Syria claims 38 troops killed in US-led air strike near Abu Kamal

US anti-ISIS coalition jets are reported by Syrian military sources to have attacked Syrian military units at Al-Harri near the strategic town of Abu Kamal on the eastern border with Iraq early Monday. At least 38 Syrian troops are reported killed. The US-led coalition spokesman denied any air strikes in that part of Syria. Other sources report that the dead soldiers belonged to Hizballah or the pro-Iranian Shiite militias. In recent days, Damascus is pushing allegations of US collaboration with ISIS forces in eastern Syria, as part of the Russian-Syrian propaganda campaign to force American forces to leave eastern Syria.

    At least they didn’t have to endure a floating video ad for Samsung Galaxy that opens another window when you try to click the fake close button.

    I can never tell if it’s the work of a hacker trying to take down the site or the webmaster’s latest scheme to rake in a few ₪.
