Drones Target US Military Base In Syria

Three suicide drones attacked a US base in eastern Syria on Friday, wounding two Syrian opposition fighters.

Two of the drones were shot down and the third struck the compound at al-Tanf base where the borders of Syria, Iraq and Jordan meet.

It was not clear who was behind the drone attack, but Iran-backed fighters in the region have carried out such operations in the past.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition war monitor, said the attack was likely carried out by Iran-backed fighters who are deployed in different parts of war-torn Syria.

There are roughly 900 US troops in Syria, including in the north and the farther south and east of the country.
