No Americans have been injured after an attack on a US outpost in southern Syria on Wednesday, reports Reuters. The outpost, known as Tanf, is located near the intersection of the Iraqi and Jordanian border. US officials have told Reuters it is too early to know who is responsible for the blast.
“Explosions resounded from the al-Tanf base used by the US-led coalition” in southeastern Syria. Locals claim multiple drones were involved in the attack with “some coming from Iraq-Syria border”.
A rare bombing of an army bus in Syria’s capital #Damascus on Wednesday and shelling shortly after of a town in the country’s rebel-held northwest killed at least 27 people, in the deadliest flare-up in months.
What people are saying?
Nafiseh Kohnavard As I had stated earlier it was a combination of drone and rocket attack…The same method that Iran-backed groups have used before to attack some of the US bases in Iraq as well.
Richard Medhurst Just speculating, but I’d say this is the Resistance telling the israelis to watch out using al Tanf next time to bomb Syria. The base is not outside their grasp, and they know it.
