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

No US or US-backed forces died but the US official estimated more than 100 pro-Syrian government forces were killed in the counter-attack.

The official said no coalition or US personnel had been killed or wounded in the engagement but that one member of the SDF sustained injuries.

"Now they say that their presence will continue until they are convinced that a stable political settlement process, leading to regime change, has begun in Syria", he said.

SOHR said the fighters that attacked the SDF headquarters consisted of Afghan Shiite forces and local tribesmen in support of President Bashar Assad. A total of 25 pro-government fighters were wounded.

When asked if he was considering firing Rosenstein after the memo's release last Friday, Trump said, "You figure that one out". In a statement, Brand defended her department, saying, "The men and women of the Department of Justice impress me every day".

Coalition warplanes and artillery hit the pro-Assad forces as they advanced across the Euphrates river into areas held by the Syrian Democratic Forces, the observatory said. The Syrian army is supported by Iranian-backed militias, Lebanese resistance Shitte group Hezbollah and Russian forces and contractors.

"I am gravely concerned that the Trump administration is purposefully stumbling into a broader conflict, without a vote of Congress or clear objectives", said Sen.

"Coalition officials were in regular communication with Russian counterparts before, during and after the thwarted PRF [pro-regime forces] attack", Veale said.

Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia says he will raise the US -led coalition's deadly airstrike on Syrian government-backed troops during closed consultations later Thursday in the U.N. Security Council. Now that the common goal of clearing out IS militants from Syria is nearly realized, Damascus and its allies have repeatedly threatened war against US troops if they don't leave the country.

The US has launched rare air strikes in eastern Syria to thwart an attack on allied Kurdish and Arab fighters by forces aligned to Syria's government. A number of US military advisers were present alongside local allied forces, and the Americans led a punishing response that other officials said killed about 100 of the assailants.

A US Navy F/A-18 shot down a Syrian regime Su-22 jet last June that had attacked US-backed forces on the ground.
