Pentagon confirms US airstrike on target in Syria




The Pentagon has confirmed the infliction of a US airstrike on a facility in Syria, which may belong to the Iranian armed forces. This was reported on the website of the country's Ministry of Defense.





In addition, the department confirms that the aim of the strike was in response to a series of recent attacks on American targets in Iraq. The Defense Ministry noted that the actions of the American side were aimed at de-escalating the situation in eastern Syria and Iraq.

According to the statement, the Pentagon considers such a response “proportional”, and also adds that diplomatic measures were applied in parallel.

It also clarifies that as a result of the airstrike, several border buildings, which were used by pro-Iranian groups, were destroyed.

Earlier, Reuters said that the United States launched an airstrike on targets of the Iranian Armed Forces in Syria.
