The U.S.-led coalition fighting the Islamic State group says it hit pro-Syrian government forces near the border with Jordan that “posed a threat” to U.S. forces and rebel groups in the area.

The coalition statement late on Thursday says the coalition hit the pro-Syrian government forces after warning shots, a show of force and apparent Russian attempts failed to dissuade those troops from moving into the “de-conflicted area.”
