The past few days have witnessed an increase in attacks against American military bases in the Middle East, especially in Syria and Iraq, which were met with a US response by bombing sites belonging to Iranian factions.
Under the name “Islamic Resistance in Iraq,” these factions constantly announce their strikes, which are mostly carried out with one-directional marches and missiles, as the Pentagon announced earlier.
Last Monday, the Pentagon announced the bombing of Iranian Revolutionary Guard sites in eastern Syria, in response to the continuing attacks on its bases in the region.
Reuters quoted a US official on Wednesday as saying that the US bombing against armed factions linked to Iran in al bukamal, eastern Syria, resulted in the deaths of up to seven people.
The US official said that people were killed during one of the raids on a training facility near the city of al Bukamal in Deir al Zour countryside.
He added, “The second strike, which the Pentagon says was carried out on a safe house near the Syrian city of al Mayadeen, may have led to the death of another person”.
It worth mentioning that, the New York Times reported last Monday that Biden had rejected the more aggressive bombing options proposed by the Pentagon in recent weeks for fear of provoking a broader conflict with Iran.
The New York Times added that Biden faced great criticism from Republicans in the US Congress, who considered that the White House’s limited response only led to more frequent and more dangerous attacks against US forces in the region.
