The U.S. believes the Russian mercenaries knew they were attacking a position held by the U.S. -backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) rebels, but didn't know there were U.S. advisers at the site.

US intelligence agencies declined to comment on the reports.

When the USA soldiers called in airstrikes to defend themselves, they had no idea they would end up killing dozens Russian civilians. But White's comments are the clearest to date that the US military was told there were no Russians in the attacking force. The company reportedly was involved in an attack on US -backed Kurdish fighters in Syria on February 7 and suffered significant losses in a USA counterstrike.

Russian Federation sends 2 stealth fighter jets to Syria

Russian Federation first deployed forces and aircraft to Syria in 2015, changing the dynamic as USA and coalition troops began their air campaign against the Islamic State a year earlier.

The Pentagon, in statements since the attack, has repeatedly said it is still investigating and has reached no conclusion on the identities of the attackers.

USA officials have told CBS News that Prigozhin was in contact with both Syrian and Russian officials in the days before and after the attack.

The intercepted communications show not only was Prigozhin personally involved in planning the attack, but he had discussed it with senior Syrian officials, including Minister of Presidential Affairs Mansour Fadlallah Azzam, the Post reported.

"We honour those for whom military service became a mission and the meaning of life - true patriots, who reliably guard the sovereignty and security of Russian Federation, and secure the peace of our citizens", Putin said at the award ceremony held at the Kremlin Palace on Friday, Xinhua reported.

Meanwhile, U.S. -led airstrikes in Syria continue, with 43 against ISIS targets in Syria and Iraq from Feb 9-15., according to U.S. Central Command.

According to the U.S. Treasury Department, Prigozhin owns a Russian company called Evro Polis, which, according to the Russian news site Fontanka, struck a deal in 2016 with the Syrian government to receive a 25 percent share of oil and natural gas produced on territory recaptured from the Islamic State group. "Russian Federation has many times countered foreign threats, infringements on its independence", Putin said, stressing that "our soldiers, sailors and officers have courageously defended the country, winning not only due to their operating proficiency, strength of arms, but also due to moral courage and great love for the Fatherland".
