2 US soldiers have disappeared in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor after the attack on their vehicle near the Omar oil fields, Syrian state-run media reported.

“Two US troops were attacked in Deir Ezzor eastern countryside on Monday as their fate was unknown yet, civil sources in Deir Ezzor countryside revealed.

The sources indicated to SANA reporter that unknown assailants attacked the Hummer vehicle carrying US occupation troops while it was traveling from al-Omar field to al-Tank field where the vehicle was found completely destroyed and burned.

The two troops’ fate is still unknown, according to the sources.

Earlier this month, an officer in the US army and two members of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have been killed in an ambush carried out by unknown persons near the village of al-Wasi’a which is affiliated to Al-Sur Township in Deir Ezzor countryside,” the report by the SANA news agency says.

This is the third report of this kind within the last few weeks. Earlier, SANA and other Arab media claimed that several US troops were killed in attacks by unidentified gunment in the northeastern part of Syria and on the eastern bank of the Euphrates. All these reports remain unconfirmed by the Pentagon. It’s possible that these killed ‘US soldiers’ were just US-linked private military contractors. So, the Pentagon is not oblidged to report these casualties.
