US reportedly begins retaliatory strikes in Iraq and Syria


Daily Caller News Foundation

The U.S. has begun retaliatory strikes on targets in Iraq and Syria after the deaths of three U.S. service members at the hands of Iran-backed militant groups, according to multiple reports.

A full spectrum of large-scale counterattacks will likely take place over several days, according to media reports. Friday’s attacks on targets in Iraq and Syria, according to CNN, citing two U.S. officials,  are the first wave of retaliation for the 3 U.S. service members who died in an attack by the self-style Islamic Resistance in Iran on Sunday, impacting a military base in Jordan.

The U.S. targeted multiple locations throughout the Middle East with multiple weapons platforms, Fox News reported. Reuters also reported that strikes had begun, citing three U.S. officials. President Joe Biden ordered the strikes in response to the attack that struck Tower 22 in Jordan, killing 3 U.S. Army Reserve soldiers and injuring more than 40, Politico reported.

The Pentagon did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
