THE U.S. MILITARY reportedly bombed 85 sites overnight linked to Iran-backed militias in Iraq and Syria.
34 militants were killed in the strikes carried out in retaliation for the attack on the US base in Jordan that left three American soldiers dead and another 40 injured. The attack reportedly destroyed the headquarters of the People’s Mobilization Committee in Anbar province, a group actively involved in fighting a resurgent Islamic State. (And there are unconfirmed reports that the US is helping ISIS reestablish a presence in Iraq.)
The question now is whether this leads to an escalation in violence in a region already on edge because of the Israel-Hamas war.
