US Forces in Syria Attacked after Air rRids on Armed Groups

MURAD SEZER / Reuters

Iran-backed armed groups have exchanged fire with US-led coalition forces in eastern Syria, a war monitor said on Monday, after deadly US air strikes on the groups in Iraq and Syria the previous night.

Coalition spokesman Colonel Wayne Marotto said US troops were attacked by multiple rockets and suffered no casualties. He said US forces “conducted counter-battery artillery fire at rocket launching positions”, al-Jazeera reports.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Iran-backed armed groups fired several shells at a US base in eastern Syria’s Al-Omar oil field, causing damage but no casualties. 

Syrian state news agency SANA said “missiles … targeted a military base of the US occupation forces in the Al-Omar oil field”, without citing who was responsible.

Iran-backed armed groups had earlier promised to retaliate after the US launched several air raids on the groups in Iraq and Syria on Sunday.
