American Warplanes Attack Targets In Eastern Syria
In response to the drone and rocket attacks against the US occupation military bases in the region, the US army fighter jets attacked targets in Syria’s Deir Ezzor province.
The US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin announced an air strike on two headquarters belonging to resistance groups on the border of Iraq and Syria in response to attacks against American bases in the region.
According to the US Secretary of Defense, in this attack, a command control center and weapons warehouse near the cities of Al-Bukamal and Al-Mayadeen were targeted by American fighter jets.
He said President Joe Biden ordered the strikes. “The President has no higher priority than the safety of U.S. personnel, and he directed today’s action to make clear that the United States will defend itself, its personnel, and its interests,” Austin said in a statement.
This is the third US air attack on resistance positions in recent days. In the morning of November 8th, American fighter jets targeted a weapons warehouse in Deir Ezzor province.
According to the US officials, so far, 56 US personnel have been injured by these attacks in Syria and Iraq. The injuries are allegedly a combination of traumatic brain injury and minor injuries with no death.
