The Syrian army – liberating the Deir ez-Zor region from terrorists – is facing strong resistance and massive fire from areas where armed opposition groups and US forces are stationed, according to the Russian Defense Ministry, and there was a close call this past Saturday. Syrian troops battling the Islamic state crossed the eastern bank of the Euphrates river injuring several US fighters with an air-strike.

Michael Maloof, former Pentagon official, says the US has interest in rich oil fields in the area that’s why the US army is trying to strongly determine its presence in the area.
