Joe Biden, who took the oath of office on January 20, took the first military action. In the early hours of Friday, the US Air Force carried out attacks in Syria. The bombing was carried out in two Syrian bases or bases occupied by Iran-backed militant groups and from where rockets were fired at US airbases in Iraq twice in two weeks. However, it is not yet clear how much damage was done to the terrorist groups in American Airstrike.
Many terrorists were killed
In an interview with CNN after the Airstrike, an American officer said – many terrorists have been killed in the attack. They have suffered a lot. Their bases have been destroyed. No more information can be given at this time. We want to make it clear that America will not be able to tolerate any kind of terrorist acts. Our Defense Minister General Lloyd Austin has already made it clear that no plot to harm American interests will be allowed to succeed.
This attack is a message to the world
Biden is being called a softer president than Trump. He has shown a tough attitude towards Iran after taking office. The militant groups of Iran carried out attacks near the US airbase in Idlib twice during the two weeks. One person was killed. The CNN report states that the US attack is clearly a message to those countries of the world that terrorist acts of any kind will not be tolerated. Pentagon spokesman Mike Kirby said the attacks were carried out on presidential orders.
Tension will increase with Iran
Iran’s terrorist groups have several bases in Syria. They are used by the Syrian government and military. It is from here that American troops present in Iraq are also targeted. Although the government of Iran has always spoken of not having its hand in such attacks, the US government claims that it is impossible to execute them without the help of Iran. There is already tension between the US and Iran. Iran is increasing its nuclear weapons program at a fast pace. After this attack by the US, it is believed that tension will increase between the two countries and Iran’s misconception will also be cleared that Biden will implement the old agreement.
