Syrian: Air Strike Kills Seven Hezbollah Fighters

Syrian: Air Strike Kills Seven Hezbollah Fighters.
(Monday), An air strike carried out by an unidentified warplane killed seven Hezbollah fighters in eastern Syria, three sources familiar with the incident told (Reuters).



The identity of the warplane was not confirmed, but the sources did not rule out the possibility that it was Russian “friendly fire.”

The air strike struck a Hezbollah position in eastern Homs province, where the Iran-backed Lebanese group is fighting Daesh alongside the Syrian and Russian militaries.

A spokesman for the US-led Coalition said the location was outside its area of operations.

The coalition is also conducting air strikes in Syria against Daesh in support of the Syrian Democratic Forces, an alliance of Arab and Kurdish militias.
