Two areas in northern Syria were struck by rocket fire.
US Central Command stated Wednesday that three American soldiers were injured in rocket attacks in Syria presumably carried out by Iran-backed terrorists.
This latest attack on American personnel was directed by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, according to U.S. officials.
The Syrian military said late Wednesday night that missiles had struck two separate places in the northeastern part of the country starting at 7:30 p.m. local time.
At first, some rockets fell in the vicinity of Mission Support Site Conoco, and then, some time later, others landed in the neighborhood of Mission Support Site Green Village.
Two more military personnel are being evaluated for minor injuries at Conoco, while one has been treated and returned to duty.
According to the release, military personnel from the United States responded to the strikes by using assault helicopters.
The response destroyed three missile-launching trucks and equipment. First reports say two or three militants were killed.
In preparation for the latest round of attacks, American forces carried out airstrikes in the middle of the night in the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor.
IRGC infrastructure was attacked. Recent assaults on American forces in Syria by Iran-backed terrorists conveyed a message to Tehran, according to authorities. The 15th was one.
