US Military Base Rocked by Two Blasts: Report

US Military Base Rocked by Two Blasts: Report

Alwaght- At least two explosions were heard at a military base used by American forces in eastern Syria, Iraqi outlet reports.

Sabereen News, which is associated with Iraqi anti-terror Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), said sounds of at least two blasts were heard in a US base in al-Omar oil field in the Deir ez-Zor province near the Syrian-Iraqi border in the early hours of Monday.

Al-Omar oil field is located on the border area between Iraq and Syria. No further details have been released on the possible casualties or damages.

The report comes as American media outlets reported that Russia launched a string of strikes on US positions in Syria last month.

Citing US military officials, the Wall Street Journal reported last month that Russian forces conducted a series of operations against the US-led coalition in Syria, including one at a strategically located base in the southern part of the country.

According to the report, US military officials were concerned that a miscalculation might escalate into an unintended conflict between the American and Russian forces in Syria as tensions between Moscow and Washington have been already high since the start of Russia’s offensive in Ukraine in February.

Russia had notified the US that it would be launching the air raids in response to attacks conducted against the Syrian troops.

The United States and its allies invaded Syria in 2014 under the pretext of fighting ISIS terrorists. The terrorists had emerged as Washington was running out of excuses to extend its regional meddling or enlarge it in scale.

The US military has stationed forces and equipment in northeastern Syria. The Pentagon claims the deployment is aimed at preventing the oilfields in the area from falling into the hands of ISIS terrorists. Damascus says the deployment is meant to plunder Syria’s rich mineral resources.

Former US President Donald Trump admitted on more than one occasion that American forces were in Syria for its oil.
