Two U.S. bases attacked in Syria

Damascus, Dec 1 (Prensa Latina) The US forces illegally present in the northeast of this nation were attacked with rockets and drones, media reported here quoting local activists.

According to the sources, the Pentagon’s military enclave located in the Al-Omar oilfield in the north of the eastern province of Deir Ezzor was attacked with unmanned aerial vehicles.

The so-called Iraqi National Islamic Resistance claimed responsibility for the action, and it has not yet been confirmed whether it caused casualties among military personnel or material losses.

A similar missile attack was also reported against the Washington base in the town of Shaddadi, in the south of Hasakeh province.

On the other hand, local sources indicated that three US helicopters landed at the Kherab Jir base, loaded with military equipment and reinforcements.

According to Pentagon officials, 74 bombings against U.S. targets in Syria have been reported since October 7.

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

Syria repeatedly denounced this presence, which it described as an occupation, and assured that the actions of the U.S. military on Syrian territory encourage terrorist activity and are aimed at destabilizing the country and plundering its resources.

Attacks on these bases increased markedly since the beginning of the Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip, exceeding 100 in both Syria and Iraq, and resulting in injuries to at least 45 U.S. servicemen.
