The largest United States Military base in Syria was targeted by several missiles on Wednesday.
The base at the Conoco Oil Fields in the Deir Ezzor Governorate region in eastern Syria was targeted by at least three missiles, according to Al-Masdar News via ZeroHedge.com. None of the missiles landed on target to hit the base, indicating that the antagonists were fairly untrained in using the equipment effectively or did not intend to connect.
No group or entity claimed responsibility while the U.S. Coalition forces and their allies from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have been facing heavy opposition recently from the Arab tribes inside the region.
The Syrian Democratic Forces and Al-Akidat Tribe recently clashed along the eastern bank of the Euphrates River, which escalated tensions and hostilities among the other tribes in the region who allegedly got involved.
The Arab tribe theory explains the fact that all of the missiles were not on target and no relative damage was sustained to the base.
The fact that the Trump administration has just signed a historic peace deal with the United Arab Emirates and it has been reported from the White House that other countries in the region are on board to counter Iran, the failed missile attack could also be seen an effort to disrupt peace negotiations and derail President Trump’s successes going into the election.
Last week, the U.S. Department of Justice reported the largest ever seizure of terrorist cryptocurrency accounts. Forfeiture complaints and a criminal complaint dismantled three terrorist financed cyber-enabled campaigns, involving the al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’s military wing, al-Qaeda, and Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) that totaled more than $2 million.
The Syrian terrorist organizations operated a bitcoin money laundering network using Telegram channels and other social media platforms to solicit cryptocurrency donations to further their terrorist goals. In some instances, they purported to act as charities when, in fact, they were openly and explicitly soliciting funds for violent terrorist attacks. For example, one post from a charity sought donations to equip terrorists in Syria with weapons.
