Russian warplanes reportedly bombed a secret military base in Syria used by elite American and British forces.

The Russian strike on the CIA-linked site was part of a campaign by Russia to pressure the White House to agree to closer cooperation in the Syrian skies, U.S. military and intelligence officials said.

The Interfax News Agency in Moscow and the Wall Street Journal reported  the attacks took place at the base, located along the border between Syria and Jordan. The Journal reported that about 20 British troops who had been temporarily stationed at the base had left it about 24 hours before the Russian attacks.

Western Journalism reports that Interfax quoted its sources as saying the attacks took place because the U.S. did not accede to Russian demands that it be provided with information on American and British activities in areas where Syrian moderates were located.

In the first attack, the Russian plane dropped a cluster bomb, American officials said. Although the U.S. central command air operations center in Qatar then called Russia’s air campaign headquarters in Latakia, Syria, to avert any future attacks and tell them the base shouldn’t be attacked, it was attacked again about 90 minutes later.

Although the U.S. tried to reach Russian pilots on frequencies both sides agreed to use in emergencies, the Russian pilots did not answer. At least four rebels died in the attacks.

According to the report in the Wall Street Journal, the Russians gave U.S. officials multiple explanations for their attack.

Russian officials initially told the Pentagon that the military thought it was an Islamic State facility, but U.S. officials rejected the notion because of what they described as a unique way the base was fortified, The Journal reported.

Russians then said that the Jordanians had given them the go-ahead to strike the base, but the U.S. double-checked and said no such authorization was given. Later, Russia told the U.S. that their headquarters wasn’t in position to call off the strike because the U.S. didn’t provide them with the proper coordinates of the base.
