US Forces based in Eastern Syria on Saturday came under suspected rocket fire with the Pentagon representative stating that there were no victims or any damage.

“I can confirm that we came under indirect fire in Conoco which is an oil and gas field in the Syrian province of Deir Ez-Zor, in the area of which the American base is located. At the moment, according to initial reports, there are no losses, injuries or damage to structures,” the US defence department said.

Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby, at a regular briefing on Thursday, expressed concern about recent attacks on U.S. bases in Syria and Iraq

The Syrian Agency SANA, citing local sources, reported on Saturday about the explosion at the gas processing plant of the company Conoco, located near the US military base.

According to the agency, the incident occurred before midnight local time. At the moment, it is not known what caused the explosion but there is suspicion that Iranian supported militias fired a number of rockets against the plant.
