Pentagon was informed about area of Russia's military op in Deir ez-Zor in advance - Moscow | 17 Sept 2017 | The Russian Defense Ministry has denied Pentagon allegations that it bombed US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces near Deir ez-Zor. The Russian military said that its US partners were informed about the area of the operation beforehand. "To avoid unnecessary escalation, the command of the Russian troops in Syria revealed the boundaries of the military operation in Deir ez-Zor to the American partners through the existing communication channel," the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement on Sunday. The chief of Russia’s general staff, General Valery Gerasimov, has reportedly spent an hour on the phone discussing the matter with his US counterpart, General Joseph Dunford.
