Russia threatens to attack U.S forces in Syria

- Russia warns it will attack US forces position if provoked.

- Claims the US has already attacked them twice in the past.

Russian military forces fighting in Syria have issued a stern warning to their American counterparts in the country that they would not hesitate to fire on them if provoked.

Russia on Thursday stated that it would target areas in Syria
where U.S. special forces and U.S.-backed militia were operating if its own forces came under fire from them, something it said had already happened twice

The Russian Defence Ministry said the SDF had taken up positions on the eastern banks of the Euphrates with U.S. special forces, and had twice opened fire with mortars and artillery on Syrian troops who were working alongside Russian special forces.

“A representative of the U.S. military command in Al Udeid (the U.S. operations center in Qatar) was told in no uncertain terms that any attempts to open fire from areas where SDF fighters are located would be quickly shut down,” Major-General Igor Konashenkov said in a statement.

“Fire points in those areas will be immediately suppressed with all military means.”
