U.S. Troops in Middle East Face 74th Attack Since October

The Pentagon has confirmed the 74th attack on U.S. troops in the Middle East since October 17, 2023. This recent spike in military confrontations underscores the ongoing tensions in the region.

Recent Attack in Syria

The latest attack targeted U.S. forces stationed in Syria. Pentagon spokesperson Sabrina Singh reported no injuries or damage to infrastructure from this incident.

Singh’s announcement during a Department of Defense briefing highlighted that these attacks have been recurrent since mid-October​​​​.

Background of the Attacks

The series of attacks, primarily occurring in Iraq and Syria, are believed to be orchestrated by Iraqi militia groups.

These assaults are reportedly in response to the U.S.’s support for Israel following its retaliation against the Palestinian militant group Hamas earlier in October​​.

Defensive Actions by U.S. Navy

In a related defensive measure, the U.S. Navy Destroyer USS Carney recently shot down an Iranian-made Houthi drone launched from Yemen.

This incident did not result in any injuries or damage to the vessel, but it reflects the heightened military vigilance in the region​​.
