US accuses Iran-backed Militias
According to the Pentagon, the US is preparing large-scale action against militias that have attacked American targets. For days, the Biden administration has been hinting at retaliatory strikes for a drone attack on a remote US military base in northeastern Jordan known as Tower 22. Three American soldiers were killed and more than 40 others injured in the incident on Sunday. Pro-Iranian militias in Iraq have claimed responsibility for the attack.
US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said it was time to take further action against the Iranian-backed militias that have attacked US forces on land and sea.
