SYRIA: US Central Command says no troops were killed or wounded
Two rockets were fired at a US base in an occupied oil field in eastern Syria on Monday, according to US Central Command (CENTCOM).
“On March 13, at 8:23 pm local time in Syria, two rockets landed near Coalition Forces at Mission Support Site Green Village in northeast Syria,” CENTCOM said in a press release. The US base at Green Village is in Syria’s largest oil field, known as al-Omar.
CENTCOM said there were no casualties in the attack. “No US or Coalition troops were killed or wounded and there was no damage to Coalition infrastructure or equipment,” the command said.
The US has about 900 troops stationed in eastern Syria and backs the Kurdish-led SDF in the region, allowing the US to control about one-third of Syria’s territory. The area is where most of Syria’s oil fields are located, and the occupation is part of the US economic war against Damascus and the people living in government-controlled territories.
Several rocket attacks have targeted US bases in Syria this year, although there have been no casualties. Four US troops were wounded in a raid against ISIS in the country last month, prompting Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) to introduce a War Powers Resolution that would have ordered President Biden to withdraw from Syria.
Gaetz’s resolution was brought to the floor on March 8 and failed in a vote of 103-321, with 56 Democrats and 47 Republicans voting in favor of the bill. The Florida congressman vowed that the resolution wouldn’t be the end of his effort to end US involvement in Syria and in other conflicts.
