Rocket attacks near al-Shaddadi, Syria  

TAMPA, Fla. – Two rockets targeted coalition forces at the US patrol base in al-Shaddadi, Syria, today at approximately 10:31 p.m. local time in Syria (4:31 p.m. EST). 

The attack resulted in no injuries or damage to the base or coalition property. 

Syrian Democratic Forces visited the rocket origin site and found a third unfired rocket. 

"Attacks of this kind place coalition forces and the civilian populace at risk and undermine the hard-earned stability and security of Syria and the region," said Col. Joe Buccino, CENTCOM spokesman.
