Iran-Backed Militias Suspected in Deadly Drone Attack: Biden Weighs Ongoing Response Amid Rising Tensions

The U.S. believes the deadly drone attack was orchestrated by the Islamic Resistance in Iraq, particularly involving the militant group Kataib Hezbollah. President Biden is evaluating response options, emphasizing that it won’t be a one-time action. The ongoing tensions stem from a series of attacks by Iran-aligned militias on U.S. military installations, with this recent strike in Jordan being a focal point.

The National Security Council spokesman dismissed a statement from the Iraqi militia Kataib Hezbollah announcing the suspension of military operations against occupation forces. The U.S. has faced multiple attacks from Iran-aligned militias, with 166 incidents reported since October 18.

The potential for additional American strikes raises concerns about escalating tensions in the region, particularly amid conflicts involving Israel and Iran-backed groups. The situation is complex, with the U.S. Navy responding to attacks in the Red Sea by the Houthi rebels, who claimed responsibility for targeting a U.S. Navy destroyer.
