Nearly 10 days after rocket attack on areas held by Iran-backed militias | Violent explosions hit area hosting Coalition’s al- Tanaf base

Two explosions hit the 55-kilometre zone at Syria-Iraq-Jordan border triangle in the Syrian desert, where the military base of the international coalition is located.

The international coalition helicopters have flown over the area this morning then it followed by two explosions; the medium intensity explosion hit the 55-kilometre zone then it was followed by another violent and severe explosion, according to SOHR sources.

However, no further information has been reported on the causes behind the explosions, whether they were caused by coalition military exercises or it launched rockets from al-Nataf base, or by a new attack on its base.

 

On November 24, SOHR activists monitored that the United States forces stationed at al-Tanaf base in the 55-kilometre zone on Syria-Iraq-Jordan border triangle, launched four long-range missiles towards the west of its base. However, it is not known if the missiles hit Iran-backed militias’ positions or ISIS hideouts in Syrian desert and its surroundings.

This comes with flights by fighter jets of the International Coalition in the airspace of the 55-kilometre zone.

On November 18, SOHR sources reported that “Maghaweer al-Thawrah” group started military exercises this morning with live ammunition at al-Tanaf base in the 55-kilometre zone, near Syria-Iraq-Jordan border triangle, with the aim to raise combat readiness of the group’s members. It is worth noting that US forces participated in these drills.
