US fighter jets launched airstrikes this morning on two locations in eastern Syria linked to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps.

It is a significant moment. These strikes are the first direct US military intervention since Hamas’s October 7 attacks. America is showing it can and will retaliate. Over the past ten days, Iran-backed militias have launched a slew of drone and missile attacks against US bases in Syria and Iraq, injuring 24 US servicemen and killing one civilian contractor.
