ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) on Tuesday successfully located several mortars and rocket launchers during a combing operation close to the village of Adla, south of the town of Shadadi.

“This operation was initiated in response to a series of rocket attacks targeting one of our joint bases between our forces and our partners in the coalition,” the SDF said in a statement

“It is worth noting that the rockets not only targeted the joint military (US-SDF) bases but also impacted neighboring villages near Shadadi town, posing a threat to civilian safety,” the statement added.

On Monday, the heavily populated villages of al-Hammad and al-Hariri in the vicinity of Shadadi town were subjected to the attacks.

“Our forces affirm that they will not hesitate to pursue and arrest these terrorists, to preserve the security and safety of the people and our joint bases and protect them from any threats to their areas,” the SDF said.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on Monday that three rockets hit two villages near Shadadi’s joint SDF-Coalition base in southern Al-Hasakah.

Since Oct. 19, the SOHR has documented 52 attacks carried out by Iran-backed armed groups on Coalition bases in different areas across Syria amidst the war between Hamas and Israel.
