Syria says US-led coalition fired missiles on its positions
DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syria’s state news agency says the U.S.-led coalition has fired several missiles at Syrian army positions in the country’s east, causing material damage.
The SANA report says the positions targeted Sunday night are in the Ghorab Mountains south of the eastern town of Sukhna.
There has been no immediate confirmation from the U.S.-led coalition.
Such attacks by the U.S.-led coalition against Syrian troops have been rare. In 2016, warplanes of the U.S.-led coalition bombed Syrian army positions in the eastern city of Deir el-Zour and killed dozens of soldiers.
U.S. troops have a base in Tanf in southern Syria near the Jordanian and Iraqi borders, and U.S. troops are also in the country’s north, near the border with Turkey.
