In response to what the United States called an "unprovoked attack," US airstrikes reportedly killed around 100 people in Syria earlier this month, with reports from Russian media claiming that Russian military contractors may have been among those killed. According to Russian media, Russian private contractors and pro-government forces advanced on oil fields in the eastern Deir el-Zour province and were targeted by US forces. While Pentagon spokesperson Dana White said in a statement that the attack came after, "Pro-regime forces initiated what appeared to be a coordinated attack on Syrian Democratic Forces east of the Euphrates river." The United States has trained, equipped, and backed the SDF for years. The Pentagon claimed that the attack wounded only one SDF soldier, and that the US-led coalition's return fire killed around 100 attackers in self-defense.
