New drone strikes against US bases in Syria

In two separate statements, the aforementioned group claimed responsibility for the attack using two drones against US forces concentrated in the Tanef area, in eastern Syria, near the border with Iraq and Jordan.

He added that the drones reached their targets without confirming if there were any casualties or material damage to the base.

Another attack targeted the residences of US military personnel at a base built on the Al-Omar oil field in the north of the eastern province of Deir Ezzor.

Bombardment with missiles and drones against US targets in Syria has increased significantly since the start of Israel’s war against the Gaza Strip on the 7th of this month, and at least 15 attacks have been reported.

Pentagon spokesman General Pat Ryder admitted that US forces were attacked by drones and missiles at least 12 times in Iraq and four times in Syria between the 17th and 26th of this month.

He acknowledged that one contractor was killed and 21 other soldiers were injured in these actions.

Washington maintains fifteen bases on Syrian territory without the permission of the government of Damascus or the approval of the United Nations.

Syria has repeatedly criticized this presence, which it describes as an occupation, and asserts that US military actions on national territory encourage terrorist activity and aim to destabilize the country and steal its wealth.

These constant attacks take place in the midst of an Israeli escalation and after the United States sent two aircraft carriers to the eastern Mediterranean Sea amid warnings about the regionalization of the conflict.
