ETANA Al Tanf.jpg

Al Tanf is an illegal US base sitting in Syria on the border to Jordan and Iraq. It is said to host around 200 US Soldiers. It has declared a 55 km "safe zone" around the base, and is said to host training camps for ISIS "moderate rebels". At the map to the right you can see "ETANA" labeling that zone as controlled by "Syrian Opposition Forces", muting the fact that a US base is in the center of that zone.

The support base Tower22 was hit by some kind of strike in late January 2024, causing some US Soldiers to die and dozens to get injured.
