S. approves strategy to launch attacks on Iranian sites in Iraq and Syria.

U.S. officials have confirmed that plans have been approved for a series of strikes against targets in Iraq and Syria in response to recent attacks on American forces in the region. The strikes will include targeting Iranian personnel and facilities, and will be carried out over a number of days.

Speaking at the Pentagon, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin emphasized that the U.S. will not tolerate attacks on American troops. He also acknowledged the dangerous situation in the Middle East, with ongoing conflicts in Gaza and Yemen.

The timing of the strikes will depend on weather conditions, as the U.S. wants to ensure visibility of selected targets to avoid civilian casualties. There have been no new attacks on U.S. troops since the Iran-backed militia Kataib Hezbollah announced a suspension of military operations against American forces.

In response to the group’s statement, Austin stated that the U.S. will continue to monitor their actions, not just their words. Iran has consistently denied responsibility for the attacks and warned that any strike on their territory or personnel would only escalate tensions in the region.

The U.S. is determined to hold those responsible for the attacks accountable, and will take all necessary actions to defend American interests and people. The situation in the Middle East remains volatile, and the U.S. is working to avoid further conflict while also responding to threats against its forces.
