The statement said: “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,” US Centcom added.

The Green Village base was targeted last month in violence between the US military and Iran-backed militants leaving at least one U.S. military service member in Syria with a minor injury, the Reuters reported.
