Air strikes have been carried out by the US against two weapons and ammo amenities utilized by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and associated factions.

Lloyd Austin, the US Secretary of Defense, stated on Thursday that the strikes were in light of recent assaults on US military bases in Iraq and Syria by Iranian-supported state army groups that started on October 17.

Austin further described the air bombardments, as ordered by US President Joe Biden, as solely geared towards ”self-defense” and insisted that they were “distinct” and ”separate” from the present wars between Hamas and Israel.

The strikes were done via a couple of F-16 air fighters of the US air force. This occurred on Thursday close to Abu Kamal, a town in far eastern Syria on the boundary with Iraq.

It isn’t yet known whether there were any fatalities from the hits.

Iran didn’t promptly remark on the air assaults.

However, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, the Foreign Minister of Iran, didn’t endeavor to water down the strained relationships Thursday at a crisis meeting of the UN General Assembly, expressing that on the chance that the conflict in Gaza doesn’t end, the US won’t be saved from ”fire”.

Previously this week, the Iranian minister commented that Iran had gotten two messages from the US, but he wouldn’t reveal how or when the messages were conveyed. The main message said the US was not intrigued by a further development of the contention, he said, while the second encouraged Iran and its accomplices to have self-constraint.

US and allied troops have received not less than a dozen attacks in Iraq and four attacks in Syria since the Israel-Hamas tensions started.

A sum of 21 US military staff have experienced minor wounds, as per the Pentagon.
