Deir Ezzor province: Iranian-backed groups renewed their attacks on the US base in Syria after having been suspended their attacks for nearly a week.


In this context, Iranian-backed groups fired four missiles which hit the vicinity of the US base in Koniko gas field in northern Deir Ezzor countryside, where several explosions were heard in the region.
