China News Service, February 26, reported that on the 25th local time, under the order of U.S. President Biden, the U.S. military launched air strikes on multiple facilities of Iran-backed militias in Syria.
According to the latest news from Agence France-Presse, the air strikes have killed 17 militants supporting Iran.
Agence France-Presse quoted the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights as saying that "the US airstrike in Syria has caused the death of 17 armed personnel supporting Iran."
The US Department of Defense said on the 25th that the airstrike was a response to the recent attacks on US and multinational forces in Iraq.
On February 15th, Erbil, the capital of the Kurdish Autonomous Region of Iraq, was hit by several rockets.
The US military-led anti-extremist organization "Islamic State" was hit near the location of the League of Nations. An employee of the League of Nations contractor was killed and many others were injured.
The Shia militia armed "Blood Guardian Brigade" announced that it had committed the attack.
This week, Iran stated that it has no contact with the organization.
According to US media analysis, Washington and Tehran are preparing to negotiate on the Iranian nuclear agreement when the United States launched this air strike in Syria.
The US move may further complicate the already fragile negotiation process.
