US and coalition forces in Iraq and Syria came under attack four separate times on Thanksgiving Day, according to a US official.
On Thursday morning, multiple one-way attack drones were launched against troops at Al-Asad Airbase, and one one-way attack drone targeted Erbil Airbase in Iraq. A multi-rocket attack was also launched against forces at Mission Support Site Euphrates in Syria. On Thursday afternoon, another one-way attack drone was launched against forces at Mission Support Site Green Village in Syria.
All four followed an attack on Wednesday afternoon, when a one-way attack drone was launched against Erbil Airbase, the official said.
There were no casualties or infrastructure damage reported in any of the attacks, according to the official.
The latest attacks mark at least 73 against US and coalition forces since October 17. They also follow a US air strike on Tuesday evening – Wednesday morning local time – on two facilities used by the Iranian-backed Kataib Hezbollah group in Iraq.
