US Airstrike In Syria Kills 1, Wounds Several
On Thursday, the US carried out an airstrike in Syria targeting an Iran-backed militia. The Pentagon said the strikes were retaliation for the three rocket attacks against US forces in Iraq, earlier this month.
Said Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, "I'm confident in the target that we went after, we know what he hit."
The strike, which resulted in 1 death and several injuries, was the first military action ordered by President Biden.The goal of the strike was to limit or end the militia's ability to conduct future attacks.
