The Pentagon says American forces have launched fresh strikes on Iran-linked sites in eastern Syria following repeated attacks on US troops in Syria and Iraq.

A statement attributed to US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin says the strikes targeted a training facility and a safe house that were “used by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Iran-affiliated groups.”

“The President has no higher priority than the safety of US personnel, and he directed today’s action to make clear that the United States will defend itself, its personnel, and its interests,” Austin says.
