The United States dropped more than 125 bombs on Iran’s military and its allies in Iraq and Syria on Friday night as it began retaliation for attacks on American troops.
US bombers, some of which had flown across the Atlantic for the mission, hit more than 85 targets in Iraq and Syria, including sites held by the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
It is the first of a series of measures by the US to retaliate against Iranian-backed militias in Iraq and Syria, after more than 160 attacks on American forces in the last three months.
