    September 16, 2017, 11:00 PM (IDT)

    The Pentagon and US allies in Syria accused Russian jets of Saturday “impacting a location known to the Russians to contain [US-backed] Syrian Democratic Forces and coalition advisers”east of the Euphrates River in Syria's Deir Ez Zour province.. The Kremlin denied the allegation.

    "Several SDF fighters were wounded," the statementadded. None of the advisers were injured.

    But Russia's military spokesman denied Moscow targeted the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Arab and Kurdish fighters supported by Washington. "This is not possible. Why would we bomb them?" military spokesman Igor Konashenkov said.
    DEBKAfile: The alleged attack took place shortly after Syrian and Hizballah forces crossed the Euphrates with Russian air cover and assistance, in defiance of a coalition warning. See DEBKAfile top story.

    September 17, 2017, 5:34 PM (IDT)

    The British government Sunday restored to “severe” the terror threat level that was raised to “critical,” its highest, Saturday, the day after a terrorist bomb blew up a Tube train drawing into the London station of Parson’s Green injuring 30 people. Also Sunday, anti-terror police raided a second house in Stanwell near Heathrow airport. Since ISIS claimed the attack, DEBKAfile’s counterterrorism sources report that Scotland Yard and MI5 suspect a terrorist network is at work in the country, which struck earlier this month in Manchester and has since gone into action inthe Greater London area. They have deduced that its cells are interconnected Lego-style. The fact that only two suspects have been rounded up since the Friday attack indicates that the investigation is still groping in the dark.

    A 21-year old man was arrested at Hounslow Saturday in connection with a terrorist bombing on a London Tube train which left 29 commuters injured and was claimed by the Islamic State. The first suspect detained was an 18-year old who was picked up near Dover Port.

    It was noted in Jerusalem that the Egyptian government has refrained from briefing Israel on the deals its officials have negotiated with the extremist Palestinian group, as through the future of the Gaza Strip is not its concern.
