Did a convoy of Iranian backed militants and Hezbollahs got so full of themselves that they decided to go visit At-Tanaf, a joint US/UK special forces training camp at the Jordan/Iraqi border ?
They were lucky they only lost their lead vehical

And Isn't At-Tanaf the place the Russians bombed last June?

A related article from three days ago adds context:

Rumors of an American invasion of eastern Syria

Over the past 24 hours, social networks have been spreading rumors that a convoy of armored vehicles following from Jordan crossed the Syrian border in the area of ​​the Tanf checkpoint.

In the column, apart from Syrian rebels, allegedly are American and British commandos.

This was followed by reports that the Syrian army and pro-Iranian militia were heading to Tanf to establish control over the border.

The advancement of the Syrian troops and Hezbollah to the border alarmed the Jordanians. The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom Ayman Safadi said that Jordan would not tolerate their approach to the border.
.
At the base in Tanf, American instructors are training the Syrian rebels, and it is seen as a springboard for the subsequent throw to Deir ez-Zur.

There is evidence that the USA was massing equipment just inside the
Jordanian border and your enemies would have known that .
