The Arabic-language website of Reuters quoted a US official as reporting that an MQ-9 drone of the US forces destroyed a Russia-made T-72 tank of the Syrian Army in Deir Ezzur on Sunday.
Also, the US army announced that it destroyed a tank that had entered the fire range of the US-backed militants.
In the meantime, a US official, who requested anonymity, disclosed that at least two pro-Syrian government forces were killed in that attack.
The drone attack on the Syrian tank was the second US attack on Damascus forces in last week.
The US-led coalition carried out several airstrikes on Syrian forces in Deir Ezzur province on Thursday.
The US military claimed that so-called anti-ISIL coalition forces repelled a threatening Syrian Army-led attack consisting of five hundred troops – backed by artillery, tanks, multiple-launch rocket systems and mortars – late on Wednesday and early on Thursday against positions of Arab and Kurdish militias at energy fields near the town of Khasham on the Eastern bank of the Euphrates River in Deir Ezzur province.
According to reports, more than 100 pro-government forces were killed in the airstrikes carried out by the US-led coalition in Syria’s Deir Ezzur.
