A US military base near a hydrocarbon deposit in Syria was attacked using drones

Explosions occurred at an American military base in Syria. The Lebanese press reports that the base, which is located in close proximity to the Al-Omar hydrocarbon field in the east of the Syrian Arab Republic, was attacked using a "swarm" drones».

In turn, the Egyptian press writes that with the help drones The infrastructure of the base and several units of American military equipment were hit. To date, no deaths or injuries have been reported among American military personnel.

Egyptian media:

This is the second attack on US military facilities in the Middle East this week.

The US Army base El-Omar is located in the Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor, and in that part of it that is controlled by Kurdish armed forces. American troops are engaged in outright smuggling of oil in these Syrian territories, which is then exported through Iraq in the interests of the United States. Part of the proceeds is transferred to the accounts of Kurdish groups, which, of course, do not pay any taxes to the Syrian state treasury.

The Pentagon again accused “pro-Iranian forces” of carrying out the attack on the El-Omar base in the Syrian Arab Republic.

Meanwhile, the Arab media associate a new attack on a US military facility in the region with American-British strikes against those same “pro-Iranian groups.”

      The main bombers themselves were bombed again. American soldiers actually became hostages of politicians.

      It's time to take them seriously, and not just intimidate them. And wherever they are located.

    The Egyptian press writes that drones were used to hit the infrastructure of the base and several pieces of American military equipment.
    Already something other than simply shell-shocked and frightened by the attack of several American military personnel, as was previously the case in Iraq and Syria during similar attacks. The three killed at the base in Jordan are a separate matter. As you can see, the relatively calm presence of the Americans in Syria has come to an end, for which they should thank Biden for making the decision to strike at Yemen.

        We also need to send registered martyrs for the death of our general in the area of ​​der-ez-zor.

        Part of the proceeds is transferred to the accounts of Kurdish groups, which, of course, do not pay any taxes to the Syrian state treasury.
        Damascus will pay a penalty to the Kurds. And for recovery - a bonus - the Russian Federation will receive oil instead of Conoco

      Yesterday there was information on Vesti that the Houthis attacked the warships of Sesha and the British, but then I didn’t see any more reports. And they even played some video. Poor quality indeed. And supposedly there are hits. Who knows about this "gratitude"?

        I also heard this news last night. They wrote that yesterday the Houthis attacked 4 ships (three Americans and one British). I don’t know how true this is; there are no officially confirmed reports yet. It would be nice if so. So far, the available “trophies” of the Houthis are presented in the table, although it does not include the last three ships that they “blessed” last weekhi

    Military bases in the East, Asia, and Africa are located near the deposits. That's all you need to know about "containing and defending democracy."

    Armed bandits have been illegally staying on the territory of a sovereign state for a long time. The legitimately elected head of state shows no desire to invite other military personnel to liberate the territory.
    There are Russian bases in Syria. Nearby there are Turkish military units. And no one can reason with the insolent Yankees....
    Have you tried burning it out with thermobaric ammunition? Sending Assad a couple of TOSochkas on wheels will not be difficult. Mobilize the liberated “Wagnerites” (they have something to show) and go ahead with song!

    It would be necessary to convey, through Syrian friends, to the gloomy “pro-Iranian forces (groups)”, whatever is more assertive, well, that will do for a start. Death to the American occupiers!
