American troops in Iraq and Syria have now been targeted over 100 times since Oct. 17, a US defense official told Al Arabiya English on Monday. “Between Oct. 17-Dec. 18, US and Coalition Forces have been attacked at least 101 times to date,” the official said. There have been 46 attacks in Iraq and another 55 in Syria involving one-way attack drones, rockets, mortars, and close-range ballistic missiles. The last reported attacks took place on Dec. 16 when two separate incidents involving one-way attack drones were launched at Mission Support Site Euphrates in Syria. A third attack targeted the same US base but with multiple rockets, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. Before that, multiple one-way attack drones were fired at US troops at Iraq’s AlAsad Airbase on Dec. 14. Another three attacks on American forces in Syria were recorded on Dec. 13. One-way attack drones targeted the Patrol Base Shaddadi as well as the Al-Tanf Garrison in Syria. The third attack involved a multirocket attack at Mission Support Site Euphrates. alarabiya
