Biden Orders Retaliatory Strikes Against Iranian-Backed Militia Groups Following Drone Attack on U.S. Military Base in Iraq

On December 25th, the United States accused Iran of being "deeply involved" in a drone attack on an Iraqi military base that left three U.S. service members wounded. In response, President Joe Biden ordered retaliatory strikes against Iranian-backed militia groups and the U.S. has long accused Iran of supporting militant groups in the Middle East. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said the President was briefed and held a call with his national security team before ordering the strikes.
