Moscow calls on the US -led global coalition fighting against the Islamic State terrorist group to be more careful when planning airstrikes on extremists in Syria to avoid deaths among the civilians, Foreign Ministry's Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said, TASS reports.

At least 17 pro-Syria militants were killed in southeast Syria by US-led anti-ISIS coalition airstrikes, according to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

The footage of Iran using a drone to track US military assets was released on Wednesday, just a day before the strike on American-backed forces.

The statement from the "allies of Syria" said attacks on U.S. forces could be carried out with "different missile and military systems, in the light of the deployment of American forces in the region".

Following the expulsion of the so-called Islamic State from a corner of south-eastern Syria, tensions have been rising between the Iranian Regime and the United States over a small patch of highway, which contains a USA military garrison and a border crossing.

The SOHR report confirmed reports on Tuesday from U.S.

Earlier this week the USA bombed similar troops inside the protected zone, after those forces came under attack by another unaffiliated group of Syrian rebels. "Following the second US strike on them a couple of days ago, Hezbollah's war media has made direct threats to target USA and US -backed forces in Syria and 'its neighborhood, '" Badran said.

In recent weeks, however, pro-Syrian government forces - composed mostly of Iranian backed Shiite militias - have steadily encroached on the small 200-strong garrison.

"Coalition forces are oriented on ISIS in the Euphrates River Valley", the statement said.

US-backed rebels took Tanf from Islamic State past year, and regional intelligence sources say they mean to use it as a launchpad to capture Bukamal, a town on Syria's border with Iraq and an important militant supply route.

Iran is a chief backer of Hezbollah and the Syrian government and is deeply involved in the Syrian civil war.

"We really do depend upon the Russians through our de-confliction military channels.to help work these things out, and so we hope obviously that will not happen again", he said.

A United States defense official said that, for now, this was a proportional response.

Two artillery pieces and an antiaircraft weapon were destroyed, the statement said, and a tank damaged.

Although the Hashd is in a reluctant alliance with the coalition against Islamic State, the USA views these factions as little more than Iranian proxies.

The US-led coalition had carried out a similar strike on a Syrian military convoy near At-Tanf last month.

The coalition has established a "de-confliction" zone, extending 55 kilometers (34 miles) from the garrison, in which pro-regime and Russian forces are not supposed to operate. "Coalition forces are oriented on ISIS in the Euphrates River Valley".
