The United States has just admitted to firing upon “pro-Syrian” forces who allegedly attacked the US proxy Kurdish led SDF terrorist militia.
According to a Pentagon statement,
“Syrian pro-regime forces initiated an unprovoked attack against well-established Syrian Democratic Forces headquarters Feb. 7. In defence of Coalition and partner forces, the Coalition conducted strikes against attacking forces to repel the act of aggression against partners engaged in the Global Coalition’s defeat-Daesh mission”.
It is not entirely clear what Washington means by “pro-regime forces”, but local reports suggest that the US fired upon Syrian Arab Army regulars in defence of Kurdish terrorists. These reports were later debunked when Syria and the US both seemed to agree that the fighters who came under attack were volunteer Popular Mobilisation Units.
The US also admitted that its own troops are “embedded” among Kurdish terrorists who comprise the SDF.
According to initial reports over 100 troops have been killed in the US attack.
