US-led coalition destroys pro-government forces within deconfliction zone in Syria – Pentagon

The US-led coalition inside Syria says that it has destroyed pro-government forces that entered the deconfliction zone established around a coalition training facility. The coalition last struck a pro-government convoy in the area on May 18.
UPDATE: On Wednesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov rejected the US’ justification for the attack, saying Moscow does not recognize any “deconfliction zone” declared by the US unilaterally. He said such zones were different from “de-escalation zones,” which Russia, Turkey and Iran are in the process of establishing with the full support of the United Nations Security Council and the government of Syria.
