Missile attack targets US occupation base in Deir Ezzor
The frequently targeted US occupation base in Syria is under attack again.
A US occupation base near Al-Omar oil field in Syria's northeastern Deir Ezzor governorate was shelled with missiles on Friday, according to Syrian media.
Several missiles were fired at the base, according to Syria’s General Organization of Radio and TV. After the attack, US helicopters were seen in the area. No further details were given.
It is worth mentioning that the US occupation base is frequently shelled with missiles.
The US-backed Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces currently control a large portion of Syria's Deir Ezzor, Raqqa, and Al-Hasakah governorates.
The US command has established nine military bases in this area since 2015. Damascus considers the US military presence on Syrian territory to be an occupation.
Yesterday, an ISIS terrorist attack in Deir Ezzor, Syria, killed 10 oil field workers, Syrian news agency SANA reported. The attack came a day after US-backed Syrian forces announced that they would be launching a counter-terrorist operation.
Syrian news agency SANA gave a toll of 10 dead in the "terrorist attack that targeted three buses transporting workers" from Al-Taym oil field.
Bassam Tohme, the minister of oil and mineral resources, explained that the Syrian people are experiencing an oil crisis and that the American occupation, through its mercenaries and terrorist organizations, wants to cut off the supply of oil that meets the country's basic needs.
As a result, they carried out this egregious attack on the shifts of workers at the Al-Taym field at Al-Furat Company.
