Late on September 18, a series of explosions were reported at the US-led coalition Green Village base in Syria’s northeastern region.
The base is located in the center of al-Omar oil fields in the southeastern Deir Ezzor countryside. It is one of the coalition’s main installations in Syria. Dozens of heavily-armed coalition troops are usually deployed at the base.
The Syrian state TV said that the explosions were caused by a rocket attack. Fire and several column of smoke were reportedly spotted at the base. However, no casualties have been reported, as of yet.
Just a day earlier, several news sources reported a similar attack on the US-led coalition al-Shaddadi base in the southern al-Hasakah countryside.
The two alleged attacks on the coalition’s bases in al-Omar and al-Shaddadi came after a series of Israeli strikes on the Syrian capital, Damascus. The strikes, which took place in the early hours of September 17, targeted the airport and several positions, including an alleged support office of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Five Syrian service members were reportedly killed.
The coalition is yet to comment on the alleged attacks, which may have been response to the recent Israeli strikes on Damascus.
Last month, Iranian-backed forces attacked a garrison of the US-led coalition in the southeastern Syrian area of al-Tanf with several suicide drones in response to a series of Israeli strikes that targeted air defense bases in Tartus and Damascus. The attack eventually led to a limited confrontation with the coalition.
