The U.S. military has launched a new defense system at its military bases in northern and eastern Syria to prevent a possible attack by Iranian-backed militias.
According to news agencies, anti-drone air defense systems and surface-to-surface missiles have been deployed in the Al-Omar oil field in Deir al-Zour province.
The U.S. military said a car bomb had exploded at the Iraqi police recruiting center at Kisak, west of Baghdad.
Similarly, a better defense system will be implemented in all American arenas in northern and eastern Syria.
At least 20,000 people have been killed so far in fighting between Iranian-backed militias and US forces in Syria.
