Rocket Attack Hit Large US Airfield In Northeastern Syria

Illustrative image.

On November 23, a rocket attack targeted a large airfield of the US-led coalition located near the town of Khrab al-Jeer in the northeastern countryside of Syria’s al-Hasakah, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency.

The state-run agency said that five rockets struck the military airfield. The attack didn’t result in any casualties. US-led coalition fighter jets and helicopters were spotted flying over the airfield and nearby areas after the attack.

The US-led coalition first established Khrab al-Jeer airfield in 2016. Between 2019 and 2020, the airfield was drastically expanded.

The airfield has seven helipads and a 1,350-meter-long runway that is prepared to allow C-130 Hercules transport aircraft to take off and land with a fairly heavy load. Usually, two UH-60 Black Hawk utility helicopters and two AH-64 Apache attack helicopters are deployed at the airfield.

The US-led coalition and its main proxy in northeastern Syria, the Syrian Democratic Forces, have not commented on the alleged attack, so far.

A series of attacks targeted US military bases in Syria this year. The most recent attack hit al-Tanf garrison in the southeastern part of the country. Iran and its affiliates in Iraq and Syria were officially and unofficially blamed for many of these attacks.

Well it is a start I guess but all it will do will make the SDF flunkies do more patrol duty , especially at desert time.

Shooting on the invader who came to your country to rob, steal, murder and destroy is not attacking – its defending..

Peppe il Sicario

Attacking your enemies logistical facilities and transport means is probably the best and only way to conduct asymmetrical warfare in theatres like Iraq and Syria. A strong rear-guard action of constant sabotage will demoralize the invading troops and deprive them of tactical and strategic mobility rendering them sitting ducks to enemy fire.
