U.S. Launches Airstrikes Against Iranian-Backed Groups In Syria
U.S. forces are in Syria to fight the Islamic State terrorist group. In July, the military said a U.S. airstrike in Syria killed a senior Islamic State leader, Maher al-Agal.
The U.S. military on Tuesday launched airstrikes against Iranian-backed groups in eastern Syria, the U.S. Central Command said in a statement.
At U.S. President Joe Biden’s direction, “U.S. military forces conducted precision airstrikes in Deir ez-Zor Syria today,” the statement said.
“The U.S. strikes targeted infrastructure facilities used by groups affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps,” it said.
