US strikes targets in Iraq and Syria after Middle East drone attack kills three soldiers



U.S. warplanes unleashed a barrage of 85 strikes Friday against Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Force and militias in Iraq and Syria linked to Sunday's attack in Jordan that killed three soldiers.

The airstrikes used 125 precision munitions, according to U.S. Central Command. The targets included rockets, missiles, drones and logistics systems used by the militias to attack U.S. and its allies, as well as centers for command and control and intelligence,

''The United States does not seek conflict in the Middle East or anywhere else in the world,'' President Joe Biden said in a statement announcing the attacks. "But let all those who might seek to do us harm know this: If you harm an American, we will respond."

The strikes lasted about 30 minutes and targeted seven facilities – three in Iraq and four in Syria, said John Kirby, White House spokesman for national security issues.

Kirby said targets were carefully selected to avoid civilian casualties and were based on “a clear, irrefutable evidence that they were connected to the attacks on U.S. personnel” in the region.
