3rd December 2018

Damascus: Syria's state news agency says the US-led coalition has fired several missiles at Syrian army positions in the country's east, causing material damage.

The SANA report says the positions targeted on Sunday night, local time, are located in the Ghorab Mountains south of the eastern town of Sukhna.

There has been no immediate confirmation from the US-led coalition.

Such attacks by the US-led coalition against Syrian troops have been rare. In 2016, its warplanes bombed Syrian army positions in the eastern city of Deir el-Zour and killed dozens of soldiers.
