The Syrian military official said the area attacked was a military position along the Tanf highway in the desert. A road between Iraq and Syria would facilitate the flow of assistance from Iran, which is a strong backer of Assad.

Asked if the airstrike increases the U.S. role in the Syrian war, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said America will defend its troops in case of "aggressive" steps against them.
