A “precision airstrike” by US F-15 fighter jets prompted a tit-for-tat response on Friday by Iran-backed militants, who fired 10 missiles that narrowly missed a US base in northeastern Syria – but hit a civilian houseAccording to US Central Command, two women and two children were injured.
The president sent a letter to the House and Senate late Saturday defending the attacks, saying he was providing information to keep Congress “fully informed.”
“Precise attacks were carried out by IRGC-linked groups on facilities used for command and control, ammunition storage and other purposes,” Biden’s letter said. “They were organized in such a way as to establish resistance, limit the risk of escalation, and avoid civilian casualties.”
The two-day exchange was one of the deadliest exchanges between US and Iran-coalition forces in years. Iranian proxy has done at least 78 drone or rocket attacks against US troops in the Middle East since early 2021, when President Joe Biden took office.
“The United States does not — does not, I emphasize — seek conflict with Iran,” Biden said during a press conference in Ottawa on Friday during a state visit to Canada. “But be prepared to use force to protect our people.”
But Republicans criticized Biden’s response to the Iran-backed aggression as weak.
Iowa Sen. Johnny Ernst argued in a tweet, “The Biden administration’s continued doctrine of appeasement has cost American lives and emboldened our adversaries.”
