Unidentified gunmen launched more than 10 projectiles at the enclave; alarms went off and the sound of ambulances was heard, while reconnaissance planes and helicopters intensified their flights after the action, according to activists.
They added that plumes of smoke were observed at the site, as US forces established a strong security cordon around the perimeter of the camp and on nearby roads.
Sources quoted by the Al-Mayadeen channel indicated that two of the projectiles fell near the soldiers’ barracks.
In turn, tribal representatives confirmed to the al-Watan diary that the attacks are the expressions of rejection of the US presence in Syrian territory.
No one accepts their presence except a few groups who get benefit from them. An increase in attacks against those troops are expected because there is a widespread resentment against the Pentagon´s military in the area, as been said by the medias.
The local tribes and clans have expressed on several occasions their refusal to foreign forces present without official permission in native territory and have called for popular resistance, including the army, against the intruders.
