In response to drone attacks against US personnel and facilities in Iraq, airstrikes approved by US President Joe Biden were conducted against Iran-backed militia in Iraq and Syria, on Sunday. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based group that closely monitors the Syrian conflict, reported that at least five Iraqi militiamen were killed in the airstrikes. “The United States took necessary, appropriate and deliberate action designed to limit the risk of escalation; but also to send a clear and unambiguous deterrent message,” the Pentagon press secretary, John Kirby said. This was the second time when Biden administration took military action in the region.
