A few hours ago, Iranian military and pro-Iranian military units controlled by them launched a large-scale attack against American mercenaries in northeastern Syria. According to official figures, the attack was carried out using small arms, heavy machine guns, and even anti-tank systems.
At the moment, the Avia.pro resource has unique video frames shot not far from the site of the attack on the positions of American mercenaries in the Konoko area. On them, you can see how American mercenaries launch lighting missiles to withstand attacks.
Light bombs were fired near Conoco field in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside after heavy gunfire from the Iranian militias in the same area.
Information about the victims, victims and property damage is not commented, however, according to several sources, the attack on the positions of American mercenaries could be related to the recent airstrike on the positions of Iranian military and pro-Iranian forces in the same area.
Experts do not exclude that an attack by Iranian military units may lead to a new round of aggravation of the situation, however, given the fact that we are talking about mercenaries and not the US regular army, we should not expect any escalation of the situation.
