Earlier on Thursday, the U.S.-based Arabic-language news network Alhurra reported that a military drone had attacked a military convoy at the Syrian-Iraqi border as it entered Syria from Iraqi territory, citing an unidentified security source.
Following the attack, the Iranian-backed Hashed al-Shaabi paramilitary force reportedly closed the area surrounding the Iraqi border town of al-Qa'im near where the attack took place.
