If the report of airstrikes against the SDF this time around are true, it would mark the second time in a week that the Russians hit the USA -backed militia.

Asapov, RT reported, was described as one of the senior Russian military advisers in Syria.

"The death of the Russian commander is the price, the bloody price for the two-faced American policy in Syria", Ryabkov, was quoted by state-run RIA Novosti and other news agencies as saying.

The SDF, bolstered by US airstrikes and Special Operations forces, has advanced on Deir al-Zour from the north.

USA -backed forces in eastern Syria say Russian Federation bombed their positions on Monday in a major natural gas field they recently captured from Islamic State militants.

U.S. and Russian generals held a face-to-face meeting this week in an effort to avoid accidental clashes as both sides fight to retake what is left of Islamic State's territory in Syria, U.S. military officials said on Thursday.

"They had a face-to-face discussion, laid down maps and graphics", Army Colonel Ryan Dillon, a Baghdad-based spokesman for the United States-led coalition, said at a briefing, adding it appeared to be the first meeting of its kind.

U.S. special forces' units have been providing fluid movement of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) units through the positions of the Islamic State (IS, outlawed in Russia), the Russian Defense Ministry wrote on Facebook on Sunday.

And the governor said he was "very grateful" to President Donald Trump for responding Puerto Rico's petition for help. Among the provisions: "The Defense Logistics Agency is sending 124,000 gallons of diesel fuel to Puerto Rico ".

A USA spokesman told Military.com that commanders met in an undisclosed location to make sure "we don't fire upon one another" when battling the Islamic State terrorist group. The US troops do not face any “resistance from the ISIS militants, ” while their positions have no screening patrol, which could indicate that they “feel absolutely safe” in the area, the ministry said.

For the government, such fields represent revenue and power, allowing it to reassert control in the face of years of armed rebellion.

Russian Federation and Syrian government forces are waging an offensive against ISIS in Deir Ez-Zor province.

The western bank of the Euphrates that divides in two Deir-Ezzor, was recovered by Syrian troops, with the support of the Air Force and special commands from Russian Federation, while in the Eastern part the EDS and U.S. officials are located.

Assad regime, backed by its ally Russian Federation, is carrying out its own campaign against Daesh in Deir el-Zour, largely on the western side of the Euphrates, including in provincial capital Deir el-Zour city.

But he was "mortally wounded" after a mortar strike was carried out by ISIS on Sunday.

A spokesman for the US-led coalition, Colonel Ryan Dillon, said rounds had hit in the area around the SDF but he could not confirm they were fired by Russian Federation.
