Pentagon accuses Russian jets of hitting US-backed Syrian fighters

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. September 16, 2017, 11:00 PM (IDT)

The Pentagon and US allies in Syria accused Russian jets of Saturday “impacting a location known to the Russians to contain [US-backed] Syrian Democratic Forces and coalition advisers” east of the Euphrates River in Syria’s Deir Ez Zour province.. The Kremlin denied the allegation.

“Several SDF fighters were wounded,” the statement added. None of the advisers were injured.

But Russia’s military spokesman denied Moscow targeted the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Arab and Kurdish fighters supported by Washington. “This is not possible. Why would we bomb them?” military spokesman Igor Konashenkov said.
DEBKAfile: The alleged attack took place shortly after Syrian and Hizballah forces crossed the Euphrates with Russian air cover and assistance, in defiance of a coalition warning. See DEBKAfile top story.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.

      Putin 86′d the USSR and the bolsheviks from Russia, removed the central bank, and restored many freedoms. He also made it against the law for the media to be traitors like they are in the now bolshevik run US. The bolsheviks created communism, and currently promote homosexuality wherever they are allowed. Putin created laws in Russia to stifle homo tyranny the west now enjoys. The bolsheviks own all media, and banks in the west, and use them to overthrow it’s various governments. The Russian culture, and borders are secure with Putin. This infuriates the bolsheviks who no longer have a say inside of Russia.

      Debka is an Israeli propaganda platform.

      The US Congress did not authorize US troops to be in Syria
      The USA is breaking international law invading a country and hypocritically accuses Russia of the same thing in Crimea
      The USA is funding, training and supplying weapons to terrorists no matter what they say they identify as whether FSA or otherwise
      The US is breaking UN mandates in attacking a sovereign independent nation
      Israel is backing and funding ISIS too and providing medical aid to the terrorists
      Israel is attacking Syria and using Iran as their excuse. What right has Israel to attack any country who invited others into their country to fight terrorists?
      The world supports Russia in its attempts to keep a multi-polar world and not allow the introduction of a NWO
