US air strikes on Iranian targets in Syria and Iraq

It is a response to drone strikes on US targets in Iraq, which are attributed to militias allied to Iran, the US Department of Defense said on Sunday (local time). “As demonstrated today, President Joe Biden has made it clear that he will act to protect US forces.”

The arsenal was used by a number of militant groups supported by Iran, including the Kata’ib Hezbollah and the Kata’ib Sajjid al-Schuhada. The Kata’ib Hezbollah is one of the most important militias in Iraq with ties to Iran. There were initially no reports of victims or injuries. (SDA)
