“Eastern Syria: Collision Between American Forces and Iranian Militias”

14 militants linked to the Guard and an American contractor were killed… and Washington confirms that it will protect its forces

Eastern Syria, Thursday-Friday night, turned into a confrontation arena between US forces and militias linked to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, following a drone attack on a military base that killed a “contractor” with the US army. The United States responded to the attack with heavy bombardment of weapons storage centers and facilities, killing at least 14 pro-Iranian militants.

The White House was quick to stress that the United States did not seek conflict with Iran, but at the same time warned that Tehran should not be involved in supporting attacks on American facilities, according to John Kirby, a spokesman for the National Security Council. “We will work to protect our people and facilities to the best of our ability,” Kirby told CNN. It is a dangerous environment.”

US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said that the US strikes came “in response to today’s attack (Thursday-Friday night) and a series of recent attacks against the coalition forces in Syria by groups affiliated with the Revolutionary Guards.” He added, “As President (Joe) Biden has made clear: We will take every action necessary to defend our people and we will always respond at a time and place of our choosing.”

The Pentagon stated that an Iranian-made drone attack killed an American contractor, wounded another contractor and five American soldiers at a base near Hasakah in northeastern Syria. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed that the US strikes killed 14 militants allied with Iran.
