I am again receiving reports of additional aerial bombardment of Syria taking place RIGHT NOW (10:47 AM EDT). Specifically, a place called al-Mayadin in eastern Syria is reportedly being heavily bombed.
These local reports are claiming the aircraft doing the bombing are AMERICAN but this is **NOT** confirmed. All lines into the Pentagon Press Office are ringing "busy."
I am reaching out to my former colleagues in the Intelligence Community for info.
Updates to follow. Check back.

No further reports from any source(s). Speculation the plane(s) were from Turkey, but no confirmation. Attack is over. Nothing further for this.
