After Iranian airstrikes | Coalition Forces return to al-Tanaf base, with frequent flights by Coalition aircraft over the region

Syrian Observatory activists have monitored frequent flights by International Coalition aircraft over the Coalition military base in al-Tanaf in the 55-kilometre zone in the Syrian desert, near the Syria-Jordan-Iraq border triangle. These flights aim to survey and comb the region in the wake of the attack on the base by Iranian drones on Wednesday.

 

SOHR sources have also reported that Coalition Forces returned to the base, hours after they had been deployed nearby the base, just before the Iranian airstrikes. Meanwhile, the members of Jaysh Maghawir al-Thawra have been still positioned in the surrounding areas of the base, and it is expected that the movement will issue a statement about the recent development in the incoming hours.

 

Yesterday, SOHR sources reported that International Coalition Forces did not return to al-Tanaf military base in the 55-kilometre zone near the Syria-Iraq-Jordan border triangle. Coalition Forces were deployed nearby the base, and it was expected that they would return to the base on that day.

 

SOHR sources also reported that a group of Jaysh al-Maghawir entered the base and checked the material damage caused by yesterday’s attack by an unidentified drone. Meanwhile, the body carried out this attack remained unknown.

 

On Wednesday, SOHR activists reported that explosions were heard in al-Tanf military base of International Coalition in the evening, due to drone shelling on the buffet, a mosque, and the depot of food supply inside the base. It’s unknown yet whether ISIS or Iranian militias were responsible for the shelling. However, no casualties were reported.

 

SOHR activists reported military alert of Jaish Maghaweer al-Thawra in the evening, in the 55 square kilometers area near al-Tanf base of the International Coalition where British forces were stationed, at the Syrian-Iraqi-Jordanian border.

 

SOHR sources confirmed that the International Coalition forces and Jaish al-Maghaweer deployed in the vicinity of al-Tanf base, coinciding with information about targeting al-Tanf base with drones, while the armed faction evacuated the base of its vehicles to transport them to other checkpoints which were prepared with mobile medical checkpoints.

 

It is worth noting that this targeting is the first of its kind for the military base.
