BEIRUT, December 11. /TASS/. A US military base located near the al-Omar oil field in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor governorate has been attacked with missiles, the Sham FM radio station said, citing witnesses.
According to the witnesses, several powerful explosions rocked the US military facility.
Earlier, another US military base in al-Shaddadi in the vicinity of the al-Jebsa oil field in the south of Syria’s al-Hasakah governorate was shelled from multiple missile launchers. No details were made public.
According to the Al Mayadeen television channel, the Islamic Resistance in Iraq Shiite movement claimed responsibility for the attacks.
On November 30, Shiite units issued a Telegram statement warning the United States that they would increase the number of armed operations in Syria and Iraq because "the American enemy continues to offer military assistance to the Israeli army, which is killing civilians in the Gaza Strip and southern Lebanon.".
