BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:15 P.M.) – In addition to allegations coming in about an hour ago that Russian warplanes bombed the positions of Kurdish-led forces in eastern Deir Ezzor Governorate, official Kurdish social media sources are now also claiming that their defenses are being struck by Syrian Arab Army artillery.
According to reports from the official twitter account of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units, in addition to Russian airstrikes targeting US-backed fighters around Conoco Gas Field, Syrian Army artillery is also carrying out a bombardment of the same area.
Kurdish sources say that the Syrian Army artillery bombardment consists of rocket and standard shelling attacks.
The latest reports claim that the attack is still ongoing.
