Pro-Syrian Forces Attempt Strike on US Coalition?
Pro-Syrian forces attempt strike on US Coalition according to US official. Regardless of the accusation it is the third time in a week that the US coalition has struck and destroyed pro-Syrian Forces in the region. Iran and Hezbollah have threatened to retaliate against the US Coalition. The attacks seems to be a way to try and draw out Iran and Syrian Forces to justify an battle to destroy both Damascus and Iran.

BREAKING: Surprise! US Attacks Syrian Army in Syria yet Again
8 June 2017
CNN has broken the news that the US has struck Syrian forces in southern Syria, yet again! (Pentagon confirmed the story half an hour later.)
FIRST ON CNN-Officials: US-led coalition conducted a 3rd strike Thursday against pro-regime forces in deconfliciton zone near At Tanf, Syria
CNN with the expected pro-war line that the forces struck are "Iranian-backed forces" obscuring the fact these are legal Syrian forces being targeted by a foreign power in their own country.
We have just learned that all three fighters who were killed in the US strike on Tuesday were Syrians. They were Syrian Shia militia fighters which would have made them part of Syria's National Defence Forces.
The NDF, along with the regular army, forms Syria's armed forces. It unites all Syrian pro-government militias into a decentralized but official and lawful national guard force. Its fighters are salaried by the government just as a US guardsman or a state militia would be.
UPDATE -- US officials told CNN US struck a convoy of three technicals (pick-ups with heavy weapons mounted in the back) and destroyed two of them. Supposedly the strike took place some 40 kilometers from the US base at al-Tanf, Syria.

UPDATE 2 -- It is now also claimed the US shot down a drone that supposedly fired on US soldiers in southern Syria:
The drone was brought down near the second US base in the south, at al-Zaqaf, some 70 kilometers to the east of al-Tanf.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (00:58 A.M.) – As Al-Masdar News reported on Thursday, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) backed by allied forces, managed to regain control of the strategic Dakwah hilltop after a round of fierce clashes with the US-backed and FSA-affiliated rebel factions.
Located some 60 km to the east of Damascus at a height of 920 meters, the Dakwa hilltop served as a major bastion for the Islamic State (ISIS), but then was taken over by FSA-affiliated factions, when ISIS jihadists were forced to withdraw at the beginning of the year.

Despite repeated warnings and several US air raids against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in south-east Syria, the government forces keep up their offensive efforts and score ever more gains in the desert area both against the Islamic State and groups in allegiance with the Free Syrian Army (FSA).
The footage below was published by the Syrian Ministry of Defence and shows the SAA targeting and storming FSA held positions on the hill with mechanized troops and infantry charging against the enemy lines.
