The White House called the reason for the airstrike in Syria




In order to de-escalate the conflict in both Syria and Iraq, Biden is ready to take similar measures, Jen Psaki said.





The US airstrike on targets in Syria belonging to a militant group backed by Iran was aimed at de-escalating tensions in the region. This was announced on Friday, February 26, by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

According to her, the US Department of Defense informed Congress about the upcoming airstrike on Thursday evening. On the second day held a briefing for members of Congress, carried out by employees of the U.S. administration.

“The strikes were necessary to eliminate the threat and were proportionate to previous attacks. “The targets were chosen in such a way as to prevent the risk of further attacks in the coming weeks,” the spokeswoman said.

Psaki also stressed that in order to de-escalate the conflict in both Syria and Iraq, the head of state, Joe Biden, intends to take similar measures.

“The president sends an unequivocal message that he is going to act to protect Americans, and when threats arise, he has the right to take action at the time and in the manner that he chooses,” she said.

Recall that last night the United States carried out an airstrike on pro-Iranian militants in Syria, as a result of which 17 of them were killed.
