A U.S. soldier died in a noncombatant incident at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait, according to a press release from the U.S. Army.

Camp Arifjan, a U.S. Army installation located just south of Kuwait City, houses Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard personnel. The installation also hosts personnel from Australia, Canadia, Romania, Poland, and the U.K. 

The soldier’s death comes as U.S. bases in the Middle East are on high alert following Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack on Israel that killed around 1,200 people and injured hundreds of others.

In the months following, a broad coalition of militia groups backed by Iran have attacked U.S. targets more than 160 times for the U.S. support of Israel. 

Last month, three U.S. soldiers were killed in a drone attack on a U.S. military base in Jordan known as Tower 22, near the border with Syria and Iraq. More than 40 soldiers were killed in the attack.
