"We've seen those Syrian reports but we did not conduct any strikes in that part of Deir Ezzor yesterday. So we see no evidence," said Colonel Steve Warren, spokesman for the coalition.
He said the coalition's only strikes in Deir Ezzor on Sunday were some 55 kilometres (34 miles) away from the area where the troops were allegedly killed.
