Coalition Forces Conduct Controlled Detonation in Syria

By CJTF-OIR Public Affairs

BAGHDAD, Iraq – On Dec. 26, 2022, Coalition Forces will be conducting a controlled detonation of unserviceable munitions near the al-Mayadin region in Syria.

Extensive planning and proper safety measures are taken before and during controlled detonations in order to protect the Coalition and the local population. Controlled detonations are performed in remote locations far away from the civilian populace for their safety. These operations ensure the Coalition’s continued capability to support our partner forces and protect our Coalition forces. 

Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve advises, assists, and enables partner forces to secure the lasting defeat of ISIS and to enable the establishment of enduring security cooperation framework.
