The US Department of Defense (DoD) has released two videos of airstrikes carried out by US forces against Iranian proxy fighters in Syria over the weekend.
On Sunday, a senior US defense official said at least six Iranian proxy fighters were killed in US strikes on Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) posts in the Middle East.
IRGC stations are located in the Syrian cities of Abu Kamal and Maydin.
