US-led forces hit convoy in Syria

Coalition warplanes have bombed military vehicles moving into a protected area near a garrison in Syria, US officials said. The pro-regime convoy allegedly included Syrian army troops and militants from Iran.

The convoy "posed a threat" to the US forces and their allies at the Tanf base in south Syria, US defense officials said on Thursday. The pro-regime troops had entered "the established de-confliction zone" without authorization and failed to respond to warnings, they added.
The coalition also tried to contact the Russian command in Syria, which is allied with Damascus, before deploying jets to target the head of the convoy.

"This action was taken after apparent Russian attempts to dissuade Syrian pro-regime movement south [] were unsuccessful, a coalition aircraft show of force, and the firing of warning shots," the US-led command said in a statement.
A tank and a bulldozer were hit in the bombing, military sources told Reuters.
