The United States Central Command (Centcom) stated Saturday night that one of its occupation camps in Syria was targeted, amid tensions over the unlawful presence of US forces on the Arab country's land.
Centcom stated in a statement published early Sunday morning that "There were no deaths or injuries among US or allied personnel, and no facilities or equipment were destroyed. Additional missiles were discovered near the launch location."
According to a statement from US Central Command, a 107mm rocket was fired targeting international forces at the Rumalyn landing zone at 22H12 local time Saturday in Hasakah province in northeastern Syria.
