Biden Orders Airstrike Against Iranian-Backed Groups in Syria

Yesterday, President Biden ordered an air strike against Iranian-backed groups in Syria. The air strikes conducted by the U.S. military targeted Iranian-backed groups in Syria. The strikes targeted ‘infrastructure facilities used by groups affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.’ The strike was intended to target 11 bunkers used for ammunition storage and logistics support by Iranian-backed groups in Syria but the military waved off two of the bunkers because of a small group of people nearby and targeted only nine bunkers in the complex. The goal of the strike was to destroy the bunkers and no one was killed. Currently, the U.S. maintains approximately 900 troops in Syria.
