Three killed in U.S. drone attacks on village in Syria

Three people were killed and many were wounded when U.S. Air Force (Air Force) drones shelled a village in Syria. This was reported by the SANA news agency on Wednesday, July 21.

It is specified that the incident took place in the village of Khirbet Jamus in eastern Hassakeh, close to the border with Iraq.

Earlier, on July 20, Israeli Air Force planes attacked military factories located in the region of al-Safira, southeast of the Syrian city of Aleppo (360 kilometers from Damascus). It is noted that the strikes also targeted weapons depots belonging to pro-Iranian Shiite militias that are fighting on the side of the Syrian army. The Shia militias suffered casualties, but no further details were provided.

The Shiite militias are fighting on the side of the Syrian government army and assisting it in the fight against Islamic State terrorist gangs that have recently intensified in the border area.

The armed conflict in Syria has been going on since 2011. Cleansing of fighters continues in some parts of the country. The current focus is on a political settlement, the reconstruction of Syria and the return of refugees.
