In this paper, we prove the existence of multiple solutions in the Bessel Potential space for a new class of nonlinear fractional Schrödinger-Poisson systems involving the distributional Riesz fractional derivative. To reach our goal, we use the symmetric mountain pass theorem under some suitable assumptions on nonlinearity $f(x,u)$ and potential $V(x)$.
