Led coalition hits pro-Assad fighters' convoy

The U.S. -led coalition fighting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) said the strike happened Thursday when pro-regime forces advanced in a "de-confliction zone" and posed a threat to coalition-backed forces.

A day earlier, the USA -led coalition struck Syrian forces near Tanf, as the forces were advancing toward an area controlled by the US -led rebels, where British and USA bases are reportedly located in Tanf.

A US-led coalition spokesperson has confirmed that coalition strikes in southern Syria struck Syrian government armed forces, BuzzFeed News reported on Thursday.

"The Syrian Arab Army is fighting terrorism on its territory, and no party has the right to determine the course of its operations", the source reportedly said.

Russian Federation condemned on May 19 strikes by the us -led coalition against Syrian forces as "unacceptable", state media reported, after the bombing of pro-government troops.

Gatilov said the US's airstrike would not help efforts to find a political solution to the war, now in its seventh year.

They captured the remote town of Sabaa Biyar near the strategic Damascus-Baghdad highway in an attempt to prevent areas left by Islamic State hardline militants in March from falling into the hands of Western-backed moderate Free Syrian Army (FSA) rebels.

Mauricio Pochettino promises to stay on as Tottenham manager
Tottenham was rampant as it sealed a 13th win in its last 16 games in all competitions, having already cemented second place. Mauricio Pochettino says he sees no reason for striker, Harry Kane to leave White Hart Lane in the transfer window.

One of the USA officials said the strikes near the town of At Tanf destroyed at least one tank and a bulldozer, and another said it followed warning shots by US aircraft meant to dissuade the fighters from advancing further. He added that forces of the USA -led coalition will continue to defend themselves against IS or any other threat to Coalition or partnered forces in the area.

Asked about the Tanf episode Thursday, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said the strike would not draw the United States further into the war.

Salim Zahran, an analyst close to the Syrian government, said that US planes targeted a Syrian army battalion in the Shahma area, 40 miles from the Tanf border area.

The airstrikes, which killed Syrian government forces and Iranian-backed militia, occurred close to the border with Iraq.

We are not increasing our role in the Syrian civil war, he said.

There can be no justification for the USA coalition's strike on the Syrian Army positions, the Defense Ministry stressed, adding that the attack "shows the real goals" of the coalition. It is unclear whether Russian troops were operating with the pro-Syrian government forces at the time of the attack.

Later, Secretary of Defence Jim Mattis stressed that U.S. is not getting more involved in Syria's civil war. Representatives of Syria's government and opposition High Negotiations Committee were in Switzerland for the sixth round of United Nations -backed peace negotiations, but there has been little sign of progress.
