Iranian-backed group claims attack on US base in Syria’s Shaddadi

HASAKAH, Syria (North Press) – The so-called Islamic Resistance in Iraq, Iranian-backed militia, claimed on Sunday responsibility for targeting a US base in northeast Syria with drone strikes.

The group said on its official media outlet that it launched the attack against the US base in Shaddadi, south of Hasakah, northeast Syria, using two drones.

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq has carried out a series of attacks against US military bases in Syria since the beginning of the war between Hamas an Israel.

The group said that the attack has achieved its goals directly.

On Saturday, US President Joe Biden said that his country is ready to take more measures as a response to the attacks that the Iranian-backed groups are carrying out against US bases in Syria and Iraq.

For his part, Iran’s Foreign Minister, Hussein Amir Abdullahian, has warned that new fronts will be opened against the US if it continues to support Israel in its war on the Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

On Oct. 28, the group claimed responsibility for targeting al-Tanaf US military base, on the Syrian-Iraqi border.
