Russia’s Defense Ministry denied bombing U.S.-backed Syrian opposition forces in a recent military operation near the Jordanian border, according to a statement released on Sunday.

The Kremlin response comes after U.S. and Russian military officials held a video conference to discuss Thursday’s strikes.
“The object which had suffered bombardment was located more than 300 km far from borders of territories claimed by the American party as ones controlled by the opposition joined the ceasefire regime,” the Russian Defense Ministry said in the statement.

And Russian forces “forewarned member states of the U.S.-led coalition about the ground targets to strike on,” the statement added.

In recent months, the Russian Defense Ministry has suggested “compiling a joint map with actual information about location of forces active in Syria,” according to the statement. “However, there has been no significant progress reached.”
