DAMASCUS, Syria – The Syrian government reported a significant number of civilian and military casualties following a series of airstrikes by the US in the eastern part of the country near the border with Iraq, according to SANA. The strikes targeted several facilities and cities, causing extensive damage to both private and public property, the military stated.
The statement from the military claimed that the region hit by the US attack is the same area where the Syrian army is engaged in combat with the remaining members of the ISIS terrorist organization. The Syrian government accused the US of being involved and allied with the terrorist organization in this conflict.
The US airstrikes in Syria’s eastern region have raised concerns about the escalating violence in the area, as well as the potential impact on civilian populations and the ongoing conflict with ISIS. The Syrian government’s accusations against the US further complicate the already complex situation in the country.
The US has not yet commented on the Syrian government’s claims of civilian and military casualties as a result of the airstrikes. The lack of a response from the US adds to the uncertainty and raises questions about the motives and repercussions of the military intervention in Syria’s border region with Iraq.
The Syrian government’s allegation of civilian casualties and damage to public infrastructure is a significant development in the ongoing conflict in the region. The international community will be closely monitoring the situation and its potential implications for the broader conflict in Syria and the fight against terrorism.
