Syria: Attack on military shows 'real goals' of US

Syria's Defense Ministry confirmed on Friday that the US-led coalition struck the government's military forces in the south of the country and claimed the attack "shows the real goals" of the coalition. The ministry stated the airstrike on Thursday hit "one of our [Syria's] military points" in the town of At Tanf.

The US-led coalition said on Thursday it conducted an airstrike on Syrian and Iranian pro-Assad forces, after reportedly warning the convoy not to advance towards the training zone of the coalition forces. The coalition insisted the attack was carried out in order to stop the Syrian forces that posed “a threat” to US-backed fighters in southern Syria.
