Video shows latest US-led coalition airstrike on pro-Assad forces near al-Tanf in southeast Syria

US-led coalition forces destroyed what were reportedly pro-Syrian regime forces near al Tanf in southeast Syria on Tuesday, Operation Inherent Resolve officials said in a release.

According to the release, pro-Assad forces, consisting of a tank, artillery, antiaircraft weapons, armed technical vehicles, and more than 60 troops, entered the “well-established de-confliction zone.”
