US admits 24 soldiers wounded in attacks on Iraq, Syria bases
The US Central Command admits to a couple dozen wounded and some material damages as a result of the most recent attacks targeting its occupation military bases in Syria and Iraq.
The US Central Command told NBC News, on Tuesday, that 24 US soldiers have been wounded as a result of the attacks targeting its occupation bases in Syria and Iraq over the past week.
According to a report by NBC News, the US servicemen were wounded on October 18th following the drone attack on the al-Tanf occupation military base in southeastern Syria, where reportedly 20 soldiers were wounded. Moreover, the attack on Ain al-Assad occupied Airbase in western Iraq on the same night resulted in four more injuries as well as material damage.
The US Central Command also told the news outlet that the 24 service members who were considered wounded have since returned to active duty.
US set to deploy air defense systems to protect regional interests
As the tension across the Arab world intensifies and given that US interests have been directly threatened if a regional war explodes, the United States has sought to deploy about a dozen air defense systems.
According to The Wall Street Journal, which referenced US defense officials, the US military has been seeking to deploy at least 12 air defense systems prior to the Israeli ground invasion into Gaza that has been allegedly anticipated to take place later this month.
It is important to note that "Israel" has been warned by various groups coordinating together as part of the Axis of Resistance that in the event of a ground invasion into the Gaza Strip, the war will expand to entail multiple fronts, noting that all US bases in the region will also be prone to attacks.
The US Defense Department has allegedly brought forth, from Fort Bliss, Texas, a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) battery for use against ballistic missiles to be stationed in Saudi Arabia.
Moreover, at least 11 MIM-104 Patriot surface-to-air missile systems were transferred from both Fort Liberty, North Carolina, and Fort Sill, Oklahoma to be stationed in Kuwait, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.
