`According to President Joe Biden’s instructions, the US military has airstrikes on the infrastructure of Iran-backed militia groups in eastern Syria. The operation is in response to recent attacks on US forces

This is Washington’s first retaliatory move after a series of rocket attacks targeting US diplomatic and military facilities in Iraq, and is also the first time President Biden has ordered an air strike since taking office.

The airstrike destroyed multiple facilities located at a border control point controlled by the Kataib Hezbollah and Kataib Sayyid al-Shuhada militia groups.

The US military said the airstrike was conducted in conjunction with diplomatic measures, including consultations with allies in the region.

US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin confirmed that the airstrike target was the base of militia groups that attacked US forces and allies in Iraq.

An anonymous US official said the air force’s F-15 fighters carried out the attack.

`The target is located in the Syria-Iraq border area, at a key gateway often used by Iranian gunmen to enter Iraq. The Russian military controls the airspace there,` Fox News reporter Jennifer Griffin quoted.

There is no sign that the US informed Russia about the airstrike on the evening of February 25 via the hotline to relieve tension in Syria.

`The air strike was timed to destroy infrastructure such as command centers and logistics warehouses, instead of causing casualties. This is a counter-attack aimed at Iran and its proxy forces in the region.`

Civilian navigation systems recorded the appearance of an E-11A BACN battlefield communications relay aircraft in the airspace of eastern Syria before the airstrike.

`The information that has been released about the planning and execution of air strikes is very interesting. The Biden administration wants to retaliate against those who attacked the Erbil base and send a message to Iran, but do it in a way

Trump often does not notify allies and partners when ordering air strikes on targets in Syria.

It is impossible to predict the reaction of Iran and militia groups in the Middle East to US air strikes.
