US base in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor comes under missile attack

TEHRAN, Dec. 31 (MNA) – A US base near the al-Omar oil field in Syria’s northeastern Deir ez-Zor governorate came under missile shelling, Syrian media reported on Friday.

According to Syria’s General Organization of Radio and TV, several missiles were fired at the base. After the attack, US helicopters were seen in the area. No further details were given.

A larger part of Syria’s Deir ez-Zor, Raqqa and al-Hasakah governorates is currently controlled by the US-backed Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). Since 2015, the US command has set up nine military bases in this area. Damascus brands the United States’ military presence on Syria’s territory as an occupation.
