Drone attack reported against US base in Syria

Damascus, Jun 23 (Prensa Latina) The illegal US enclave located in the Tanef region in eastern Syria, near the border with Iraq and Jordan, was attacked today with unmanned aerial vehicles.

According to activists quoted by media here, anti-aircraft defenses at the base failed to destroy the drones and prevent them from reaching their targets.

Although no group claimed responsibility for the attack, some media attributed it to Iranian militias present in this nation to assist the Syrian army in its fight against terrorism.

The day before, several military positions and trucks of the Syrian army and its allies were attacked by the U.S. army in eastern Syria, near the border with Iraq.

Washington maintains some 15 bases on Syrian territory without the consent of the Syrian government in Damascus or the approval of the United Nations These facilities have been attacked with missiles and drones on more than 150 occasions since October last year, in response to U.S. support for the genocide committed by Israel in Gaza.
