The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that Iranian backed groups “blew up the gas pipeline near the Conoco gas facility.”
US military bases in Syria and Iraq also came under attack over the last 24 hours, Ryder said, adding that the US was still assessing who was behind the recent attacks on US troops in the Middle East.
He said, “Clearly, this is an uptick in terms of the types of drone activity we’ve seen in Iraq and Syria.”
The Pentagon also said that a US civilian contractor suffered a “cardiac episode” whilst sheltering from the attack, the contractor died after early warning systems alerted to a possible threat approaching Ain al-Asad Air Base in Iraq.
