Iraqi resistance targets US military base in eastern Syria in retaliatory strike

Amid simmering anti-US sentiment over Washington’s support for the Israeli air and ground attacks on the Gaza Strip, Iraqi anti-terror resistance groups have carried out an attack against a US military installation in the eastern Syrian province of Dayr al-Zawr.

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq, an umbrella group of anti-terror fighters, in a statement published on its Telegram channel claimed responsibility for the rocket strike against the facility that houses US troops at the Conoco gas field.

The group noted that the attack was carried out in retaliation for US support of Israel’s bloody war against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

There were no immediate reports about the extent of damage at the military facility, or possible casualties.

The United States, Israel’s biggest ally, has provided the regime with arms and ammunitions since the initiation of the Gaza war.
