The U.S. military says a coalition airstrike that hit Syria early Saturday was meant for ISIS fighters — but it might have hit Syrian regime soldiers instead.
Syria's military says at least 62 soldiers were killed while fighting ISIS troops near the city of Deir ez-Zor. And Russia, an ally of Syria, claims the U.S.-led airstrike allowed ISIS forces to advance.
