US officials say American advisors accompanying Syrian opposition forces came under attack by government-backed troops in Deir el-Zour Province.
Syrian government forces are active on the other side of the river around the city of Deir al-Zor. The US official said that US forces in the region counterattacked using artillery and aircraft.
The SDF are led mainly by a Syrian Kurdish militia, known as the People's Protection Units or YPG, whose presence has caused increased tension between the US and Turkey, which considers the YPG to be "terrorists".
The heavy death toll underscored the large size of the attack, which the USA official said included about 500 opposing forces, backed by artillery, tanks, multiple-launch rocket systems and mortars.
The US-led coalition had previously alerted Russian officials about the presence of SDF forces in nearby Khusham after seeing a slow build-up of pro-government forces during the last week.
The forces were "likely seeking to seize oilfields in Khusham that had been a major source of revenue for Daesh from 2014 to 2017".
United States military officials said the attacks, which began late on Wednesday, were conducted to "repel acts of aggression". The Syrian army is supported by Iranian-backed militias and Russian forces.
Statements carried by Syrian television stations called it a "new aggression" and "an attempt to support terrorism".
