Syria's al-Tanf Base Hosting US Troops Comes Under Drone Attack, Reports Suggest - Sputnik International

Reports on social media indicated that the American garrison at Al-Tanf had come under attack late on Wednesday night by a number of unmanned aerial vehicles.

According to local reports, as many as five drones were involved in the attack, including at least one suicide drone, with “some coming from Iraq-Syria border," a source told a BBC reporter. There are no reports of casualties at present.

The identity of the attackers is so far unknown, and the American-led anti-Daesh coalition has yet to comment on the strike.

The remote desert base, located along the M2 Baghdad-Damascus highway near Syria's border with Iraq and Jordan, has been held by American troops since early 2016, when the base was used to train so-called "moderate rebels" fighting against the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad.
