The US Army Central Command said in a statement that 15 122 mm missiles were launched from Iraq on Sunday, December 3, at the landing area of the US “Rumalin” base in Syria.
According to the statement, there were no injuries to employees or damage to equipment.
The statement added that the Joint Task Force - Operation Resolve identified the bombing point and transferred the site to the Iraqi security forces, who moved to the site and investigated it, noting that a fuel truck was found at the site that had been modified to launch up to 20 missiles.
On Sunday, December 3, a security source reported to Shafaq News Agency that missiles were launched from the Rabia district, west of Mosul, towards Syrian territory, at a time when reports indicated that an American base in Syria had been targeted.
For its part, the "Islamic Resistance in Iraq" announced, on the same day, that the American "Kharab al-Jir" base in northeastern Syria was targeted with a "rocket salvo."
In this context, Al-Mayadeen channel, which is close to the "resistance" factions, reported that several explosions were heard inside the international coalition base at Kharab al-Jir airport, north of Hasakah.
We kill Al-Mayadeen, citing sources, saying, “The resistance factions targeted Kharab al-Jir Airport with 7 rocket shells, without information about the extent of the losses.”
She added, "The targeting took place hours after military cargo planes landed inside the base carrying logistical equipment and weapons to American bases in Syria."
Meanwhile, the US Ambassador to Iraq, Elena Romanowski, commented on the bombing that targeted members of the "Al-Nujaba" movement, one of the armed Shiite factions, which resulted in the deaths of 5 of them. She said, "Accurate information is extremely important."
The ambassador stated in a post on the “X” website, “We are re-sending this statement regarding taking military measures in self-defense against the militias responsible for the attacks on Iraqi bases that host personnel from the United States and the international coalition.”
On the evening of the third Sunday of December, a security source informed Shafaq News Agency that at least 5 casualties were caused by an American air strike that targeted the headquarters of one of the armed factions in Iraq.
The source said, "It has not yet been determined whether the strike was by a drone or an aerial missile strike, and it was not possible to determine the exact location of the strike," noting that "preliminary information indicates that there were 5 victims as a preliminary toll."
Later, the Al-Nujaba Movement, led by Akram Al-Kaabi, announced in a brief statement received by Shafaq News Agency that “5 members of the movement were killed as a result of an American air strike in Kirkuk.”
The US Central Command confirmed yesterday, Monday, that forces assigned to the Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve (CJTF-OIR) with five militants were preparing to launch an attack drone in one direction.
"CJTF-OIR forces responded in self-defense with an armed US drone aerial system, killing all five militants and destroying the drone," he added.
He pointed out that "the Iraqi security forces were notified of the strike and responded to the site, confirming the death of the militants and the destruction of the drone."
The armed Shiite factions escalated their attacks on the military bases of the international coalition forces led by the United States of America in Iraq and Syria after the events of October 7 in Palestine (the Al-Aqsa flood).
