The U.S. military carried out an airstrike against an Iranian-backed militia stronghold in Syria Thursday, a senior U.S. official told Fox News.
Multiple facilities were struck in the air attack, which was sanctioned by President Biden.
The senior official said the strike was a defensive strategy, intended to halt and deter future rocket attacks by the militia group that recently hit Baghdad and Erbil.

That’s all they had to say about it.
well, four years of peace officially over. But no more mean tweets, right?
If true, does this mean Biden is not successful at singing Kumbaya and doing mindfulness thought vibration emanations and has restored to ———violence?
Let’s plan antiwar demonstrations-—when the weather is nicer.
John Kerrey deeply saddened.
They seriously said an attack on Syria was to prevent an attack in Iraq?
Where is the anti war protest going to be at (Sarc).
Looks like Obama is back in charge of the Presidency.
Sanctioned by Biden is a lot different than ordered by Biden. In other words, the military or someone else decided to do this and Biden was told to go along. I could care less anymore. Our military is also hopelessly corrupt at the highest levels just like every other rotten part of our government.
Heeeeeeeeeeere we go!
Do you think DOD acted on their own? No Biden approval?
Are Turkish forces still in that area as well? I stopped paying attention to Syria...
The Left has no clue how to use power. When it comes to our
military, they are hopelessly lost in space. It’s blood
curdling to think of them in charge.
And using the “5 whys?” from Sakichi Toyoda, the whole Iranian army wasn’t in Syria like today until we launched ISIS to overthrow Assad and install a Sunni/Wahabbist government.
Looks like the Generals are back in charge and time for Biden to wag the dog and we are back to overthrowing Assad.
Liz Cheney having multiple Os over this.
When our ISIS Sunnis had giant convoys or shiny new Toyotas running wild everywhere, right in MSRs, in broad daylight, not a peep. That should have looked like the Stukas over Dunkirk, or the Gulf War highway of death.
It didn’t and no Generals or intel CIA types complained. Why? Because it was their boys.
But if anybody shoots at ISIS and Syrian Rebels and FSA, we bomb them. Syrian Army, Iranian militias, Russians, it doesn’t matter. If you at=re a threat to the Sunni A-holes, you get bombed.
And THAT tells you all you need to know.
The Left gives peace a chance. About a month.
Paging Cindy Sheehan.
No more getting Americans involved in Mohammadan wars in the Middle East.
Remember when Trump got elected the left was saying he’ll get us into. War.
1 month of Biden, check it out.
