US Retaliate Airstrikes Kill 19 People in Syria; After an Iranian Drone Killed a US Contractor

 American airstrikes killed a total  of 19 people in Syria this week , in retaliation for an Iranian drone attack that killed a U.S. contractor and wounded five American troops, the New American website reports today (Mar29, 2023). 

The Defense Department claims that the targets were affiliated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). A human rights watch organization reports that the Pentagon's air attack in Syria killed three Syrian troops, 11 members of a pro-Syrian regime militia, and five non-Syrian soldiers. 

American F-15s reportedly carried out the "precision airstrikes," which in turn were answered by the Iranians, who fired 10 missiles aimed at a U.S. base in northeast Syria, but missed their intended target and hit a civilian house, injuring two women and two children, according to information issued by U. S. Central Command.
