The military hit 85 targets linked to the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Tehran-backed militants.

The US military launched airstrikes against Iranian targets in Iraq and Syria in response to a militant attack on a US base that killed three service members. CNN reported this on Friday, February 2.

The US carried out major airstrikes on Friday against 85 targets in Iraq and Syria, likely the start of a series of larger US strikes against Iran-backed militias that have carried out attacks on US troops in Middle East.

The publication cited a statement from the US Central Command, which stated that the armed forces hit more than 85 targets using multiple aircraft, including long-range bombers, which flew from the United States. More than 125 precision-guided munitions were used in the airstrikes.

Targets include command and control operations centers, intelligence centers, missile and drone storage facilities, and logistics and ammunition supply chain facilities for militia groups and their IRGC sponsors that have facilitated attacks on US and U.S. forces. of the coalition.

It was learned that the strikes were carried out in response to drone and missile attacks in the region, particularly the shelling on Sunday.

Let’s recall that on the night of January 28, as a result of a drone air strike on the American military base in Jordan, at least three US military personnel died and many were injured. After that, Republicans called on Biden to strike Iran. Meanwhile, Iran denies any involvement in the attack on the US base.
