BEIRUT - The Syrian government said on Monday four warplanes from the US-led coalition had targeted a Syrian army camp in Deir al Zor province on Sunday, killing three soldiers and wounding 13 more, calling the incident an act of aggression.

The jets fired nine missiles at the camp on Sunday evening, Syria's foreign ministry said in a statement flashed on state television. It is the first publicly declared incident of its type since the United States and allied countries began bombing Islamic State in Syria more than a year ago.A monitoring group, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, earlier reported that jets likely to be from the coalition that is targeting Islamic State hit an army camp in Deir al-Zor province killing four Syrian army personnel.
