100 people is a lot to kill, particularly since the USA supposedly isn't at war with Syria.
The Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it had written to the United Nations, demanding global condemnation.
US-backed Kurdish-led forces have been fighting for control of Deir el-Zour with rival Russian-backed Syrian troops that are reinforced by Iranian-supported militias.
Under global law, a nation may use force on another nation's soil under two circumstances: approval from the UN Security Council (UNSC) or self-defense. The Pentagon boss also dismissed any suggestion that Russian Federation, the Syrian government's most powerful military ally, had any control over the mysterious attacking force. The area was taken from ISIS by the SDF last September, when a rapid advance south supported by coalition air power brought much of the oil-rich countryside east of the Euphrates under SDF control.
Regime forces were likely attempting to take an oilfield near Khusham.

I believe we'll see a little bit more snow to the north during the commute, so expect delays on your way home Friday . Schools in metro Detroit are closed Friday and snow emergencies were declared in six southeastern MI counties.
The death toll mounted steadily throughout Thursday, with the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights giving 75 civilians dead by the evening. "But we also know that chemical weapons use is enabled by Russian Federation". A spokesman for the US coalition said Russian Federation told the coalition that it was not involved in the attack on the SDF headquarters.
The United States said the worldwide coalition carried out air strikes against pro-government fighters on Wednesday to defend its allies in Deir Ezzor.

Before the war, the Omar oil field was producing 30,000 barrels of oil per day, while the Conoco gas field was producing 13m cubic metres of gas per day.

The Russian government has since said there was an attack and those Syrian regime militias were actually going after ISIS fighters when the US hit them.
Mr Assad is backed by Russian Federation, as well as Shia militia groups themselves backed by Iran, while the United States is supporting the Kurdish SDF forces who have been a crucial ally in battling Isis - the major aim in Syria for the administration of President Donald Trump.
Colonel Veale said they suspect the Syrian pro-government forces were trying to seize terrain from the US-backed forces liberated from IS militants previous year, including major oil fields in the area.
