Video: Rockets Hit US Military Base in Eastern Syria Day After US Airstrike on Militia

Hundreds of US troops have remained in Syria long after the territorial defeat of Daesh, officially claiming to be supporting Kurdish militias fighting scattered Daesh elements. However, in 2019, then-US President Donald Trump admitted US forces were in Syria "only for oil," which has been spotted being shipped out in overnight truck convoys.

The day after US Air Force airstrikes targeted a militia group on both sides of the Iraq-Syria border, a rocket attack has been reported against a US base in eastern Syria.

According to local reports, the base under attack is adjacent to al-Omar oil field in Deir-ez-Zor Governorate, Syria's largest oil field, and at least eight rockets fell on the base. The identity of the attacking force is unknown.

US Col. Wayne Marotto, a spokesperson for Operation Inherent Resolve, the US-led mission against Daesh, said Monday that no injuries or damage to the base by the attack have been reported. He added that US troops at the base "acted in self-defense and conducted counter-battery artillery fire at rocket launching positions."
