"Targeting a base in which the Iraqi forces were deployed as they are fully
legally fighting against the ISIL in Syria means support for the terrorist
groups. The site that came under attack is still prone to infiltration of
terrorists into Iraq and is a threat to our national security," the statement
released by the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news channel said.
"This is not the first attack against Hashd al-Shaabi and is aimed at weakening the Iraqi forces against the Takfiri organizations," it added.
The statement underlined the necessity for standing against the plots against Iraq and Syria firmly.
The US-led coalition warplanes on Monday bombed a Syrian army base near the town of Albu Kamal in Southeastern Deir Ezzur in a move deemed as flagrant support for the ISIL terrorists who plan to attack the government forces in the region.
Syria's state news agency, SANA, quoted a military source as saying earlier today that the fighter jets bombed an army base in al-Harra settlement Southeast of the border town of Albu Kamal.
A number of forces were killed or wounded in the air raid, the news agency reported.
In the meantime, other sources reported that the aircraft were US drone which bombed the positions of the Syrian Army forces and Iraqi popular forces between Albu Kamal and al-Tanf region in Southern Homs.
