US Central Command Communication Director Colonel Joe Buccino noted the move was essential to ensuring ongoing safety in the region for “US personnel,” to stop any “escalation and minimize” casualties.
Deir Ezzor 24 reported 3 injuries and 10 deaths amongst the IRGC. The publication noted the strikes hit warehouses in Ayash, which suffered heavy damage. The buildings reportedly belonged to the Afghan Fatemiyoun militia, a group known to distribute weapons throughout the country. They were also military training sites.
During the attack in mid-August, multiple drones attempted to hit the Al-Tanf Garrison. The attack didn’t cause any casualties or notable damage because troops managed to take down most of the drones before they hit.
Major General John Brennan, the Combined Joint Task Force commander, said at the time such assaults put the military and nearby civilians in danger but the actions threaten the goal of maintaining peace in the region. The official warned local forces would protect themselves using “appropriate measures.”.
