Number of targeted attacks in Syria authorized by Biden
Reports from the United States military say President Joe Biden gave approval for a number of targeted attacks in Syria.
Reuters reported that the attacks targeted infrastructure used by militants connected to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
The United States Central Command issued the following statement: “These precision strikes are intended to defend and protect U.S. forces from attacks like the ones on August 15 against U.S. personnel by Iran-backed groups. The U.S. strikes targeted infrastructure facilities used by groups affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.”
