Syria: US air base attacked after strike kills pro-Iran fighters
An attack targeted a US air base in the al-Omar oil field in Syria’s northeastern Deir Ezzor province on Friday, according to security sources cited by Reuters.
The targeting of the base in Syria’s largest oil field comes after 11 pro-Iranian fighters were killed by a US airstrike in eastern Syria hours earlier.
This strike was due to a kamikaze drone attack “of Iranian origin” that killed a US contractor and injured five US service personnel at a US coalition base near Hasakeh in northeastern Syria, according to the Pentagon.
