US launches airstrikes in Iraq and Syria in retaliation for Jordan drone attack

The United States on Friday launched an air assault on dozens of sites in Iraq and Syria used by Iranian-backed militias and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. This marks the first step in retaliation for the drone strike that killed three US troops in Jordan last weekend. The US military has targeted over 85 sites in seven locations in both countries, and the Pentagon has pledged to continue the assault.
