A drone attack struck the largest US military base in Syria, killing six Kurdish-led fighters, according to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The attack targeted the SDF’s commando academy at the al-Omar oil field in Deir al-Zour province.

The SDF blamed Iran-backed militias for launching the drone from an area controlled by Syrian government forces nearby.

This incident follows US strikes on Iran-backed groups in Iraq and Syria over the weekend, in response to a deadly drone attack on a base in Jordan.

The SDF condemned the attack and vowed to respond appropriately. The Islamic Resistance in Iraq (IRI), an umbrella group of Iraqi militias linked to Iran, claimed responsibility for the attack, stating it was in solidarity with the Palestinian people.

The US has conducted strikes against IRGC-affiliated targets in both Iraq and Syria. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is currently in the Middle East, seeking to address regional tensions and promote stability.
