It has been reported that US fighter jets had on Thursday night, October 26, struck two of the Iran-backed militia bases in Syria as a revenge for a spate of drone and missile attacks on American troops.

The Pentagon disclosed that it has retaliated amid fears that the Israel-Hamas conflict could spiral into an all-out war which may go across the Middle East.

According to a statement issued by the senior US military officials, it was revealed that the “precision” air strikes were carried out close to Boukamal in the eastern Syria by two F-16 fighter jets.

The jets reportedly struck weapons and ammunition depots that were connected to the Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Crops and have been recently used to strike US bases.

It was further disclosed that the strikes were intended to show Iran-backed militant groups the US would retaliate swiftly and as strongly as possible to deter future aggression.

On Thursday, a US bases at Kharab al-Jir in Syria was attacked for the second time in two days, while a base in western Iraq was also hit.

Since October 17, there have been at least 19 assaults on US bases and personnel in Iraq and Syria using drones and missiles, according to the Pentagon.

The Pentagon says 24 US soldiers have been injured and one personnel killed.

Tensions in the Middle East have soared since Israel declared war on Hamas after the terrorists unleashed hell on southern Israel during their bloody October 7 attacks that left some 1,400 Israelis dead.
