The Pentagon confirmed the infliction of an airstrike on the territory of Syria and named the targets

32

The information that the US Air Force attacked the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic was confirmed. A spokesman for the US Department of Defense told reporters that the targets for this kind of airstrike were not at all internationally recognized terrorist groups, but the units and infrastructure of the Iranian armed forces and the troops they support.


The Pentagon said in a statement that aviation the strikes were primarily targeted at infrastructure belonging to Iranian troops in Syria.

Pentagon:

This was in response to a missile attack on a Western coalition base in northern Iraq. Before that, we had extensive consultations with our coalition partners. President Biden will do everything to protect Americans anywhere in the world.

Recall that some time ago, a blow was struck at the US base in the city of Erbil, the administrative center of Iraqi Kurdistan. The United States then stated that they would not leave this unanswered, at the same time accusing Iran of the attack.

As a result of the US Air Force airstrike on Syrian territory, several infrastructure facilities that were linked to Iranian troops were destroyed or seriously damaged.

Meanwhile, in Syria itself, the reason for striking the targets of the "Iranian troops and pro-Iranian forces" is not at all events in Iraqi Erbil. According to some reports, the Americans struck after several Shiite militias advanced in the direction of the oil fields, which are now controlled by the military personnel of the United States of America.

      Yes, the question here is not Iran. These striped "doves of peace" show us their readiness for war with us anywhere in the world.
      And the whole bright and democratic world is silent about the fact that the United States used force against a sovereign country. Unreasonably, demonstratively and so far with impunity. It is felt that with this American administration even more inadequate characters came to power in the United States than in the previous composition. They can't wait to scroll the hands of the doomsday clock.

        In terms of effectiveness, this blow will be weaker than some of the Israeli ones, so they show their readiness to Iran and, most likely, for their actions in Iraq. If they wanted to show us something, they would hit the CAA.

          1. Why did you decide that the strike was really on the Iranian units? From stakeholder statements? Even if the blow was struck only on the pages of news feeds, this is not its meaning.
          2. Yes, it is not the force of the blow that is important, but the fact itself - "Look, we are returning to Syria." It shows that the United States is again ready to actively use the role of the world gendarme, that it will actively oppose countries that are thinking that, besides the United States, someone can help and protect

            And before Biden they were not in Syria? There were, moreover, the oil fields were seized under Trump, and he also boasted of this, as well as the fact that "many Russians died in the attack on the Konoko oil fields."

            Whoever and whatever was the target for the strikes, the strikes were delivered on the territory of Syria. And this is already an act of unprovoked aggression.

                The Shiite troops of Iran could well have made a sortie from the territory of Syria, where the borders are conditional. All parties to the conflict have been using proxies for a long time, and if everyone struck directly at the proxy owners, then we would have a world war.

                And Iran has been sitting tightly in Syria for a long time, no need here)

            They are afraid of hitting Iran directly, so they strike at Iran's interests in third countries: Syria, Yemen ...

        that the US used force against a sovereign country
        is this a very false and bold statement !? And so, in objective reality:
        on infrastructure owned by Iranian troops in Syria.

        Perhaps the question here is not in the Russian Federation. Why is the United States so clinging to Syrian oil? In the last century, on the dollar + Saudi oil bond, both of these countries warmed up quite well. Obviously, there is no longer the former "friendship" between them. Europe is also slowly starting to pull the blanket over itself. The "hegemon" is blown away, however!

    Interestingly, the Yankees give their "heroes-flyers" orders for bombing civilians, or a solid monetary bonus? Animals that consider themselves to be an "exclusive nation", a planetary infection, in human form, is what the de facto Yankees really are.

      Now, if the Iranian military did come under attack, the "unknown forces" would certainly be noted, because the Iraqi people's militia numbers about 120 thousand bayonets, and they are protected by the IRGC. Given that mattresses in Syria are supplied through Iraqi territory, American supply convoys and convoys of stolen oil will probably fall under the distribution.

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the United States warned the Russian military about the impending strikes on Syria in 4-5 minutes.

    "Our military was warned 4 or 5 minutes in advance. Of course, even if we talk about deconflicting, as is customary in relations between Russian and American servicemen, it gives nothing. This kind of notification when a strike is already being delivered."
    , - quotes the speech of Lavrov "Interfax".

    But Israel notifies the Russian side at least 45 minutes in advance.
    By agreement between the Russian Federation and Israel, the signal "DRP" is transmitted to Syria via a special channel (let's guys hide).
    It is duplicated to a number of mobile numbers via the WhatsApp messenger to relevant persons in the armed forces involved in the conduct of hostilities in Syria.
