BREAKING: Deadly Attack On Base With US Military

( – Stressing the need for the U.S. to retaliate against its enemies across the globe, a vicious drone strike killed at least six allied Kurdish fighters when it hit a Syrian base where U.S. troops are stationed.

This incident marks the first attack of its kind in Iraq or Syria after the U.S. counterstruck Iran-supported groups that killed three U.S. service members in Jordan last month.

According to The Associated Press, no U.S. troops lost their lives in this incident while the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) reported that the strike targeted a training area at the al-Omar base in Syria’s Deir el-Zour province.

In turn the Islamic Resistance in Iraq is a coalition of Iran-supported militias and said they were behind this recent strike through a video. The group also took credit for the previous deadly attack in Jordan.

Initially the SDF pointed fingers at mercenaries led by the Syrian regime for the drone strike but they shifted the blame to Iran-backed militias following further investigation.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights keeps an eye on Syria’s situation and reported that seven members of the SDF were killed and at least 18 were injured.

In the wake of this attack the White House warned Iran that the U.S. is ready to strike back if Iran-supported militias keep up their aggression. During an interview with NBC News anchor Kristen Welker on “Meet the Press” National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan made it clear the U.S. self-defense actions in Iraq and Syria were just the beginning of a broader plan and stated:

“It began with strikes on Friday night, but that is not the end of it. We intend to take additional strikes and additional action to continue to send a clear message that the United States will respond when our forces are attacked, or people are killed.”

Additionally the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) reported that it carried out a defensive strike in Yemen against a Houthi land attack cruise missile. CENTCOM detailed that the U.S. targeted four anti-ship cruise missiles that were ready to strike vessels in the Red Sea.
