"We recall" - Just so happened US bombed Syrian soldiers when elite troops showed up

The planned arrival of those elite troops wasn't a secret; I read about it some days ago.  

SYRIAN ARMY SEIZES MOST OF TURDAH MOUNTAIN FROM ISIS DESPITE US AIR STRIKES AGAINST GOVERNMENT FORCES

The Syrian army and the National Defense Forces, supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces, have seized most of Turdah mountain south of the strategic city of Deir Ezzor from the ISIS terrorist group.
The pro-government forces were able to do this despite ‘accidental’ air strikes of the US-led coalition air power against the Syrian army in the area. The US-led air power’s actions resulted in singificant causalties among the Syrian army: 62 soldiers were killed and about 100 injured. The Pentagon denied that the air strikes were amied on the Syrian army. However, some experts suggest that this was not be a common mistake.
We recall, according to pro-government sources, some 1000 soldiers of the Syrian Republican Guard (an elite formation of the Syrian army) had arrived at Deir Ezzor in order to support operations against ISIS in the area prior to the US-led air strikes.

Comments:
The US says they were observing the troops they bombed for, what?, five days before. If this elite unit is the one struck it would have characteristic uniforms, vehicles, and weaponry. Their radio communications would have been on government frequencies.

The US had to work at not knowing these were Syrian regulars.

This beyond sad and yet another lie (mistake) that characterizes our illegal involvement there.
