US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Tuesday (June 13) that recent strikes against pro-Assad regime militias in the past few weeks had been in self-defense and the United States would take all measures to protect its forces in Syria.

Last week the United States shot down a pro-Assad drone that fired toward US-led coalition forces in Syria, but "hit dirt" and caused no injuries. On the same day, the US hit two pro-Assad pick up trucks near the southern town of At Tanf.

Russia said on Saturday (June 10) it had told the United States it was unacceptable for Washington to strike pro-Assad militias in Syria.
