A human rights group gathering information on the Syrian civil war says the area where the clash occurred has oil fields.
"The fact that such an issue remains virtually unnoticed serves as a testament to a persistent double standard with respect to terrorists", Nebenzia said.
The Observatory said 211 people have been killed in eastern Ghouta since Monday.
Reacting to the USA -led coalition's counterattack, a Russian senator called the move "an unprecedented act of aggression".
The foreign ministry sent two letters to the United Nations condemning the aggression as a war crime and arguing that it showed the "dirty USA intentions against Syria's sovereignty and territorial unity".
A direct Russian-U.S. confrontation is the biggest risk in this new, post-ISIL phase of the conflict in Syria. But that's been a challenging line for the U.S.to walk as human rights violations stack up against Assad and as his regime's forces threaten US troops and their allies.
"Pro-government Syrian fighters are confronting Daesh militants "who are under the protection" of the US-led coalition and the allied forces of the SDF", it added".
U.S. Central Command said the strikes were launched in self-defense after as many as 500 attackers began what appeared to be a coordinated assault on the headquarters of the U.S. -backed Syrian Democratic Forces.
The Russian Defense Ministry said Thursday the USA strike wounded 25 pro-government Syrian volunteers. Syrian government forces are active on the other side of the river, notes Associated Press.
Syria says rare U.S. strike an effort to support terrorism
US personnel have been advising and assisting the SDF, and some were embedded with them at the time of the attack in Deir el-Zour province.
Washington says it believed it was targeting an IS position there, but Damascus says the strike was "intentional". It said the dead includes a medic and at least three children and eight women.
The Syrian government has also been accused of using chemical weapons on a rebel-held town in Idlib province earlier this week.
Syrian state-run media says the US strikes killed and wounded dozens of tribal fighters, calling it a new effort "to support terrorism".
Kurdish and Arab fighters from the force have led the campaign to defeat IS in Syria, capturing the group's stronghold of Raqqa in October.
On Wednesday, the US-led alliance said it carried out airstrikes against pro-government forces after they launched an "unprovoked attack" on the headquarters of the US-backed SDF.
SANA called it an "aggression".
"Coalition officials were in regular communication with Russian counterparts before, during and after the thwarted (Pro-Regime Forces) attack", Veale said.
