“Warplanes from the American coalition hit one of the Syrian army’s positions… near the Deir Ezzor airport,” the statement carried by state media said.
It said the raid was carried out at 5:00pm local time (1400 GMT) and led to an unspecified number of “casualties”.
Regime ally Russia said 62 Syrian soldiers were killed and at least 100 more wounded in strikes by “warplanes from the international anti-jihadist coalition”.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said at least 83 soldiers were killed in the raids on Jabal Therdeh, southwest of the Deir Ezzor airport, updating an earlier toll of 30 killed.
