The United States and allied forces in Iraq and Syria were the target of more than 150 attacks since mid-October, according to the Pentagon. This is a direct reflection of the war in Gaza between Israel, an ally of Washington, and Hamas, backed by Iran.

Washington carried out retaliatory strikes in both Syria and Iraq, and many of these attacks on US personnel were claimed by the Islamic Resistance in Iraq. (JO)
