US carries out major bombing in Iraq, Syria

The US air force carried out strikes on 85 sites in the border regions connecting Iraq and Syria early on 3 February.

US Central Command stated its forces struck targets “belonging to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and its allies, in Iraq and Syria” using “long-range bombers launched from the United States.”

The statement added that US forces “used more than 125 precision-guided munitions in the air strikes. The facilities that were struck included command and control operations, intelligence centers, missiles and missiles, drone warehouses, logistical facilities, and the ammunition supply chain.”

The strikes came in response to an attack on Tower 22, a US base on the Jordan-Syria border on 28 January. The attack killed three US soldiers and injured dozens. Kataib Hezbollah, an Iraqi armed group that is part of the Islamic Resistance in Iraq and enjoys support from Iran, claimed responsibility. The Islamic Resistance in Iraq seeks to expel US forces from the country and stop Israel’s genocide in Gaza.

According to sources speaking with Al-Mayadeen, most of the sites targeted by US warplanes Saturday had been completely evacuated before the attacks were launched.

The assault targeted sites near the cities of Deir Ezzor, Al-Mayadeen, and Al-Bukamal and nearby towns in eastern Syria on the Euphrates River.

Russia Calls Urgent UN Security Council Meeting To Condemn ‘Illegal’ US Strikes

Russia has condemned the Friday night large-scale US strikes on Syria and Iraq, saying it was an illegal ‘aggression’ and that an urgent United Nations Security Council meeting must be convened to address it.

Russian foreign ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said Saturday of the American operation which killed some 40 people, including civilians, that it “once again demonstrated to the world the aggressive nature of US policy in the Middle East and Washington’s complete disregard for international law.”

According to TASS, “A UN Security Council meeting in connection with the US strikes is scheduled for February 5”; however, the UN has yet to confirm or publish details of the upcoming emergency session.

Additionally Moscow’s ambassador to the UN, Dmitry Polyansky, said: “We just demanded an urgent sitting of the UN Security Council over the threat to peace and safety created by US strikes on Syria and Iraq.”

The Pentagon said it struck over 85 targets in Iraq and Syria, and there are likely more bombing waves to come in the next days.

In fresh Saturday remarks, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said “This is the start of our response.” Some unnamed US officials have even said the operation could continue for days or even weeks, in response to the Sunday drone attack on the Jordanian border base which killed three Americans.

While Russia has over several years repeatedly condemned US operations over Syria, and especially the troop occupation in the northeast, it has never responded with an anti-air intercept, or at least this has never been publicly disclosed.

But this remains a possibility so long as major US aerial operations continue. Russian jets and convoy patrols are present especially in Syria’s northwest, but have also been known to stretch near Deir Ezzor, the other side of which the Pentagon has a presence.

Moscow says that the US is there illegally, while Russian military intervention was invited in by the Assad government, to stave off externally-sponsored jihadist and terror attacks on the Syrian population.

  1. The Us and their jew masters are the reason why the world is what it is today.

    Without the USA, the world would be peaceful, no plandemics, no economic crises, no wars, no Israel, no genocides.

    The US has lost all its wars since 1945 (a war won by Russia by the way) and it’s going to lose the coming ones.

    But the goal of their pimps is not to win wars but to create chaos and destroy what is left of the wrold economy while depopulating to try to force on us their shitsick ‘one world’ dictatorship (like the EU but in worse).

    Unfortunately, the parasites who have infested the USA and other western countries for too long will kill their hosts, if the hosts don’t wake-up and violently eradicate them.
