Russia accused US-backed SDF of firing at the SAA troops in the Eastern Deir Ezzor and warned the U.S. Army of retaliation in case of any new incident of this kind.

RuMoD Spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said that the SAA forces were twice subjected to heavy mortar shelling from positions on the eastern bank of the Euphrates river, controlled by SDF fighters and U.S. special forces, adding: “Any new incident of this kind will lead to retaliation strike on the source of fire.”

Konashenkov pointed out that the Russian special forces were currently with the governmental forces in the areas which came under fire.
