No casualties or material damage have been reported as US CENTCOM has said the base was targeted by three rockets.

The United States Central Command (CENTCOM) said late Sunday that one of its bases in northeast Syria was targeted by a rocket attack, without casualties.

The statement read:

"At approximately 7:05 PM in Syria on September 18th, a rocket attack targeting the Green Village base in northeast Syria failed to strike US or Coalition forces or equipment. Three 107mm rockets targeted the base. A fourth rocket along with rocket tubes was found at the launch point, approximately 5 kilometers away."

The Green Village military base that houses US and coalition forces is located in Deir ez-Zor province, within a territory controlled by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

No group has yet claimed the attack on the base.

Previously on 25 August, CENTCOM announced that four suspected fighters of an Iran-backed militia in northeast Syria were killed in response to an attack a day earlier, which targeted the US forces’ Mission Support Site Conoco and Mission Support Site Green Village.
