U.S. Launches Strikes in Iraq & Syria, Nearly 40 Reported Killed



Feb 3, 2023

Reuters reporting – The United States launched airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, targeting more than 85 locations associated with Iran’s Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) and militias supported by Iran.

These strikes were in retaliation for a deadly attack on U.S. troops by Iran-backed militants. Nearly 40 people were reportedly killed in the airstrikes. The U.S. used long-range B-1 bombers flown from the United States for these attacks. These strikes marked the first response to the recent attack by Iran-backed militants in Jordan, and more U.S. military operations in the region are expected.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry criticized the U.S. actions, and Iraq summoned the U.S. charge d’affaires in Baghdad to protest. In Syria, the strikes killed 23 people guarding the targeted locations. Despite these actions, the U.S. does not seek war with Iran and believes Tehran also does not want war. The situation has escalated as conflicts in the region, including the Israel-Hamas conflict, continue.
