(Iraq Now News)-

At least one Syrian soldier was killed and seven others wounded in a US-led coalition strike against ISIS in Syria on Thursday, Arabiya News cited the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights on Friday.The Britain-based monitor reported “explosions” in the desert around 50 kilometres (30 miles) from Palmyra, the famed ancient city that ISIS overran twice in Syria’s war.“The position targeted is only 20 kilometres from the region of al-Tanaf,” said the group’s director Rami Abdel Rahman, adding that the toll could rise as many of the wounded were in a “serious condition”.The Pentagon denied any strike had occurred and that while there was a brief clash, there had been no casualties.Pentagon spokesman Major Adrian Rankine-Galloway told AFP that fighters from the US-backed Syrian rebel group Maghawir al-Thawra and coalition advisors “within the de-confliction zone near al-Tanaf were engaged by an unidentified hostile force located just outside the de-confliction zone”.
