A series of drone attacks have targeted American bases in both Syria and Iraq. The ruling classes are saying that no signs point to Iran being responsible, however, this is still a serious advancement of the war, and the United States isn’t likely to let these attacks slide.

Drones and rocket attacks have targeted American bases at least ten times in Iraq and three times in Syria since October 17th, according to Pentagon officials, as reported by RT. Washington has accused Iran-backed militias but admitted there is no evidence to pin blame on Tehran’s rulers for ordering the attacks.

Four additional U.S. personnel were also injured in two separate drone attacks against American forces deployed at Al-Asad base in western Iraq. On a separate occasion at the same base, a U.S. civilian contractor died of a cardiac episode while taking cover from a suspected drone attack that never actually took place.

The White House and the Pentagon have both indicated they believe Iran was the force behind the recent string of attacks on U.S. bases. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Secretary of State Antony Blinken both claimed over the weekend that there was a “likelihood of escalation of violence” by Iranian proxies. Tehran is “actively facilitating” these attacks, National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters on Monday, accusing Iran of also supporting the militant groups Hamas and Hezbollah in their conflict with Israel.
