Prime News, International, Defence, Militant Group, Washington (USA), June 28:- The United States military, under the direction of President Joe Biden, conducted airstrikes Sunday (June 27) against what it said were “facilities used by Iran-backed militia groups” near the border between Iraq and Syria.
Kirby said the US military targeted three operational and weapons storage facilities — two in Syria and one in Iraq.
He described the airstrikes as “defensive,” saying they were launched in response to an “ongoing series of attacks by Iran-backed groups targeting US interests in Iraq.”
“The United States took necessary, appropriate, and deliberate action designed to limit the risk of escalation — but also to send a clear and unambiguous deterrent message,” Kirby said. (MR, Inputs: Agencies)
