It should be obvious this statement was made in regard to the second attack by the US on SAA allies near the border at Tanf-
Covered yesterday: US Airstrikes Hit SAA Allies, Again: US Backed Kurds Move on Raqqa

The US, in this locale, is protecting their ISIS proxies, impeding Syria from clearing terrorists out of their nation, and making it impossible to secure the border thereby disallowing the free passage to terrorists the US and their Kurdish allies have been allowing.
Russia considers the US-led coalition airstrike against pro-Damascus fighters in Syria an act of aggression and rejects the justification for the attack issued by the Pentagon, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.The Tuesday airstrike near the town of At Tanf in eastern Syria “was an aggressive act, that violated the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic and – deliberately or not – targeted the forces which are most effective in fighting terrorists on the ground,” the minister said on Wednesday.
The Pentagon justified the attack by saying that the pro-government forces “advanced inside the well-established deconfliction [sic] zone in southern Syria.”
Lavrov rejected that reasoning, saying that he is not familiar with the term.
“I don’t know anything about such zones. This must be some territory, which the coalition unilaterally declared [deconfliction zones] and where it probably believes to have a sole right to take action. We cannot recognize such zones,” he said.
Lavrov said Russia, Turkey and Iran have signed a deal, which has been endorsed by the UN Security Council, to establish so-called “de-escalation zones” in several parts of Syria. Damascus agreed to this approach and the exact borders and mechanisms for observing a truce inside those zones are currently being negotiated.
Which means, obviously, US claims of this are being a deconfliction zone are totally, completely false.
