An unidentified unmanned aerial vehicle struck several oil tanks near the village of al-Hamran, located north of the town of Manbij in northern Syria. The village is located on the contact line between territories controlled by Turkish-backed forces and the Kurdish-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
According to local sources, the oil tankers were belonging to SDF-linked oil smugglers that sell oil looted from the US-controlled oil fields on the eastern bank of the Euphrates to Turkish-linked entities.
