A member of the U.S. military died in Syria on Wednesday, according to a new report. The person, who was only identified as a "service member," may have died from natural causes, U.S. Central Command said in a brief press release.

It was the second "non-combat related casualty" in as many months for a member of Operation Inherent Resolve, which was formed to "militarily defeat DA'ESH," another name for the Islamic State group, which is more commonly known as ISIS.

The latest non-combat death came in Northern Syria, where U.S.-led coalition forces were battling ISIS fighters who said a nearby dam was expected to be breached soon, according to NBC News.

Dozens of military strikes against the Islamic State were ongoing in the region, including 20 in Syria that destroyed ISIS well heads, barges and vehicles, according to the Department of Defense.

Another service member in Operation Inherent Resolve died a non-combat related death in Iraq on Feb. 20. Like Wednesday's death, details were not immediately available in that case.

The first American soldier who was killed in combat in Syria died on Thanksgiving Day last year, also in the northern part of the Middle eastern country. The soldier was a member of the Special Operations Forces and was the victim of an improvised explosive device near Ayn Issa, the New York Times reported in late November.

"The entire counter-ISIL Coalition sends our condolences to this hero's family, friends and teammates," Lt. Gen. Stephen J. Townsend, commander of Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve, said at the time. "On this Thanksgiving, please be thankful that there are service members willing to take up the fight to protect our homeland from ISIL's hateful and brutal ideology."

About 400,000 Syrians have died in the ongoing Syrian Civil War, which began in 2011. The conflict paved the way for the Syrian refugee crisis, which displaced millions of Syrians and sent them to nations around the world to escape the violent war.

ISIS has slowly but surely lost its territory in the country as coalition forces bear down on the terror group. U.S. defense officials have been pushing to deploy additional American troops to Syria, where there were already about 500 Special Operations forces, 250 rangers and 200 Marines.
