Biden Orders Air Strikes On Iranian Backed Militias In Syria by blamingthedevil: 3:43am On Feb 26, 2021
The US military struck a site in Syria on Thursday used by two Iranian-backed militia groups following rocket attacks on American forces in the region in the past two weeks,” CNN reports.

“The strikes mark the military’s first known action under President Joe Biden. The site was not specifically tied to the rocket attacks, but were believed to be used by Iranian-backed Shia militias operating in the region.”
The U.S. military carried out an airstrike against an Iranian-backed militia stronghold in Syria Thursday, a senior official told Fox News.

In the first known military action by President Biden, multiple facilities were struck by American F15 fighter jets that targeted Iraqi border-based Shia militia groups, Kait’ib Hezbollah and Kait’ib Sayyid al Shuhada.

Both forces are suspected of having received funding and military support from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard.


The senior official said the strike was "shot across the bow" and a defensive strategy, intended to deter Iran and its militia from launching rockets at U.S. forces in the region, like the recent attacks in Iraq.

The Defense Department later confirmed the strikes.

"These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against American and coalition personnel in Iraq, and to ongoing threats to those personnel," Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said Thursday.

Two rockets landed within the U.S.’s Green Zone in Baghdad Monday, falling near the U.S. embassy and marking the third attack of its kind within a week.

The Green Zone is several miles wide and houses the U.S. embassy and other government buildings.

Though Monday’s strike reported no causalities, a rocket fired in Erbil, Iraq last week killed several people, including an American service member and several American contractors.

"We are outraged by the recent attacks," State Department spokesman Ned Price said Monday.

"When it comes to our response, we will respond in a way that is calculated, within our own timetable, and using a mix of tools at a time and place of our choosing," he added. "What will not do is lash out and risk an escalation that plays into the hands of Iran and contributes to their attempts to further destabilize Iraq."

The Pentagon said the defensive strike Thursday was conducted with diplomatic support and in coordination with coalition partners.

The airstrike was was timed to avoid large scale casualties and targeted a command hub. The extent of the damage and casualities hit will be known after a bomb assessment is complete, security officials told Fox News.


"The operation sends an unambiguous message -- President Biden will act to protect American coalition personnel," Kirby told reporters Thursday.

"At the same time, we have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to deescalate the overall situation in both Eastern Syria and Iraq," he added.

What concerns Israel here

All your plans against Israel since 1948 have been failing and will continue to fail.

I still wonder why you people don't get tired of terrorism

Let the srike come from Iranian territory then you'll see what will happen. Iran knows this that's why they're using proxies. Even Russia won't interfere if the strike comes from Iran. What did Iran do when their top scientist was assassinated by Isreal? They threatened fire and brimstone, yet, nothing happened. And as for Hezbollah turning Israel into a graveyard, that's just a pipe dream. Israel is capable of talking on Iran nuke for nuke. Besides, their air defense system is one of the best if not the best in the world.
