The United States on Friday carried out major airstrikes across Iraq and Syria, hitting 85 targets linked to Iran's Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) and the militias it backs, CNN reported. The 30-minute operation was in response to a drone attack by Iran-backed militias on a US military outpost in Jordan, which killed three US service members, the US military said. President Joe Biden emphasized that the US does not seek conflict but warns of a response.
