  • US-led coalition attacks Syrian Army in Homs province

US-led coalition launched missiles against Syrian army positions in the center of the country, Syria's state news agency said.

Iran PressMiddle East: “A military source said on Sunday that at around 8 PM, the US-led alliance forces fired several rockets at army positions in al-Ghurab mountain south of al-Sekhneh, causing only material damage,” the SANA News Agency reported, citing a military source. The area is located in Homs province.

The missiles were fired from the US military base near Syria's border with Iraq and Jordan, a source close to the government forces told DPA news agency.

US-led coalition invaded Syria without a United Nations mandate in 2014 under the pretext of defeating the Takfiri terror group of ISIS. It sustains its operations although Syria and its allies defeated the outfit late last year.

US troops have a base in Tanf in southern Syria near the Jordanian and Iraqi borders, and US troops are also in the country's north, near the border with Turkey.

US and its regional allies have also been providing support to the Takfiri terrorists. Israel is widely believed to have been providing weapons to anti-Damascus militants as well as medical treatment to Takfiri elements wounded in Syria inside the occupied Golan Heights.
