Syria Moscow says USA coalition strikes on govt forces 'unacceptable'

But Syria's opposition delegation to Geneva lauded the airstrike, saying it helps curb Iran's influence in his country.

The Syrian government, which has launched an offensive in the country's south backed by allied militias such as Iranian paramilitaries and the Lebanese Hezbollah group, has vowed to reach the border area with Iraq.

"Any military actions that lead to a deterioration in the situation in Syria obviously impact the political process", he said.

The coalition said "apparent" Russian attempts to stop pro-Assad forces from moving toward Tanf, as well as warning shots and a show of force, had failed.

The claim that Russian Federation was warned and was still unable to stop the convoy will call into question how much influence their commanders have over Assad and Iranian forces in parts of Syria.

"All this, of course, is taking place [the United States coalition's strike on Syrian pro-government forces] amid growing calls from Washington and a number of other Western capitals to stop all contacts with Bashar Assad".

Starmer will also vow to guarantee the rights of European Union nationals if Jeremy Corbyn wins the upcoming general election. Cabinet Office spokesman Lord Young rejected the idea of lowering the voting age and said it will stay at 18.

The US military launched the attack against a convoy of the Syrian military heading towards the border near Jordan where Daesh terrorists are based.

US-led coalition aircraft on Thursday struck a convoy of pro-Syrian regime forces that were "advancing well inside an established de-confliction zone" in southern Syria.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said the U.S. would defend its troops in case of "aggressive" steps against them.

"This distracts us from the Syrian settlement and the major goal of this settlement - preventing the seizure of Syria and other parts of the Middle East by terrorists", Lavrov said. Syrian television did not give the number of dead or injured.

The military media outlet added that the Americans had asked the Russian Federation to pressure the Syrian army to stay 15 kilometers (9 miles) away from their "illegitimate bases in Tanf".

In September past year, USA airstrikes on Syrian army positions near the Dayr al-Zawr military airport also killed over 80 soldiers. "And that is a coalition element made up of more than just USA troops, and so we will defend ourselves (if) people take aggressive steps against us".
