Following a drone attack that resulted in the death of 18 fighters, the United States military carried out retaliatory air strikes on Iranian soldiers and militia groups in Iraq and Syria on Friday. These strikes were carried out in response to an attack on an American post in Jordan that was carried out by a drone.

The United States of America placed the blame for the drone attack that occurred on Sunday on troops that were supported by Iran.

However, in reaction, the United States did not strike the territory of Iran. This was done in an effort to prevent other attacks while avoiding an all-out conflict with Tehran, which is something that both sides have been trying to avoid.

In the Middle East or anywhere else in the world, the United States of America does not make an effort to provoke conflict. But let everyone who might want to hurt us know that we will take action if you hurt an American, he continued. “If you hurt an American, we will respond.”

American forces hit “more than 85 targets,” with several aircraft to include long-range bombers launched from the United States, according to a statement released by the United States Central Command (CENTCOM). The strikes targeted the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as well as “affiliated militia groups.”

“The airstrikes employed more than 125 precision munitions,” CENTCOM said, adding that the targets included command and control and intelligence centers as well as rocket, missile, and drone storage facilities belonging to militia groups and Iranian forces “who facilitated attacks against US and coalition forces.”

CENTCOM also stated that the targets included drones, rocket batteries, and missile storage facilities.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the conflict in Syria, reported that the strikes resulted in the deaths of at least 18 pro-Iranian fighters.


John Kirby, a spokesperson for the National Security Council, stated to the media that the strikes lasted approximately thirty minutes, despite the fact that they required the B-1 bombers that participated in the operation to travel a considerable distance after departing from the United States.

However, he stated that the United States believes the assaults were effective and made it clear that such raids will be carried out in the future. He also stated that the Defense Department is still reviewing the damage that was caused by the strikes, which targeted dozens of targets at seven different installations.

According to Rami Abdel Rahman, the head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, at least 26 important facilities in Syria that housed pro-Iranian factions were destroyed. These sites included weapons stores.

AFP was informed by two Iraqi security sources that attacks on a weapons storage and a command center belonging to pro-Iranian organizations were carried out in western Iraq, along the border with Syria. These attacks resulted in at least “some injuries.”

Previous attacks have resulted in the injuries of dozens of American service members. Many of these attacks have been claimed by a loose coalition of armed organizations with ties to Iran. This coalition is opposed to the United States’ assistance for Israel in the Gaza conflict and wants American forces to leave the region.

In the meantime, Huthi rebels in Yemen, who are supported by Iran, started attacking international shipping in November. This prompted air strikes by the United States and the United Kingdom, which were intended to reduce their capacity to hit commercial vessels.
