Multiple times in the past few days, terrorist proxy groups supported by Iran have opened fire on U.S. forces in the Middle East.
After a US Navy ship, the USS Carney, spotted and destroyed multiple drones and three cruise missiles fired from Yemen by a terrorist group known as the Houthis, who are supported by Iran, on Thursday, the United States Navy launched its strikes. The officials said that there were almost two dozen drones surrounding the guided-missile ship, but they did not say what kind of explosives were employed to bring them down.
Wednesday, a drone attack at Al Asad Air Base in western Iraq left one American contractor with a heart attack as he sprinted for cover. His illness ultimately proved fatal, and he passed away.
Although military officials were still trying to pin down who was behind the drone attacks, Iran had previously carried out similar attacks against American forces. Reuters says that several explosions triggered by rockets and drones occurred within the base on Thursday evening. It was unclear whether the attacks had resulted in any injuries or damage to property at first.
The source claims that last week, terror groups in Iraq backed by Iran threatened the United States with missile and drone attacks if it supported Israel following Hamas militants’ unprecedented attack the previous weekend.
U.S. sources told the Associated Press on Thursday that drones had attacked the al-Tanf stronghold in Syria, where a small contingent of American troops was stationed.
The report states that one drone was shot down, and another caused “limited casualties” by damaging the base.
The fortress “is situated at a strategic crossroads often exploited by Iranian-backed forces to smuggle weaponry to Hezbollah,” the study states. The research provides us with this data.
Hezbollah, an Iranian-backed terrorist group based in Lebanon, has been a source of concern for both Israeli and American authorities, who fear it may be preparing an attack against Israel’s northern border.
