American General Richard CoE, responsible for investigating the situation with the shelling of Syrian forces at Deir ez-Zor on September 17, said that the airstrike of the coalition were suffered in connection with the “human factor” and was “inadvertent mistake” of the US Armed forces, reported TASS.


“I also found that the intention to strike at Syrian forces were not. We came to the conclusion that the main factor (the incident), the main cause was the “human factor”, – said the General.


In addition, he said that Russia received information about the intention to commit an airstrike in the vicinity of Deir ez-Zor contained errors. The representative of the U.S. armed forces mistakenly said that the air strikes would be dealt 9 km South of the airport of the city, while the attack was being planned in 9 km South of the city, that is to the North of the airfield.
