Rocket attack causes fires in US base in Syria

Several shells hit the enclave established in the al-Omar oil field, and caused material losses, but no casualties have been confirmed among the US military yet, added the sources, quoted by the al-Watan daily.

They added that a state of alert prevailed among the US Army, while helicopters and reconnaissance planes flew over the areas surrounding the base. Popular anger is growing noticeably against the practices of these forces, and during the last two years explosive attacks on convoys or rocket attacks on their bases have been reported, while the military and villagers frequently intercept the military columns and prevent their passage, according to the reports.

Despite repeated denunciations by Syria at the United Nations and at international forums, Washington continues maintaining at least 12 bases, mostly in the oil and gas fields, mainly in the region of al-Jazira (east of the Euphrates).

This illegal presence of US troops, according to allegations, encourages terrorist and separatist activity and deprives the Syrian people of their natural wealth as the US military and its allied extremist groupings continue plundering wheat and oil.
