"You can't act with impunity. Be careful," Biden told reporters while traveling in the southern state of Texas.

His comments came a day after the U.S. military conducted airstrikes against facilities used by Iranian-backed militant groups in eastern Syria.

The Pentagon said the airstrikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against American and coalition personnel in Iraq.
