The spokesperson for the US Central Command (CENTCOM) Colonel Joe Buccino disclosed on 13 April that 11 more US troops based in Syria have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury after a series of retaliatory strikes against illegal US bases in March.
According to CNN, Buccino affirmed that the US military’s medical teams are continuing to evaluate and assess their troops for indications of permanent and traumatic brain injuries.
The US personnel wounded in these attacks in Syria amount to 25 troops, including a US military contractor, who was killed at a facility in Syria’s northeastern Hasakah province on 23 March. Washington claims the perpetrators of the attack were affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
On the same day of the attack on the US base, US troops carried out “precision airstrikes” in eastern Syria. The presence of the US occupation forces in Syria is deemed illegal under international law.
According to a 30 March CNN report, six US soldiers had also been diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries as a result of attacks from Iran-backed groups in Syria….
