Drone Attack on US Base in Syria Kills Six Kurdish Fighters

Beirut: A drone attack on a U.S. base in eastern Syria has resulted in the deaths of six Kurdish fighters.

The attack targeted the al-Omar base in Deir el-Zour, where Kurdish forces receive training. 

Fortunately, there were no casualties among U.S. troops.

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq has claimed responsibility for the attack, launching a drone from an undisclosed location. 

This is the latest in a series of drone attacks by this group on U.S. military bases in Iraq and Syria, demanding the withdrawal of American soldiers from both countries.

The attack comes amidst rising tensions in the Middle East, including the Israel-Hamas conflict. 

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reports that at least seven SDF fighters were killed and 18 others wounded.

This incident occurred shortly after the U.S. carried out strikes against Iranian-linked militant targets in Syria and Iraq. 

The U.S. Central Command stated that the strikes were in self-defense, protecting U.S. Navy ships from imminent threats posed by anti-ship missiles in the Red Sea, originating from Houthi-controlled areas in Yemen.

The U.S. and Britain had recently launched another series of strikes against the Houthi rebels to diminish their ability to target vessels in the Red Sea, hitting 36 Houthi targets.
