The U.S. military conducted airstrikes on two facilities in eastern Syria in response to ongoing attacks against American military personnel in Iraq and Syria.

The strikes targeted weapons and ammo storage areas used by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and affiliated groups.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin stated that the attacks by Iranian proxies are unacceptable and the U.S. will take further measures to protect its people if they continue.

Austin said the “Iranian-backed attacks” on American forces are “unacceptable and must stop.”

“Iran wants to hide its hand and deny its role in these attacks against our forces. We will not let them,” Austin said.

“If attacks by Iran’s proxies against U.S. forces continue, we will not hesitate to take further necessary measures to protect our people.”

“They are separate and distinct from the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, and do not constitute a shift in our approach to the Israel-Hamas conflict,” Austin said.

“We continue to urge all state and non-state entities not to take action that would escalate into a broader regional conflict.”

“[Biden] directed today’s action to make clear that the United States will not tolerate such attacks and will defend itself, its personnel, and its interests,” Austin said.

The airstrikes are not connected to the Israel-Hamas conflict, and Israel was not informed of the plan.

The U.S. military remains prepared to deter further attacks in the region.
