American warplanes again targeted Shia militia forces allied to the Syrian government on Tuesday, the second strike on pro-Assad fighters in less than a month.
U. S. officials allege the militia posed a threat to Americans and the rebels they train at a base near the southern Syrian-Iraqi border crossing in al-Tanf, however based on what is known about the militia’s operations, the threat may have been non-existent.
A Syrian military source said the strike caused deaths and material damage, and that it showed the coalition was ‘in support of terrorism,’ likely referring to the fact that the U. S. strikes have stifled Syrian regime plans for an eventual offensive on remaining ISIS-held territory in the country.
