Russia's Foreign Ministry said on Sunday that U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had phoned Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Saturday to discuss the Syria situation and how the "anti-terrorism" battle on the ground was playing out.

The call occurred after U.S.-backed militias in Syria said they had come under attack on Saturday from Russian jets and Syrian regime forces in Deir al-Zor province, a flashpoint in an increasingly complex battlefield.

The Russian Foreign Ministry did not say in its statement about the Lavrov-Tillerson call if the two men had discussed that allegation and how Moscow had responded if they had.
