US strikes Iran-backed groups in Syria twice in 24 hours after attacks


The US says it conducted two rounds of air strikes in eastern Syria in one day against groups affiliated with Iran's Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC).

Early on Wednesday, jets bombed bunkers in Deir al-Zour province in retaliation for attacks on US troops last week.

In the evening, rockets were fired towards two US bases, injuring three service members, the US military said.

Helicopters attacked vehicles used to launch some of the rockets, killing two or three suspected fighters, it added.
