US: Drone attack targets US base in Syria, no casualties

KION

BEIRUT (AP) — The U.S. military says an attack with drones hit a compound run by American troops and U.S.-backed Syrian opposition fighters in eastern Syria. The military says there were no casualties or damage. It said Monday’s attack took place in the vicinity of al-Tanf base near where the borders of Syria, Jordan and Iraq meet. There was no claim of responsibility for the attack. U.S. and coalition troops are based at al-Tanf to train Syrian opposition forces on patrols to counter militants from the Islamic State group. Such attacks on al-Tanf are rare. U.S. officials said in October they believe Iran was behind a similar attack on the base that month.
