The pro-Iranian Shiite militias belonging to the Islamic Resistance coalition in Iraq yesterday evening claimed responsibility for a drone attack against the US military base located near the Al Omar oil field, in the governorate of Deir ez Zor, in eastern Syria . We learn this from a press release issued by the Islamic Resistance in Iraq, which adds that the drone "directly hit the target". Furthermore, in a previous statement, the coalition factions stated that they had used "for the first time" a short-range intelligent missile of the Image.

Last November 12, in a note, US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin reported that the US Armed Forces had conducted a series of air strikes against pro-Iranian militias in Syria, targeting targets linked to the wave of recent attacks against the bases of the international Coalition in the country. In particular, on the evening of November 12, according to Austin, the US attacks had affected structures considered to belong to the Guards Corps of the Islamic revolution in Iran (Ircg, the pasdaran, ed.) and the groups affiliated to it. Among the targets of the airstrikes, Austin mentioned a training center near the town of Abu Kamal and a "safe house" near Mayadin. President Joe Biden directed the operation, the secretary added, “to make clear that the United States will defend itself, its personnel and its interests.” An anonymous defense official quoted by the Washington Post newspaper reported that the training center at Abu Kamal was also used for the storage of weapons and ammunition, and that secondary explosions were observed at the site after the airstrike.
