More than 100 Pro-government Fighters were Killed in Air Strikes in Syria

Meanwhile, the United States quickly tried to put down fears that the nation could be involved in a larger conflict in Syria. Last night, it wasn't just proxy forces but, so it is reported, real live Americans, Russians and Iranians who came to blows in the desert.

But experts fear that western interest in the conflict has "waned considerably" since the crushing defeat of ISIS.

Syria's foreign ministry wrote a letter to the Security Council Thursday calling for worldwide condemnation.

"And sadly without the help of the West it will not be possible for peace to be reached in Syria".

"We are there to fight ISIS".

Hassan says he had intelligence reports that the pro-regime attack was coming. The Pentagon estimated that more than 100 were killed. "Why they chose to initiate this attack, you'll have to ask them".

Numerous victims were left frothing at the mouth as they gasped for air having ingested the deadly gas - believed to be sarin. The pro-regime forces mounted their attack this week, he says, because "the regime thinks we are weak", as the SDF has moved fighters north to fight a Turkish attack on the Kurdish region called Afrin.

A USA military airstrike has killed over 100 Pro-regime soldiers fighting for the Assad government, against anti-Assad rebels. Chlorine has been one of the regime's frequently used methods to gain control in the civil war. The head of the Britain-based monitoring group, Rami Abdel Rahman, said the aim of the attack appeared to be the capture of a key oil field and a major gas plant in an SDF-held area.

"It was self-defense. Obviously, we are not getting engaged in the Syrian civil war", Mattis said. However, the USA has made it clear that it does not intend to leave the area. Assad's troops did not fair as well, with more than 100 reported dead or injured.

He explained that the US-led coalition had picked up on the movements of pro-regime forces in the area a few days before, but they were not immediately hostile.

The larger picture is that for the U.S. and pro-western groups such as the Kurdish YPG, those parts of northern Syria beyond the regime's control are a powerful negotiating tool when the future of Syria comes to be discussed, not least because they contain much of Syria's oil. "Our forces have the inherent right to self-defense", she said.

As the US fits neither, formally speaking, they aren't a side in the Syrian Civil War (though the US Department of Defense acknowledged at the end of past year that there were in fact thousands of US military personnel in the country) and so their diplomats have not been part of any recent peace talks, except in their capacity as representatives of the UNSC.

Among them were at least 58 children, the Observatory said.

Reuters reported that regime forces were likely trying to take an oilfield near Khusham, citing a United States official.

Putin is seen as the foreign leader with the most influence over Assad.

The Pentagon said it had been in constant with Russian Federation, raising concerns about a build-up of forces beside the SDF headquarters. "They [the Russians] don't accept our offer and denied, said there's nothing happening", Hassan said through an interpreter. And now with the Syrian militia attack farther south, the Kurdish commanders are sending their reserve forces down to that base to shore up defenses.

Assad has been accused of escalating chemical attacks on his own people in recent weeks.

The Syrian pro-government forces that were hit had allegedly tried to take ground east of the River Euphrates, captured from IS by the SDF. It also continues to supply the SDF with weapons.
