US -led coalition forces retaliated by launching airstrikes against the troops loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime, according to the Defense Department. They spoke on condition of anonymity as details are still emerging on the attack.

The U.S. -led coalition fighting Islamic State said on Wednesday it carried out air strikes against "Syrian pro-regime forces" that carried out an unprovoked attack on Syrian Democratic Forces' headquarters.

SDF and government forces control areas on either side of the River Euphrates in Deir al-Zour province. The US official said that US forces in the region counterattacked using artillery and aircraft.

The US-led coalition had previously alerted Russian officials about the presence of SDF forces in nearby Khusham after seeing a slow build-up of pro-government forces during the last week.

One Syrian rebel soldier was wounded but no US forces were killed or wounded, according to NPR's Tom Bowman, who is reporting from elsewhere in Syria.

The heavy death toll underscored the large size of the attack, which the US official said included about 500 opposing forces, backed by artillery, tanks, multiple-launch rocket systems and mortars.

The forces were "likely seeking to seize oilfields in Khusham that had been a major source of revenue for Daesh from 2014 to 2017". But the Trump administration's hope for a lessening of hostilities in Syria's larger civil war has not materialized so far, as Turkish, Russian, Iranian and other forces are brought into ever closer proximity as they vie to determine control of and pursue their own long-term interests in Syria.

USA officials say about 500 pro-Assad regime forces participated in the attack on the coalition location, using heavy artillery, T-54 and T-72 main battle tanks and mortar fire.

Syrian state news agency SANA, citing an army statement said its air defence units "destroyed most of" the Israeli missiles.

A reporter for the state TV station Ikhbariya said there were "dozens of dead and wounded" as a result of the attacks.

The attack occurred eight kilometers east of the "agreed-upon Euphrates River de-confliction line".

According to the US Central Command, coalition advisers were also present at the site of the attack late on Tuesday.
