Damascus [Syria], December 14 (ANI/Sputnik): A US base near the Omar oil field in Deir Ez-Zor Province in northeastern Syria was subject to the rocket attack, Syrian pro-government newspaper Al-Watan reported, citing sources in the province.
After the attack, a plume of smoke was visible in the base area, the newspaper said.
The US military illegally controls territories in the north and northeast of Syria in the provinces of Deir Ez-Zor, Al-Hasakah and Raqqa, where the largest Syrian oil and gas fields are located.
Damascus has repeatedly called the presence of the US military on its territory occupation and state piracy with the aim of outright theft of oil. (ANI/Sputnik)
