United States forces reportedly killed more than 100 Russian mercenaries inside Syria

United States forces reportedly killed more than 100 Russian mercenaries inside Syriaā€¯

Russia plans to help Syria rebuild energy facilities that have been devastated by years of war, Russian Energy Minister Aleksandr Novak has said.

Syria is simply not within our nation's sphere of interest, nor is there anything to be gained by continued USA military involvement in any of the proxy wars now being waged on its soil.

The Russian citizens are fighting in Syria for a private military company, according to numerous reports. The attack was reportedly called for by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) militia and lasted for about four hours.

"As the hostile forces turned west and retreated, we ceased fire", Harrigian, speaking from his headquarters in Qatar, said in a video teleconference with reporters at the Pentagon.

Then, on Saturday, a USA military drone aircraft destroyed a Russian-made T-72 tank near the area around Al Tabiyeh.

The Russian Defence Ministry has said that none of its soldiers were in the area and suggested that pro-Syrian government fighters may have failed to coordinate their actions with the Russian military. The Russian Government has repeatedly accused the United States and its allies of attempting to use the conflict, which has killed hundreds of thousands and created even more refugees, of trying to unseat President Bashar al-Assad.

USA strikes have reportedly killed at least 600 Russian mercenaries recently, according to reports. I can't give you anything on that.

A United States official said that 100 fighters loyal to President Assad of Syria, many thought to be Russian, died in a failed attempt to storm a base manned by U.S. special forces and US-backed Arab and Kurdish troops in the Deir ez-Zor region, east the Euphrates River. "We have not received that word" at key USA military headquarters, including the Pentagon.

According to reports from the Department of Defense, a Russian-made T-72 Main Battle Tank was destroyed by a drone strike after it attempted to engage Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the coalition advisors working alongside them in Syria on Saturday, one week after a large scales engagement between pro-Assad and SDF troops forces in the region. On Monday liberal presidential candidate Grigory Yavlinsky said: "If massive Russian casualties took place, then relevant officials. must announce this to the country and find out who is responsible".

President Trump has said that Russia constitutes one of its top national security threats, but has also cultivated a cozy relationship with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

Russian Federation has not confirmed the deaths that were first reported by USA media, saying such reports should not be treated as "primary sources".

Russian Federation has waged a military campaign in Syria since September 2015, helping Syrian President Bashar Assad's government seize large chunks of territory and turn the tide of war into its favor.

"I don't have any reporting - that some Russians - non-Russian federation soldiers, but Russian contractors were among the casualties".

What about the Russian mercenaries?

.

Mattis called the situation "perplexing", noting that the reported attack on the SDF base, which allegedly brought about the deadly American retaliation, "makes no sense, it does not appear to be anything coordinated by the Russians".
