US Coalition accidentally bombs Kurdish forces in east Syria
The U.S.-led Coalition accidentally bombed the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in eastern Syria on Wednesday.
Two U.S.-Coalition F-15 jets allegedly bombed the Syrian Democratic Forces in eastern Deir Ezzor, killing at least half dozen fighters in the process, Al-Masdar News reported citing the RIA News Agency.
Citing a diplomatic source, the RIA report said that the accidentally bombing disrupted the Syrian Democratic Forces’ offensive against the Islamic State (ISIS).
The incident, which took place near the town of Hajin in the Syrian eastern Deir ez-Zor province, did not just disrupt the operation but also reportedly led to numerous defections in the ranks of Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). Even worse, the terrorists managed to seize some territories in the area, the source added.
A diplomatic source told RIA that the US’ “lack of coordination and professionalism” endangered the life of their own allies.
The U.S. Coalition and SDF have yet to comment on this allegation from the RIA News Agency.
