Iranian-backed militias in Syria responsible for drone attack on coalition base.
U.S. Central Command authorized precision strikes against IRGC-affiliated groups in eastern Syria.
Strikes conducted in response to recent attacks against coalition forces in Syria.
F-15E fighters launched attack at approximately 2:40 a.m. local time.
Initial indications show facilities were destroyed, and no casualties were reported.
Iranian-backed groups launched 10 rockets targeting coalition forces, resulting in no injuries or damage.
Current assessment shows the rocket attacks were conducted by IRGC-affiliated groups in retaliation for the airstrikes.
Iran is a source of instability in the region, supplying drones to Russia to attack innocents in Ukraine.
U.S. and coalition allies focused on ensuring stability and security in the region.
Appropriate and proportional response will continue if U.S. personnel are threatened.
