US airstrikes in Syria target Iran-backed militia

Feb 26, 2021 14:38 IST | By AP

In its first military action since Joe Biden took over as President, the United States has carried out airstrikes in Syria targeting facilities near the Iraqi border used by Iranian-backed militia groups. The Pentagon said the strikes were retaliation for a rocket attack in Iraq earlier this month that killed one civilian contractor and wounded a US service member and other coalition troops. The US govt said the airstrikes “destroyed multiple facilities at a border control point used by a number of Iranian- backed militant groups”.
