Largest US base in Syria is attacked with rockets

Damascus, Dec 12 (Prensa Latina) The illegal US base, located in the Al-Omar oil field in northeastern Syria was the target of a new rocket strike, activists and media reported.

According to the sources, numerous explosions were heard inside the aforementioned base, considered to be the largest in the country, and located in the province of Deir Ezzor, about 450 kilometers northeast of Damascus.

The US armed forces have not made any official statement regarding the attack, and whether it caused casualties or material losses.

Four illegal US military enclaves in the provinces of Deir Ezzor and Hasakeh were attacked with rockets simultaneously on the 9th of this month.

The Iraqi Islamic Resistance claimed responsibility for most of the attacks, stating that they were carried out in response to US support for Israel’s genocide against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.

According to Pentagon officers, more than 80 attacks have been reported against US targets in Syria since October 7th, which represents a 45 percent increase.
