Which ip location database dose cloudflare used?

I have setup a rule in firewall to prevent user outside US from accessing my server. But I found one user with Ireland IP (2a03:2880:10ff:1::face:b00c) was not blocked by firewall. I have look up the address on IP2Location and it says it’s an Ireland IP address. So I wonder which IP location address dose Cloudflare used? Why it cannot block that IP address.

By any chance do your Firewall rules allow bots? Because this IP belongs to Facebook IE.

If you run a traceroute to that IP address, it seems to be located in the United States. Probably Facebook’s Altoona, Iowa data center.

Unless they’re using anycast and announcing it from multiple locations.
