An attack attributed to Iran has targeted a base hosting US forces in Syria along the country’s border with Iraq and Jordan, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

SOHR added that the drone attack had occurred near the Tanf garrison and comes against a backdrop of discussion between the US and Iran on an agreement concerning Iran’s nuclear program.

There were no victims or material damage resulting.

Iran does not take responsibility for this type of attack, which – according to regional media – are carried out by Iran-backed Iraqi armed groups deployed in Syria in the Middle Euphrates River Valley near the cities of Albu Kamal and Deir al-Zor, north of the Tanf garrison.

This is the second attack attributed to Iran in a week and the third in a month against a military base known as “Kilometer 55”, which serves as an outpost for the US-led coalition against the Islamic State to contain Iranian expansion across Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon.

Initially officially created to counter ISIS in Syria, the Tanf garrison hosts Syrian opposition fighters backed by the US.
