The CNN TV channel claims that Moscow notified Washington twice on readiness to strike blow around At-Tanf in whom there are "dozens of American soldiers" the Photo: Alaa Al-Marjani/Reuters Russia last week informed Washington on possible operation around At-Tanf twice in Syria where forces of the western coalition are deployed. The CNN TV channel with reference to sources in the Pentagon reports about it. Allegedly, the Russian military have explained the preparing approach with existence in vicinities of the American base of terrorists. Interlocutors of the edition have told that the Ministry of Defence of the USA has warned Russia against fighting around At-Tanf. "We have clearly told them: you steer clear from there. We are ready to react" — CNN cites. The source in the Pentagon has emphasized that Washington doesn't seek for collision with the Syrian forces, but will use force in case of need to protect the military. The prospect of direct collision of the Russian and American forces is commented by the military observer of the website "Gazeta.ru", the colonel reserve officer Mikhail Hodarenok: — The blow to At-Tanfu can be struck only in case the USA the first strikes the objects located in the territory of Syria. They already declared determination for such blow more than once, chemical attack in Idlib has to become an occasion allegedly. In this case also our answer on objects in the territory of At-Tanf and near him is quite possible. To a word speaking, still on March 13 the chief of the General Staff has said that if the real threat of life of the serviceman is created if they suffer as a result of the American blows, then Russia will strike retaliations not only to rockets, but also to carriers. We will remember recent events. This indicative drowning of the Syrian frigate our SU-30SM fighter, actions in East Mediterranean, and such intensity that Americans have asked to stop working in air. Flights of our fighters MiG-30BM in the territory of the Caspian Sea which can reach objects in Syria. In this situation everything is possible. Everything depends, naturally, on prudence of political leaders on both sides. — If after all to assume that it will occur whether the risk of direct collision is high and what consequences can be? Whether to expect something similar to fight near Deir ez-Zor? — Quite perhaps. Nothing can be excluded as the American blows put us in an idiotic situation, I won't be afraid of these words. The Russian military personnel is practically in all Syrian divisions, beginning from a company and finishing with expeditious associations. The risk that they can suffer as a result of the American blows is high. In this case it is necessary to answer. All our reasonings are so far only area of guesses, hypotheses. At-Tanf is at southeast border of Syria, territories in a radius of 50 kilometers from the American base aren't controlled by government troops. During the Syrian conflict the Russian and American forces managed to avoid direct collisions. The most dangerous incident has occurred at the beginning of 2018 when proasadovsky forces
