Syria’s northeastern region has experienced a deadly confrontation between the United States-led coalition and forces backed by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

The confrontation broke out on March 23, when a suicide drone struck the coalition’s RLZ base, which is located near the city of al-Hasakah. The attack claimed the life of a U.S. contractor and left five U.S. service members and a second U.S. contractor wounded.

The Pentagon said the intelligence community had determined that the suicide drone used in the attack was of Iranian origin.

The U.S. Central Command retaliated by launching a series of airstrikes against installations of Iranian-backed forces in Deir Ezzor governorate. The targets were reportedly located in Deir Ezzor city and near the towns of al-Mayadin and al-Bukamal in the southern countryside.

Following the airstrikes, a salvo of rockets hit the coalition’s Green Village base, which is located within al-Omar oil fields in the southeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, without causing any losses.

The next day, March 24, the Iranian Advisory Committee in Syria, said in a statement that the U.S. airstrikes had killed seven of their fighters and wounded seven others, without specifying the fighters’ nationality.

Hours after the release of the statement, Iranian-backed forces launched two simultaneous attacks against coalition bases in Deir Ezzor.

One U.S. service member was injured in a rocket attack at the Conoco gas plant in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside. At about the same time, several suicide drones attacked the Green Village base. All but one of the drones were shot down and there were no casualties there.

In his first comment on the confrontation, President Joe Biden vowed to respond to any attack on U.S. troops in Syria. However, he stated that his country is not looking for a conflict with Iran.

In response, Keyvan Khosravi, a spokesperson for Iran’s top security body, warned on March 25 that any attack on Iranian-linked bases in Syria will be met with a swift response. On the same day, the Damascus government condemned the U.S. airstrikes and called on Washington to withdraw its troops from Syria.

On March 26, a shadowy pro-Iran Iraqi armed group calling itself the Victorious Brigade claimed responsibility for the deadly drone attack on U.S. troops in Syria, confirming the Pentagon assessment. Footage released by the group revealed that a copy of the Iranian Ababil-2 suicide drone was used in the attack.

The situation in northeastern Syria remains tense. The confrontation put some pressure on the U.S. However, it was not enough to force Washington to withdraw its estimated 900 troops from the oil-rich northeastern region and the southeastern area of al-Tanf.

Another wise assessment. If US comes into cap the wells, kill them too! No mercy for imperialist scum! If the troops don’t know they are violating intl law, they aren’t very good soldiers.

Russia won the war a while

Right, but Syria needs the money from oil to fund the engineers and other builders who are rebuilding their nation from ashes of war, US is a terroristic non-empathetic, pathetic, foolish hypocrite regime.

Rusko by malo na oplátku dodať Sýrii zopár svojich hypersonických rakiet na zrovnanie zo zemou tých nelegálnych základní, ktoré ma darebácky štát USA na Sýrskom území!!! A samozrejme by RF mala o tomto poinformovať darebácky štát USA. Že je to recipročné riešenie preto, lebo USA podporujú Banderovských fašistov na Ukrajine. A pokým to bude pretrvávať, tak RF bude postupovať rovnako!!! Je čas, aby RF trochu prihodila, teraz by RF mala zvýšiť stávku!!! Ono reakcia darebáckeho štátu USA by potom jasne naznačila akým smerom sa bude situácia ďalej na Ukrajine vyvíjať.

It ain’t rocket science! Flood the largest US base with small drone attacking missiles and then when the US base has had it’s defenses overwhelmed, send in a dozen huge bombs/missiles to completely wipe the base out!

So does Iran have air-defense capability or not? Seems the Americans are still flying and bombing as they please in Syria.

US troops don’t need to leave Syria. Just kill them one by one, as there are only 900 of them supposedly.

Shoot down all planes, kill all US troops. The only way to rid yourself of plague is ripping it out root and stem.

dsfg

Stop calling them suicide drones. So annoying.

The term “Kamikaze” or “Suicide drones” refer to a drone, that is remotely piloted and unmanned and it is similar to Japanese kamikaze pilots but this one is a drone, instead of sacrificing pilots they sacrifice a drone, that is why they called “Shahed” in other words “Martyr”.

Ahson

No, that’s not true. Shahed is witness. Shaheed is martyr.

Jean Paul France

The Americans allowed Israel to have nuclear weapons, they gave the UK submarines and tridents in the Cold War, now also Australia.

While Russia does not dare to give nuclear aid to Iran because it is taboo, oh how scary, the ICC in The Hague and the “International Community” will be angry!

So why be surprised that the Anglo-Saxons and Zionists are the neighborhood bullies and always do whatever they want???

The whole thing will collapse when Ukraine is over and it just about is !

Russia just dealt the NAZI supporting NATO a very serious blow in Ukraine !

NATO won’t be able to take much more of this – if anything !

The Greek edition of Pronews published information that the NATO command center in Ukraine was hit by a Russian supersonic Kinzhal missile, which led to huge losses among NATO officers.

The missile, which is capable of reaching speeds in excess of Mach 10 – hit the underground headquarters where NATO officials were based – including more than 300 people – including the British, Poles – Americans and representatives of private companies involved in communications and data transmission.

Biden refusing to get the US troops out of Syria after multiple demands by Assad to get out is clearly an Act of War on the part of the US regime. US troops get hit and “contractors” die? So what. These are things the Biden Bullies are causing, but the US dictatorship will never learn. I I have been living under this oppressive, warmongering American-hating autocracy 2 1/2 years too long and was too stupid to realize all of the “political fires” the collective west and the US were setting in every country they dipped their “boots” into. And all of it for the Military Industrial Complex.

Overwhelm those US bases with constant rocket attacks to deplete their defenses.
