Three Syrian soldiers killed, 16 wounded in US bombing of base

At least three Syrian government troops were killed and 16 were wounded on Monday morning in airstrikes by US warplanes on the Deir Ezzor army base in the eastern part of the country. The airstrikes apparently targeted an ISIS facility adjacent to Syrian army positions. Syria's Foreign Ministry denounced the attack, calling it a "flagrant aggression."
DEBKAfile: It was the first attack in which Syrian soldiers were killed from a direct hit by US planes in Syria.
