(Worthy News) – Four Iranian-backed militia members were killed in US strikes in Syria on Wednesday in response to attacks by the group in recent weeks, the US military said Thursday.
In a statement, US Central Command said US forces also destroyed seven enemy rocket launchers on Wednesday, hours after militia fighters fired rockets at two US military installations in northeast Syria. Central Command provided additional details about the strikes on Thursday, saying they were done with Apache helicopters, AC-130 gunships and M777 Howitzers.
The latest spike in attacks came after militias backed by Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard targeted US troops on August 15 at the al-Tanf Garrison in the south. There were no casualties or damage in that attack. But, in response, the US struck bunkers and facilities used by the militias. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More…) ]
