Russian airstrikes targeted the base of U.S.-backed Syrian fighters near the Jordanian border earlier this week, according to U.S. defense officials, prompting the most aggressive response from the Pentagon since Russia began its air campaign over Syria last year.
New images released Friday by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a group that has monitored the conflict since its start, reportedly shows the aftermath of the strikes on the base at Al-Tanf, a small town near the borders of Iraq, Syria and Jordan.

WNU Editor: The Americans were caught off-guard by this Russian bombing run on their Syrian allies, and are responding according (see links below).
