The Pentagon has denied information that US forces carried out airstrikes on the Syrian-Iraqi border. This was written by Wayne Marotto, the official representative of the operation of American troops in these countries, “Inner Resolve” in his Twitter.
“I can confirm that we did not launch air strikes on Abu Kemal on September 14, 2021,” Marotto said.
Earlier, a source in the Iraqi militia told RIA Novosti that on the night of September 15, a military plane struck an air strike on two cars on the border of Syria and Iraq.
On June 28, the American McDonnell Douglas F-15E fighter-bomber carried out airstrikes on objects that allegedly belong to pro-Iranian paramilitary groups in the border region of Iraq and Syria. The Syrian Foreign Ministry called them a violation of sovereignty, and representatives of official Baghdad promised to investigate the incident. The United States explained the airstrikes with a desire to avoid an escalation of the conflict.
