Missiles hit US-run base in eastern Syria amid anger over support for Gaza carnage

Amid rising anti-US sentiments over Washington’s support for the Israeli onslaught on Gaza, a military base in Syria’s eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr, where US occupation troops and their allied militants are stationed, has come under a missile attack.

The Arabic service of Russia’s Sputnik news agency, citing local sources speaking on condition of anonymity, reported that massive explosions were heard on Saturday afternoon as several projectiles slammed into an installation run by American occupation forces at the Conoco gas field.

Columns of smoke rose from inside the base, as American military officials declared a state of emergency and deployed more forces.

There were no immediate reports about the extent of damage at the military facility, and possible casualties.

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 Syria.

The United States conducts airstrikes in Syria under the pretext of fighting terrorism.

The United States, Israel’s biggest ally, has provided the occupying regime with a raft of arms and ammunition since the initiation of the Gaza war.

Washington has also vetoed UN Security Council resolutions that called on the regime to cease its aggression.

Israel waged the war on Gaza on October 7 after the Strip-based Palestinian resistance groups of Hamas and Islamic Jihad carried out the surprise Operation Al-Aqsa Storm into the occupied territories in response to the occupying regime’s intensified crimes against the Palestinian people.

According to the Gaza-based health ministry, at least Palestinians have been killed in the strikes, most of them women and children, and another 68,395 individuals injured.
