US military base in Syria hit by drone strike

US official said the attack appeared to include at least one drone strike and possibly groundfire at the base in Al-Tanf, Syria, which houses some of the 900 US soldiers in Syria. The base is also located on a road serving as a vital link for Iranian-backed forces from Tehran, all the way to southern Lebanon and Israel.

‘Explosions resounded from the Al Tanf base used by the US-led coalition’ fighting Daesh group, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said in a statement. Daesh is a name used locally for ISIS.

The official who spoke on condition of anonymity said there was no information on whether local Syrian forces were injured or killed in the attack.
