Al-Dhafra has about 2,000 US troops.

Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that the US military “responded to an inbound missile threat on the UAE. This includes the use of Patriot interceptors for the efforts of the United Arab Emirates Armed Forces,” said Psaki. At the Pentagon, press secretary John Kirby said, “The American patriots were fired, but it was the Emirati surface-to-air missiles that really hit the targets.” “The US will have the backs of our friends in the region,” he said, also referring to the attack.
