U.S. Launches Airstrikes Against Iranian-Backed Militias in Iraq and Syria

The U.S. military launched a major air assault on dozens of sites in Iraq and Syria used by Iranian-backed militias and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Quds force on Friday. This action marks the opening salvo of retaliation for the drone strike that killed three U.S. troops in Jordan last weekend.

The strikes, involving manned and unmanned aircraft, hit over 85 targets, including command centers, intelligence facilities, and weapons storage sites. U.S. officials confirmed the operation but spoke anonymously due to its sensitive nature.

The assault came just hours after the remains of three U.S. soldiers killed in Jordan were returned home. It remains unclear what the next steps will be, but the U.S. has vowed to take all necessary actions to defend its interests and people.

The U.S. has blamed the Islamic Resistance in Iraq, a coalition of Iran-backed militias, for the Jordan attack. These groups have been a threat to U.S. bases for years, but their attacks intensified following the recent Israel-Hamas conflict.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin stated that "this is a dangerous moment in the Middle East," and the U.S. will respond forcefully to any further attacks.

The U.S. also conducted self-defense strikes in Yemen against Houthi military targets deemed an imminent threat. Additionally, the U.S. Treasury imposed new sanctions on Iranian firms and officials involved in weapons procurement and cyberattacks.
