"The strikes near the Deir Ezzor airport killed between 30 and 35 Syrian army soldiers, but we could not identify which warplanes carried them out," said Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman.

The Russian and Syrian militaries have both accused the US-led coalition of carrying out the strikes which the Russian army said left 60 Syrian soldiers dead.
