Islamic Resistance in Iraq Renews Attacks Against American Forces


The Islamic Resistance in Iraq, an umbrella organization of Iran-backed Shia militias, has claimed responsibility for an attack against American forces at the Erbil Airport with a drone, stating that it was “in response to the crimes committed by the enemy against our people in Gaza.”

This marks the first strike since November 23, which coincides with the duration of the ceasefire in Gaza between Hamas and Israel. Since October 17, the Islamic Resistance in Iraq has claimed at least 75 strikes against American forces in Iraq and Syria, which has resulted in dozens of injuries.

The United States has responded to the attacks by carrying out retaliatory strikes on three separate occasions, the latest of which being on November 20 when a USAF AC-130J Ghostrider gunship “engaged individuals responsible for launching a missile attack on U.S. and Coalition personnel at Al Assad Airbase” near Abu Ghairb, resulting in “several enemy casualties,” according to CENTCOM.
