According to sources, a U.S. military man has been detained on suspicion of participation in a series of insider attacks against coalition troops.
A U.S. military man is under investigation for allegedly carrying out an insider assault on a U.S. facility in Syria in April, which resulted in the injury of four personnel. The Army’s Criminal Probe Division and the Air Force Office of Special Investigations are conducting the investigation. The four wounded military men were checked for “minor injuries and the possibility of traumatic brain damage.” The Inspector general reports that the number of insider assaults had started to decline by 2021. By the end of 2020, no insider attacks or losses from such assaults have occurred among U.S. and coalition personnel.
A member of the Army National Guard was suspected of detonating three hand grenades and a Claymore mine in 2005. In the 2003 assault, a soldier from the 101st Airborne Division was engaged. Every defendant is deemed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
