US carries out airstrikes in Syria after drone attack

United States Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said he authorized "precision airstrikes" in eastern Syria after a drone killed one US contractor and wounded five service members and one other contractor. The Pentagon said the drone was of Iranian origin.

The strikes targeted facilities used by groups affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, the Pentagon said. "These precision strikes are intended to protect and defend US personnel. The United States took proportionate and deliberate action intended to limit the risk of escalation and minimize casualties," it added.
