CENTCOM reported that “three one-way attack drones [had] attacked the al-Tanf Garrison in Syria. Two of the drones were shot down by Coalition Forces while one struck the compound, injuring two members of the Syrian Free Army partner force… No U.S. forces were injured”. A spokesperson asserted that “attacks of this kind are unacceptable – they place our troops and our partners at risk and jeopardise the fight against ISIS”.
