Explosions Heard Near US Al-Tanf Garrison In Southeastern Syria

File image.

Late on December 21, at least four explosions rocked the southeastern Syrian area of al-Tanf where the US-led coalition maintains a large garrison.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) was among the first sources to report the mysterious explosions in al-Tanf. According to the London-based Syrian monitoring group, warplanes of the US-led coalition were flying over the area at the time of the explosions.

“There is still no information indicating if the explosions were the result of detonating mines, military training or a security breach caused by an unidentified attack on the garrison,” the SOHR’s report reads.

Around 200 US troops are usually deployed at al-Tanf garrison, which was established in 2016. The US-led coalition maintains a 55 kilometers no-fly, no-drive zone around the garrison.

On October 20, al-Tanf came under attack. The garrison was targeted with five suicide drones and indirect fire. The attack resulted in some serious material damage. However, there were no casualties. On December 14, a warplane of the Royal Air Force shot down one of two small drones that breached al-Tanf’s no-fly zone.

US officials believe that Iran or Iranian-backed forces were behind both the October 20 attack and the December 14 drone incident.

The US claims that its forces are present in al-Tanf to counter ISIS in Syria’s central and southern regions. However, the garrison was in fact established to block a strategic highway that links the Syrian capital, Damascus, with Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

It only needs one explosion to wipe it off the map,a Ballistic missile.

Die Chinesen sollen eine Autobahn um al tanf bauen…. Da bewachen die Yankees dann ein Stück Wüste…

It might be desert but it is what they are doing there in secret that matters.

There are no secrets about that. Bases like that are very well descriebed for decades.

Chinese see all others as below them.

Arabs to them all are some kind of lazy bum urgurs. They only like them a little because they are far away.

The US has a base at al-Tanf because it is like having a base at area51 . No one sees what they are
doing there. There is no country oversight as Syria is not allowed within 55 kms. It is away from the Jordanian and Iraqi borders so they have no interest in what goes on there. It says 200 troops but wasn’t that boosted by another 200 late last year or early this year so 400 US plus all the proxies. Well deserving of a missile or 3 as it is illegal by international law , not that the US gives a flying .. about international law.
ps: While I was writing this comment my screen froze and when it came back all those make money for free ads had disappeared so hopefully that is a good sign and being Christmas , maybe it is.
