Read Time:1 Minute, 6 Second

The United States responded to a surge in attacks on bases housing its troops by conducting an airstrike on a weapons warehouse in eastern Syria. The strike specifically targeted a facility used by Iranian-backed militias, known to be associated with Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.

Prioritizing Personnel Safety: Militias

Directed by President Joe Biden, the operation aimed to underscore the U.S.’ commitment to defending its personnel and interests. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin emphasized that the President’s top priority is the safety of U.S. personnel.

Deliberate and Deconflicted: Militias

The precision strike, executed by two U.S. F-15 fighter jets, was a deliberate effort to disrupt and degrade the capabilities of groups responsible for recent attacks on U.S. forces. The military used a deconfliction phone line to inform Russian forces in Syria, ensuring a coordinated approach and avoiding escalation.

Ongoing Response to Attacks: Militias

This marks the second instance in less than two weeks that the U.S. has targeted facilities used by these militant groups. The Islamic Resistance in Iraq umbrella, responsible for over 40 attacks since October 17, remains a focal point of these retaliatory actions.
