Russian Military Advisors Killed in US Airstrike in Eastern Syria
Local sources told Media that three pro-government Hezbollah forces, several tribal fighters and several Russian military advisors were killed in US raid in Khasham gas field in Eastern Deir Ezzur. The US-led coalition fighter jets carried out heavy bombardment in an energy-rich region on the Eastern bank of the Euphrates River on Wednesday.
The Russian Defense Ministry had earlier announced that the Russian military men were not in the region on the Eastern Bank of the Euphrates River that came under US air attack. In the meantime, the Russia-run Humeimim Airbase in Western Syria announced via its Central network that the US air attack on the Syrian Army troops’ positions in Eastern Deir Ezzur was aimed at destabilizing the region.
The Russian military in Humeimim airbase in the coastal province of Lattakia further added the US-led collation attacks on the Syrian government forces are unjustifiable.
