A drone attack targeted a US base in the al-Tanf area in Syria, state news agency SANA reported on Thursday.
Multiple explosions rocked the US base late Wednesday night as a result of the attack, Xinhua news agency quoted SANA as sayonh without giving any other details.
Meanwhile, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also reported the explosions, saying it was not yet clear whether the attack was carried out by pro-Iran militia or not.
It’s worth noting that Israel has carried out its recent attacks from over the al-Tanf area, targeting positions of pro-Iran fighters.
In 2016, the US established the base in al-Tanf, located in a triangle of border regions between Syria, Iraq and Jordan.
The Syrian government has repeated calls for the US to withdraw from Syria, deeming its presence “illegal”.
