M142 HIMARS missiles have reinforced the US deployment in Deir Ezzor Governorate. It is located east of the Euphrates River and is controlled by the People’s Self-Defense Units (YPG/PKK). The launch pads have also reached the Al-Omar field and the Conoco gas station.
The United States decided to transfer the M142 HIMARS to Syria to reinforce its forces and counter attacks by Iranian-backed groups. It is located on the back side of the Euphrates River.
The US military was attacked several times by Iranian drones. For example, about two months ago, a drone bombed a facility in eastern Syria. The United States responded with F-15E Strike Eagle fighters.
