Iran-backed fighters fired three missiles at US military base at Al-Omar oil field
US killed 11 militants in strikes after Iranian drone strike killed American
The Iran-backed groups targeted the US base at the Al-Omar oil field in Syria's northeast with a missile attack at around 11am on Friday morning.
Two missiles fell in the oil field, without causing damage, while the third landed on a civilian house nearby, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. It was unclear whether the strikes had caused any casualties.
The militants launched the strikes just hours after President Biden ordered the U.S. Central Command forces to launch 'precision airstrikes' against facilities used by groups affiliated with Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, killing 11 pro-Iran fighters.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said Thursday's retaliatory airstrikes against the IRGC, a wing of the Iranian military which is blacklisted as a terrorist group by the US, were carried out by F-15 fighter jets. White House national security spokesman John Kirby said today the strikes were aimed at protecting American personnel in Syria.
This decision was in response to an earlier Iranian suicide drone killed a US contractor and injured five service members, as well as another American contractor at a maintenance facility on a Coalition base near al-Hasakah in northeast Syria.

Unclear to who?
It is unconscionable that our military would not have ID'd these threats and neutralized them already.
Get out of Syria.
First, we should kill every Iranian soldier in Syria. We owe them.
How many wars do we want to keep going at one time?
“Unclear to who?”
Unclear to RACHAEL BUNYAN apparently
leading from behind a la Obama.
It’s almost like being hosted on your petard...
Arming proxies with high tech weapons to attack folks you don’t like
How do we have a “base” in Syria? Did the Syrian government give permission for this? If not, is this not a violation of sovreignty? Did I miss a declaration of war by Congress?
Good Gawd get Biden out of that WH.
Like they did in Afghanistan and Iraq???
“It is unconscionable that our military would not have ID’d these threats and neutralized them already.”
Here’s a crazy idea. Let’s not try to emulate the failed British empire, an empire that went broke because they simply had to be present everywhere in the world.
Instead, let’s follow George Washington’s advice and avoid foreign entanglements.
Even Reagan knew to get the hell out of Dodge after the Beirut bombing.
Why are we in Syria?
These guys are sitting ducks.
they are completely land-locked, occupying Syrian territory, surrounded by nations who don’t want them there and are aligning against the USA.
Expect the attacks on them to continue, and get larger. The goal will be to humiliate the USA and Pedo Joe.
It should noted that I have zero confidence in Biden and our woke generals. It’s guaranteed they will find a way to create another Charlie Foxtrot. They are losers. It’s fricking disgusting.
Until we reach WW3, comrade. Didn’t Biden promise to bring unity? He has done that with our enemies. At home? Not so much.
It ain’t the pervert calling the shots
We’re earning 10% for the Big Guy.
