BREAKING: US releases aerial footage of F-15 Strike Eagles eliminating Iranian-backed terrorists last night near the Syria-Iraq border in retaliation for a rocket attack in which an American contractor was killed.
US forces bombed headquarters of the Iranian proxy Kataib Hezbollah terror group in the town of al-Qaim, near al-Bukamal in the Syria-Iraq border, in response to the killing of a US civilian contractor in a rocket attack on an Iraqi military base hosting US forces.
At 25 Muslim terrorists were eliminated and 51 others wounded in the strikes.
US officials said that airstrikes in Iraq and Syria against an Iran-backed terror group were successful and warned that “additional actions” may still be taken in the region to defend US interests.
“We will not stand for the Islamic Republic of Iran to take actions that put American men and women in jeopardy,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters.
Iran condemned on Monday what they called “terrorist” US attacks on the Iranian-backed Kataib Hezbollah terror group.
Kataib Hezbollah terror group said that their terrorists are in a state of “mobilization”, “the battle with America is open to all possibilities, no option but confrontation,” they said.
