Washington has been warned by Moscow that if the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) attack Russian or Syrian soldiers in Deir Ezzor that Russia will retaliate to such aggression, Defense Ministry Spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on Thursday.
The spokesman then highlighted that the SDF halted its progress against ISIS in Raqqa city so that it could conduct its Deir Ezzor operation.
This is in the attempt to capture Deir Ezzor’s vast oil and gas fields from ISIS before Syrian government forces, as reported by Fort Russ News yesterday.
