Pentagon Investigates if US Service Member Deliberately Set Off Explosive That Injured Four American Troops in Syria

A U.S. service member has been identified as a possible suspect in an April explosion that injured several U.S. troops at a base in eastern Syria.

Patrick Barnes, a spokesman for the Army Criminal Investigation Division, said in a statement that the potential suspect is back in the United States.

He said the investigation by Army CID and the Air Force Office of Special Investigations is ongoing.

Barnes did not release the suspect’s name.

The U.S. military initially reported that the injuries from the April 7 attack on the Green Village base, in Deir ez Zor province, were caused by artillery or another form of indirect fire.
