Last week, at least one U.S. military service member in Syria suffered a minor injury and up to three suspected Iran-backed militants were killed, the U.S. military said, in the second consecutive day of violence.
It came a day after President Joe Biden authorized U.S. air strikes in Syria on an ammunition depot and other facilities used by groups affiliated with Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).
The U.S. military said the suspected Iran-backed militants launched two separate attacks starting at approximately 7:20 p.m. local time in Syria (1720 GMT).
