Iran ‘can’t act with impunity,’ Biden says after US airstrikes
WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden said Iran cannot act with impunity and warned Iran to “be careful” when asked what message he was sending the country with the U.S. airstrikes in Syria.
“You can’t act with impunity. Be careful,” Biden told reporters while traveling to survey the damage from a severe winter storm in Texas.
The United States carried out airstrikes authorized by Biden against facilities belonging to Iranian-backed militia in eastern Syria on Thursday, in response to rocket attacks against U.S. targets in Iraq.
