According to reports, a number of terrorists were killed, along with one civilian. Five civilians were injured in the attack.
Terrorists had also tried to stage two more attacks in the area during which they engaged in clashes with Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) militants.
Since 2016, the US has been training Free Syrian Army militants at its military base in al-Tanf to fight Daesh, however it has drawn a lot of criticism from Damascus.
The US-led coalition has been conducting airstrikes against Daesh targets in Syria since 2014 without a UN mandate or authorization from the Damascus government. Syria views their presence as a violation of the country's national sovereignty.
