Two US military bases in eastern Syria were targeted by rockets on Thursday, Arab and Syrian media reported.
US military bases in the oil fields of al-Omar and Koniko in Deir Ezzor countryside were targeted by several missiles, SANA news agency reported, quoting civil sources.
The sources added that the US occupation forces closed the area, and it was not known whether the attack left casualties among the US occupation forces amid intensive overflights of aircraft in the airspace of the area.
Al Mayadeen also reported the attack, saying that three rockets have fallen on a US base in the Koniko gas field, northeast of the province.
Al-Mayadeen sources added that “the shells fell inside the base and caused material damage,” but no information was received on any human casualties.
The sources indicated that “international coalition helicopters and warplanes flew in the airspace of Deir Ezzor countryside, amid the mobilization of patrols after targeting al-Qaeda with missiles, in an attempt to find out the location of the targeting platforms.”
Immediately after the attack, ambulances rushed to the site of the explosions to transport the dead and possibly wounded, amid a heavy deployment of the US-affiliated SDF militants in the area, according to Sputnik.
