Recently, Russian military officials took their case one step further by releasing satellite images which they believe show the uncontested mobility and stationing of U.S. special forces throughout and within ISIS-held territory despite being within the visual presence of jihadist militants.

Earlier on Tuesday, the ministry denied another report that it had struck civilian settlements in Syria's northwestern province of Idlib.

Speaking from the Hemeimeem air base in the Syrian province of Latakia, Lapin said Syrian government troops made significant advances over the past month, bringing them closer to ending the "Islamic State" (IS) militant group's presence in the country.

Russian military personnel have built a bridge across the Euphrates River, not far from the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor, in less than 48 hours despite coming under constant shelling, a Ministry of Defense official said.

"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. U.S./Coalition has one objective: "defeat of ISIS", the State Department spokeswoman said on Twitter, using another acronym for Islamic State.

According to the Daily Beast , he was captured; according to spokespeople for the USA military, he "surrendered". The US citizen, who's name is not know, is not the first American to be caught while fighting with IS.

We review the key developments in Syria, including the SDF accusing Russia of once again attacking its positions in Deir Ezzor, Russian warplanes killing 37 in Idlib and Moscow blaming USA policy in Syria for the death of a Russian military official in Deir Ezzor.

Russia's General Staff said last week that about 850 militants were killed as the Syrian forces, backed by Russian warplanes, repelled an attack by militants in a "de-escalation zone" in the Syrian province of Idlib.

"Unmanned aerial vehicles were used".

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu also criticised Russia on Monday for the same reason, saying that recent Russian bombing in Idlib had killed civilians and moderate rebels and that this would be discussed with Russian President Vladimir Putin when he visited Turkey this week.

SDF fighters captured Conoco field, Syria's largest, from IS militants on Saturday.
