According to these sources, in a letter addressed to the United Nations, with a copy to its Security Council, the Syrian Foreign Ministry denounced that Washington's new aggression represents a war crime against humanity.

"We demand [that the global community] condemn this massacre and hold the coalition responsible for it", Syrian state news agency (SANA) reported, citing a letter sent by the foreign ministry to the UN.

According to Liveuamap, a site that maps the conflict in Syria, the town of Khusham near Deir ez-Zor is actually held by the Syrian regime while the nearby Conoco-Tabiya gas plant is several kilometers from the line that separates the SDF from the regime.
"After 20 to 30 artillery and tank rounds landed within 500 meters of the SDF headquarters location, Syrian Democratic Forces supported by the Coalition targeted the aggressors with a combination of air and artillery strikes", the statement said. No US forces were injured during the attack according to reports from multiple news outlets.
