WASHINGTON - The united state military states surges earlier this month on a base in eastern Syria that injured several U.S. solution participants were not, as it originally reported, caused by weapons or another form of indirect fire.

Instead, it is currently believed the April 7 attack was carried out by the "purposeful placement of explosive charges" by several people at an ammunition holding location as well as shower center on the base, according to a declaration issued Thursday by the Operation Inherent Willpower command that oversees united state military operations against the Islamic State team in Syria and also Iraq.

The declaration claimed the event is under examination however provided no other information. The recommendation to "intentional placement" of explosive costs on the base appeared to elevate the possibility of infiltration as well as a gap of base safety and security.

In its original announcement on April 7, the command claimed the base, called Green Village, received two rounds of indirect fire that struck 2 assistance structures. 4 service members were being reviewed for minor injuries and feasible distressing brain injuries.
