WASHINGTON, December 7. /TASS/. The US-led coalition fighting against the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group has rejected reports that its planes delivered strikes on vehicles or personnel in Syria on Sunday.
"We conducted four strikes in theDeir ez-Zor province yesterday, all against oil well heads. Our strikes were approximately 55 kilometers south east of Ayyash. We did not strike any vehicles or personnel targets in this area," the spokesman said.
The spokesman said there is no indication that any Syrian soldiers were near the strikes.
The coalition acts in line with the strict procedures and protocols during the targeting process and all the allegations of potential collateral damage are checked thoroughly, he said.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry said earlier in the day four planes of the US-led coalition launched nine missiles against Syrian government army positions in Deir ez-Zor province in the east of the country on Sunday. Three servicemen were killed and thirteen others were injured.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry demanded the UN Security Council should take urgent measures to prevent such attacks in the future.
