"It became apparent that the strikes were falling on some of the Syrian Arab Coalition positions and some quick calls were made to our deconfliction channels and the Russians acknowledged and stopped - stopped bombing there". The liberation of Bab also means Turkey now has secured its border from ISIS, the general noted.
"Not a single air strike on the regions specified by the USA side was conducted by Russian or Syrian air forces", the statement added. He declined to say how numerous US -backed Syrian fighters were killed or wounded.
Russian Federation denied responsibility, saying in a written statement that it had adhered to USA guidance on avoiding friendly forces in that area. "The coalition is committed to the security of Turkey and will continue to work in close coordination with partner forces and allies to deliver a lasting defeat to ISIS, which remains the greatest terrorist threat to the region and the world", he added.
The bombing reveals just how complicated it is for multiple countries to operate in very tight spaces, be they on the ground or above it. Nearly a year later, the Syrian army managed to liberate the city, however, in December 2016, the jihadists regained control over the city for the second time and destroyed part of its cultural property. Last month, they mistakenly bombed Turkish soldiers near the city, killing three.
