Several Strikes Hit US Al-Tanf Garrison In Southeastern Syria

Late on October 20, several explosions rocked the US-led coalition garrison in the southeastern Syrian area of al-Tanf, where some 200 American troops are deployed.

Jadeh Iran, an Arabian speaking Iranian news outlet, said that five suicide drones struck the garrison. An Iraqi source told the outlet that two of the drones were launched from inside Syria and at least three came from the direction of Iraq.

Meanwhile, a source in the US Central Command told Sky News Arabia that al-Tanf garrison came under a “missile attack.” The source claimed that the attack didn’t result in any American casualties.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, US troops and their Syrian proxies evacuated the garrison and took shelter in nearby areas during the attack.

The US-led coalition and its proxies maintain a strict 55 kilometers no-fly, no-drive zone around al-Tanf garrison, which blocks the main highway linking the Syrian capital, Damascus, and the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

The attack was reportedly carried out by Iranian-backed forces. Last week, The Allies of Syria Operations Room, which commands Iranian-backed forces in Syria, vowed to response “very harshly” to the October 13 Israeli airstrikes that targeted the outskirts of the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra.

The airstrikes, which claimed the lives of a Syrian service member and three Iranian-backed fighters, were launched from the airspace of al-Tanf.

The attack on al-Tanf garrison represents a serious attempt by Iran and its allies in Syria to deter both the US and Israel. The US may respond to the attack soon.

Alexandre Moumbaris

It was about time this happened.

Putin is a ZioWhore

Nice! If the Gay ZioYankees respond to this, it gives the green light for more strikes, this time without warnings.


They need to blast tanf off the map.

Peter Wallace

Not much there apart from the base which should have been blasted years ago. Looks pretty barren . Is that the base where the bus stop is as there doesn’t appear to be anything else around .


Good news. Continued operations against foreign terrorists operating in Syria must be maintained. Hopefully a few ballistic missiles find there way into al-Tanf.

Peter Wallace

First time the base has been fired at . All the Yanks will get Purple Hearts and the proxies clean underwear.

All gloves are coming off now. It was inevitable. The Syrians and Iranians have to apply the same guerilla asymmetric warfare tactics used by the Iraqis on the US causing them countless casualties and a withdrawal from the country. Need we say who the architect of that strategy was: Gen. Soleimeni.

Chris Gr

First of all, Iraqi insurgents were many Saddamists who were against Iran. Secondly, Iran has a numerous army. US only has 2.000 soldiers in Syria and 5.000 soldiers in Iraq.


Plus the mercenaries, which they show as subcontractors.

Peppe il Sicario

Yeah, I know that! How the f*ck do you think ISIS was created???????

Capt. Steven Hiller, USMC
