The US military said on Tuesday it carried out a strike in Syria’s Deir al-Zor against infrastructure facilities used by groups affiliated with Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), Reuters reported.

The military’s Central Command said in a statement such strikes were aimed at protecting US forces from attack by Iran-backed groups.

The statement cited an incident on August 15, which Reuters reported involved a drone attack on a compound run by coalition and US-backed Syrian opposition fighters, with no casualties.

The statement about Tuesday’s strike did not mention whether there were any casualties.

Though there is no indication of any connection, the statement comes a day after Iranian media outlets reported that Abolfazl Alijani, a senior member of the IRGC who served as a military adviser in Syria, had been killed.
