Beirut: A US-backed force bat­tling the ISIS in east­ern Syria ac­cused the regime and Rus­sian war­planes on Satur­day of bomb­ing its fight­ers. It marked the first time the Syr­ian Demo­cratic Forces, an al­liance of Arab and Kur­dish fight­ers, have said they have been hit by Rus­sia. The SDF and Rus­sian­backed Syr­ian gov­ern­ment forces are con­duct­ing par­al­lel but sep­a­rate of­fen­sives against ISIS in the strate­gic and oil-rich east­ern prov­ince of Deir Ez­zor.
