Iraqi resistance fighters attack US military base in northeast Syria: Report

Iraqi resistance fighters have reportedly launched drone strikes on a military facility occupied by US forces near the northeastern Syrian city of Qamishli on the Turkish border.

Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen news channel reported that the attacks targeted Hemo base, situated west of Qamishli Airport, early on Thursday.

The report added that Hemo was also a US spy base housing elements of the Zionist regime.

Hemo base, which hosts close to 350 American soldiers, is believed to be a vital one for the US occupation forces in Syria since it serves as a special training camp for the US-backed so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

This comes as news reports by Arab media said two days ago that troops were evacuated as a result of attacks by resistance factions in Iraq.

Meanwhile, Sabereen News, a Telegram news channel associated with Iraqi anti-terror Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), said that Thursday’s operation was the second raid on Hemo base since October 7, when Israel launched a genocidal war on the Gaza Strip.

Iraqi resistance forces have conducted dozens of strikes on the US-run military installations in both Iraq and Syria amid growing anti-US sentiments in the region over Washington’s support for the Israeli aggression against besieged Gaza.

Iraqi resistance fighters have launched a series of attacks against US military bases in Syria and Iraq over Washington’s support for the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip.

Israel waged its brutal war following a historic operation by the Gaza-based Hamas resistance group against the occupying entity in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

However, more than 100 days into the offensive, the Tel Aviv regime has failed to achieve its objectives in Gaza despite killing over 24,000 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injuring at least 61,000 others.

The US is a partner in the Gaza carnage as it has supplied Israel with weapons and intelligence support, and blocked UN resolutions calling for a humanitarian ceasefire in the Palestinian territory.
