The US military is looking into whether an American service member was involved in carrying out an April 7 attack on the Green Village base in eastern Syria that left four Americans wounded.

A service member is being investigated for possible involvement in a strike on a base.


A service member from the U.S. is currently in the U.S. and could be a suspect in the bomb attack.

The Army and Air Force are still investigating the attack, which may or may not lead to a conviction in a court of law, according to the spokesman.

The U.S.-led anti-Islamic State coalition said that investigators initially thought the attack came from outside the base, as is typical for mortar and rocket attacks in the region.

Military officials told CNN that the attack was carried out with a bomb that was more powerful than a grenade.

Security footage showed a figure moving quickly in two instances around the time of the attack, but it wasn't clear if it was the same person in both cases.

The four service members who were wounded returned to duty after being treated for their injuries.
