Drone Strike Reported On Syrian-Iraqi Border Few Hours After Attack On Al-Omar Oil Fields

Late on July 13, an unidentified combat drone targeted a military crossing on the Syrian-Iraqi border, according to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The crossing, which is located in the village of al-Harra in the southern countryside of Syria’s Deir Ezzor, is allegedly run by Iranian-backed Iraqi forces. No losses were reported as a result of the drone strike.

If confirmed, this will not be the first such strike this year. On May 22, an unidentified combat drone targeted a vehicle in the western region of Iraq, near the border line with Syria. The vehicle, a Toyota pickup truck, was allegedly carrying weapons.

The US and Israel both carried out strikes on Iranian-backed forces guarding the Syrian-Iraqi border line on several occasions in the last few years.

The alleged new strike on al-Harra crossing may have been a response by the US to recent attacks on its bases in northeastern Syria. Iranian-backed Syrian and Iraqi forces were allegedly behind these attacks.

Less than 12 hours before the alleged drone strike, official Syrian sources reported a new attack on the US main base in al-Omar oil fields in the northeastern region.

The ongoing covert war between the US and Iranian-backed forces in Iraq and Syria is without a doubt escalating. Washington appears to be incapable of deterring Tehran’s allies.

they dont get it that they cant control the intensity and quality of conflict anymore this just means that they will be hit in a combined attack probably drones and rockets maybe even cruise missile use either way the usa is wasting its own time it should remind itself why it left iraq in the past and ask itself it it wants to be humiliated the same fashion once again all over the place or if they rather simply retreat and somewhat safe face

If they leave Iraq, Iraq will shift from Petrodollar to Euro and Remimbi for its oil exports, one thing US cannot afford.

Precisely why they will be forced out.

The Objective

How many people were nuked in this drone strike. Trust SF will update us soon.
Bomb the shit out of them. Drop bunker busters on their asses. I hope tens died or crippled in the drone target practice

“How many people were nuked in this drone strike.”

I’m sure lots of ‘people’ died. Could be a wedding party, maybe a childs birthday celebration or even some poor smuck of a soldier carrying a gun but I’m willing to bet the perpetrators of the attack had their exit planned and were long gone by the time the drone struck.

I can guarantee you one thing though … this drone strike isn’t going to do you any favours with the natives and sure as hell won’t stop the attacks on US military.

The Objective

It’s not meant to stop attacks on the U.S.
Just normal weapons testing.

Faisal al Al-Mahdi

God curse the antiChrist America and his Satanic followers.
Imam Mahid (AS) is here with his 313 prophets.
Soon the Satanic followers will feel the wrath of God.

The Objective

Your mahdi is the Dajjal. Only Dajjal is in occultation. I believe in the Mahdi too and I pray for Allah to hasten his coming. These wars are a sign that his coming is near, but he’s certainly not the Shiite Mahdi. I fear for the people of Iran that they’ll be the biggest followers of the Dajjal at least in his early days.
