The US Central Command (CENTCOM) said on Monday that around 15 rockets were fired from Iraq at its Rumalyn Landing Zone in Syria, saying there were no injuries to personnel or damage to equipment.
“Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve located the point of origin with uncrewed ISR assets and passed the location to Iraqi Security Forces who moved to and investigated the site,” CENTCOM said in a statement.
It added that a fuel truck modified to launch up to 20 rockets was located at the site.
The United States is leading an international coalition against ISIS in Iraq and Syria under the name “Operation Inherent Resolve.”
On Sunday, Iraqi armed factions announced that they had targeted a base of US forces in Syria, saying the bombing was in response to the resumption of attacks on the Gaza Strip.
In a statement obtained by the Arab World News Agency, the factions said they launched a “barrage of rockets” at the Kharab al-Jeer base in northeastern Syria and hit directly their targets.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights noted the presence of a runway for the US military cargo planes and a helipad in Kharab al-Jeer base.
