  •  US-occupied military base in east Syria comes under rocket attack

An illegal military facility housing US occupation forces in Syria’s eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr has reportedly come under a rocket attack from nearby areas amid growing anti-US sentiments over Washington’s support for the Israeli onslaught on Gaza.

Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network, citing local sources, reported that ‏several explosions were heard in the area close to the US-controlled al-Omar oil field on Thursday evening after several projectiles struck the site.

There were no immediate reports about possible casualties or the extent of damage at the installation.

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq, an umbrella group of anti-terror fighters, has claimed responsibility for most of the retaliatory strikes on US military bases in Iraq and neighboring Syria.
