White House says U.S. air strikes in Syria aim to send message

ON BOARD AIR FORCE ONE (Reuters) - U.S. air strikes in Syria are meant to send the message that President Joe Biden will act to protect Americans, a White House spokeswoman said on Friday.

Future U.S. actions in the region will be deliberative and will aim to deescalate tensions in Syria, spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
