US airstrike killed 80 Syrian regime troops says Russia forgeting no one cares what side they’re on so long as the job is done

(CNN)The Syrian military says an airstrike by the US-led coalition hit a regime military position Saturday.

The US military said an airstrike may have struck Syrian soldiers, but the coalition thought it was hitting ISIS militants.

A statement from US Central Command said the coalition conferred with the Russian military before the strike.

“The coalition airstrike was halted immediately when coalition officials were informed by Russian officials that it was possible the personnel and vehicles targeted were part of the Syrian military,” CENTCOM said.
