Are we the bad guys in the Middle East now? Makes you think….
On Sunday, the Pentagon executed a third series of airstrikes in eastern Syria, targeting what U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin referred to as “precision strikes.” These strikes aimed at an Iran-linked training facility near Albu Kamal and a site near the city of Mayadeen.
Austin emphasized the President’s commitment to the safety of U.S. personnel, stating that the action was directed to make it unequivocal that the United States will defend itself, its personnel, and its interests. This move was framed as a response to a series of attacks on U.S. bases in the region since the initiation of the Gaza war. Continued below the video clip

The statement on Sunday night provided further details, noting that the targeted facilities were utilized by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Iran-affiliated groups, believed to be responsible for the majority of attacks on U.S. installations in Iraq and Syria.
A day prior, U.S. defense officials revealed that U.S. bases had been targeted 48 times since October 17, resulting in 56 American service personnel sustaining minor injuries.

The first significant U.S. airstrikes in eastern Syria occurred on October 27, followed by a second round on November 8. Initially presented as a deterrent against further aggression on U.S. troops, these airstrikes have not succeeded, as missile and drone attacks have persisted.
U.S. officials have heightened their rhetoric against Tehran, asserting that Iran will ultimately be held responsible. However, Iranian officials have denied involvement in the recent attacks.
In response to last week’s strikes, a Pentagon press secretary announced the destruction of an “IRGC-linked weapons storage facility.” This action was taken following rocket and suicide drone attacks on U.S. bases, totaling at least two dozen instances in Iraq and over two dozen instances in Syria.

Deputy press secretary Sabrina Singh declared, “If these attacks continue against our personnel, we won’t hesitate at a time and place of our choosing to respond again.” Defense officials emphasized that the injuries to over 50 U.S. troops were mostly minor, and all have returned to duty.

The U.S. has maintained a presence of 1,000 or more troops and personnel in Syria for years. Initially framed as a “counter ISIS” mission, the U.S. mission has evolved into an oil and gas resource pursuit, with an ultimate focus on regime change in Damascus through sanctions and energy redirection. Concerns are rising that U.S. troops may become entangled in a broader conflict related to Israel’s operations in Gaza and against Hezbollah in southern Lebanon.

- Al Majadin: US bases in Syria are under fire, Americans have been killed. American military bases in eastern and northeastern Syria came under fire. According to Al Majadin TV channel, military personnel were killed. The attack was in response to US strikes on targets in eastern Syria. As reported by the TV channel, 15 missiles were fired at the US military base near the Koniko gas field in Deir ez-Zor province. The target was the military headquarters and weapons depots. Al Majadin says at least 10 helicopters have flown wounded Americans to Iraq, where a military hospital is located. The number of dead has not been specified. Another US base, al-Shadadi in the northeastern Syrian province of Hasakah, was attacked by three drones. The Islamic Resistance of Iraq, which supports Hamas in its war with Israel, claimed responsibility for the attacks. Shortly before the attack, the United States carried out strikes on sites in eastern Syria that the Pentagon said were being used by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and pro-Iranian groups. The targets were a training base near the town of Abu Kamal and a building near the town of Mayadin, from where the militants allegedly operated covertly. The strikes were in response to dozens of attacks on US bases since the start of the war in Israel. The sides also exchanged attacks in late October and on the night of November 9. Clip at Twitter
