U.S. fighter jets launched airstrikes in eastern Syria, early Friday. The sites were linked to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, the Pentagon said, in retaliation for recent drone and missile attacks against U.S. bases and personnel last week.
A senior U.S. military official stated, the strikes were carried by two F-16 fighter jets near Boukamal. They targeted weapons and ammunition storage areas that were connected to the IRGC. According to the official, there had been Iranian-aligned militia and IRGC personnel on the base and no civilians, but the U.S. does not have any information yet on casualties or an assessment of damage.
