British Royal Air Force Typhoons dropped a single Paveway IV on pro-Assad positions after a group of anti-Damascus Maghawir al-Thowra opposition militia and coalition “advisers” were attacked outside the al-Tanf base, prompting the RAF response.
According to the Sunday Times, the air strike killed one Syrian Army officer and wounded seven others.
“There was no need to inform Parliament of this hostile action, because only in the event that civilian casualties have resulted from a RAF strike would the [defense secretary] inform parliament of events,”
British and US Special Forces troops and trainers deployed in southern Syria in 2016 and have been engaged in the training of anti-government terrorists.
Damascus has repeatedly demanded that the coalition end its “illegal presence” in the country. Damascus and Moscow have also accused the US coalition of supporting ISIS in the region.
The US coalition has no UN mandate or authorization from Damascus, and the Syrian government has called its war crime activities a violation of its sovereignty.
The USA and its allies have repeatedly targeted Syrian government troops, most recently in April, where in response to an alleged chemical attack in Douma, they launched over 100 cruise missiles @ government-controlled cities and facilities.
Syria and its Russian and Iranian partners proved the Douma ‘attack’ a false-flag operation designed to justify new Zionist attacks on Syria.
The US military invaded and annexed 80% of the Syrian oil fields and controls 25% of Syrian territory in order to support the Israeli occupation agenda in the Middle East.
