US occupation base in Syria targeted again
Local sources in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside reported explosions near the US base in Al-Omar oil field.
Eight explosions were heard on Friday in the vicinity of Al-Omar oil field in Syria's Deir Ezzor countryside, Sputnik reported.
The oil field is being used by the US occupation as a military base, its largest in eastern Syria. Local sources reported that the eight explosions were heard in the towns and villages surrounding the oil field, which is the biggest in Syria.
The eight explosions seem to have been caused by eight rockets of unknown origin, according to sources, yet it seems likely that they were launched from southeast the Euphrates, or from north of the river, by the region's popular resistance.
Al-Omar oil field and the Koniko gas factory have both been targeted by the popular resistance's rockets. No information has been provided on the occupation's possible losses.
Al Mayadeen's sources had also reported on Wednesday that Al-Omar was targeted by rocket fire. The sources added that the missiles caused material damage to the base, placing the entire base and its soldiers on alert.
