According To The Pentagon, Biden Has Directed Airstrikes Against Iran-backed Militias In Iraq And Syria.


According to the Pentagon, President Joe Biden ordered airstrikes on Sunday against several facilities used by Iran-backed militia groups in Iraq and Syria in response to attacks on American military personnel in the region.

“The targets were chosen because these facilities are used by Iran-backed militias that conduct unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) attacks against US personnel and facilities in Iraq,” Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said in a statement.

The strikes, he said, were “necessary to address the threat and appropriately limited in scope.”
