Several people have been killed in a US airstrike on pro-Iranian militant targets in Syria near the Iraq border. As “Armenpress” reports, the Washington Post reported.

According to the source, there are bases to believe that the strike killed a small number of people.

Earlier, the Pentagon said the airstrike had destroyed a number of Shia-backed infrastructure facilities backed by Iran. According to the Pentagon, this step was a response to the recent attack on US and coalition forces in Iraq. US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said that the US military has relied on intelligence of Iraq and is confident in the accuracy of the strike.
