The US military is claiming that anti-ISIS coalition forces repelled a threatening Syrian Army-led attack consisting of five hundred troops – backed by artillery and tanks – during the night of Wednesday to Thursday against positions of Arab and Kurdish partner militias at oilfields near the town of Khasham on the eastern shore of the Euphrates River.
At the present time, the Syrian Army is yet to release a statement on the engagement.
The U.S.-led coalition had alerted Russian officials about the presence of SDF forces in the area far in advance of the thwarted attack, the U.S. official said.
“Coalition officials were in regular communication with Russian counterparts before, during and after the thwarted (enemy) attack,” the official said.

Clearly Russia does not have a problem with this, otherwise they would be doing something more than hacking our trains and setting off tornado sirens.

its strange how theres a collective agreement on the American war machine and its never ending conquest, yet collectively, every American seems kinda 'meh... we're The ones writing the history from our perspective, so we're the good guys'.
