September 18, 2016 – US Airstrike Accidentally Kills 62 Syrian Soldiers Fighting ISIS In Syria

The United States Air force has admitted its planes carried out an attack in eastern Syria that the Russian army says killed at least 62 Syrian troops fighting IS.

The US said its planes halted the attack in Deir al-Zour when informed of the Syrian presence and would not knowingly strike them.

The strikes allowed IS jihadists to advance, the Russians said.
Russia earlier said the current ceasefire in Syria was in danger of collapse and the US would be to blame.

The cessation of hostilities does not include attacks by the US on IS or other jihadist groups.

The US Central Command statement said the coalition believed it was attacking positions of so-called Islamic State and the raids were “halted immediately when coalition officials were informed by Russian officials that it was possible the personnel and vehicles targeted were part of the Syrian military”.

It said the “Combined Air Operations Center had earlier informed Russian counterparts of the upcoming strike”.

“Syria is a complex situation with various military forces and militias in close proximity, but coalition forces would not intentionally strike a known Syrian military unit. The coalition will review this strike and the circumstances surrounding it to see if any lessons can be learned.”

BBC News reports that Russia’s defence ministry earlier said that if the US air strikes did turn out to be an error, it would be because of Washington’s stubborn refusal to co-ordinate military action with Moscow.

  1. The unintentional strikes from the US fighter jets that led to the death of dozens of syrian soldiers is surely going to cause a very serious rift and friction between washington and moscow. Russia has already term the incident “WASHINGTON SUPPORT OF ISIS” which I don’t believe could have be the case because it will totally be against the US interest in the middle east. I don’t consider labeling US fight against ISIS in syria as been “aggressor”as claimed by the syrian government .

    But I believe Russia is the main aggressor for backing syrian government’s brutality against it own people that has led to the death of more than 300,000 of it citizens since 2011 till this minute that is still ongoing which has also help in keeping “basha Al a saad” the most wicked and heartless dictator in human history in power. The civil war in syria would have ended for long if not for stupid russian backing of this tyrant ruler.

    The war is now increasing in intensity as if its just starting. Men,women,elderly,children,sick ones have being brutally massacred without hope of any end to the war. Many foreign muslim jihadists terrorist have made both country of syria and iraq there save haven and have enslaved and marry off their women and young girls and had their men,brothers ,father killed in there thousands and buried them in mass grave.

    May God come to the aid of syrian and iraqi people. I just hope the next US president will act decisively to counter the main aggressor-RUSSIA in syria so that peace can return to that country.

  2. Nothing is accidental. They knew well what they were doing. Sixty two(62) Syrian Army, haba! that’s definitely not accidental. It was deliberate act given connection of us link with isle. They created them to begin with. They created bh as well.

    Well, from muslim perspective, Syrian is a battle ground and the final phase. There is nothing accidental in this. They have been protecting is/bh. They created those evil to destabilize places. And Ofcourse, Russia has its own goal as well.

    • Dearest Amanda.
      Can you prove your comment sweetie ?
      Does it mean you’ve need made any mistakes in your life ?
      Be it big or small ?
      My dear, I work with this guys, and am not supposed to table their issue or what we go through to eliminate evil and protect the innocent.
      We should be sorry for the mothers, fathers, wives and children that lost their loved ones by people they banked on to help them fight.
      Yea, this is very sad & disturbing.
      Well, you’re entitled to your opinion as an adult so go ahead.

  3. So with all their technology and accuracy or target bombing, they still call this a mistake? Bearing in mind that America wants Syria President out,supporting the ISIS in the name of Rebels proves that this is an intentional act.

  4. for every happening event, there must be underlined causes. Hmmmm do they said they mistakenly strike the Syrian armies? hmmmm May be they are also mistakenly buying the IS crude oil. who is fooling who here? The Russian government had said it all. one day, just one day the truth will reveal itself.
