US orders airstrike in Syria against Iran-backed militia, reports say

The United States has carried out an airstrike against an Iran-backed militia in Syria, according to reports.

President Joe Biden ordered his first military action as commander-in-chief on Thursday in an apparent response to rocket attacks against the US in Iraq.

Officials said the strike was against a structure belonging to the militia, according to Reuters.

The strike, ordered by Mr Biden, was designed to damage the group’s ability to carry out further attacks, a defence official also told Politico.

Reuters contributed to this report.
