US attack on Syrian troops not an accident, definitely intentional – Assad to AP (Video)
Syrian President Bashar Assad says that US airstrikes which killed 62 Syrian government troops were ‘intentional’ and they lasted for an hour. He added that the US ‘does not have the will’ to join Russia in fighting terrorists in Syria.
Speaking to the Associated Press in Damascus, the Syrian leader denied that the airstrikes carried out by the US near Deir ez-Zor on September 17 were an accident. Sixty-two Syrian soldiers were killed and over 100 were injured, according to the Syrian military. Assad said they were “intentionally” targeted.
