The strike was the second by the US against "pro-regime" forces since Wednesday, according to the USA military's Central Command.

Tomlinson said the tank was destroyed after "pro-regime forces" fired on United States special operations troops near the location where 500 pro-government forces attacked a headquarters used by SDF and United States troops last week.

The ISIS Hunters specifically condemned both the U.S. Coalition and the Kurdish forces that are now in control of the majority of the northeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.

Moscow denies that any significant number of Russians were killed in the United States strike, calling the reports, "distorted data", while urging the media to ignore the "erroneous information".

Earlier this week, media reports claimed that a recent USA airstrike in Syria left Russian servicemen dead, putting the figures anywhere from dozens to several hundred, RT reported.

Also Thursday, Turkish Defense Minister Nurettin Canikli said he asked Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis to end US support for the Syrian Kurdish militia fighting the Islamic State in Syria.

It was eventually revealed that Russian military contractors were mixed in with the Assad regime's allies in that attack, and a number of them were killed.

The Kremlin, which has provided crucial military support to its ally, Mr. Assad, has been equally opaque about what happened.

Mattis said the Russians told American officials there were no Russian forces involved in the attack, even though Russians have now been discovered among the dead.

But American Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said they had no such information on casualties, and the Kremlin did not confirm any Russian deaths.

Russian and US news organizations reported earlier this week that an unknown number of Russian military contractors were killed in the ferocious USA counterattack last week.

The US-led coalition said it killed at least 100 regime and allied fighters in Deir Ezzor province in the February 7 attack after pro-regime combatants attacked positions held by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces.

"What we are seeing in Syria today not only imperils the de-escalation arrangements and regional stability, it also undermines the efforts for a political solution". He urged in particular the three countries that have brokered localised ceasefires - Russian Federation and Iran, which back the regime, and Turkey, which supports the opposition - "to use their influence to help reduce violence".

"Instead we to see the Assad regime continue to bomb, starve and yes, gas, civilians", Haley said, referring to President Bashar al-Assad's government.

"The Russians professed that they were not aware when we called them about that force that had crossed [the Euphrates]".

Assistant football coach killed in Parkland school shooting being hailed as hero
When a volleyball team needed a fill-in coach, Hixon took over; the same thing happened with the wrestling team, Sanzari said. Tragedies like the Parkland, Florida high school show the worst in humanity, but also demonstrate its best.
