The Biden Administration, like its predecessor, punishes those it suspects of attacks in a very similar way.
On June 27th, US F-15E fighter jets struck several Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) positions along the border between Iraq and Syria.
However, the Pentagon spokesman said that the attacks were carried out by a UAV.
PMU sources reported that four PMU members were killed as a result of the strikes.
The victims were members of the PMU 14th Brigade, who were killed as a result of the bombardment by the US forces on points belonging to the Anbar Operations Command.
The Pentagon said that the targeted facilities were used by several Iranian-backed groups, including Kata’ib Hizballah and Kata’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada.
According to reports from pro-Iranian media, a child was killed and three other civilians were wounded in the attack, in addition to the PMU fighters.
On Syria’s side, local media said that the aerial offensive had targeted the town of al-Bukamal in the eastern province of Deir Ezzor, massive explosions were witnessed and heard.
The air strikes came after Iraqi Kurdish officials said on June 26 that four explosive-laden drones hit locations outside the semi-autonomous region’s capital, Erbil.
The US actions were also in response to numerous IEDs blowing up convoys, as well as missile and drone attacks on US positions.
On the same day, the PMU held a military parade near Baghdad attended by senior officials, including Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi.
This show of force was also negatively viewed by the US.
Response to the US strike didn’t come in Iraq, but rather in Syria.
On June 28, heavy rocket fire hit the base near the Omar oil field in Deir Ezzor, where the US Armed Forces are deployed.
Pro-Iranian militants of the Liwa Abu al-Fadhal Al-Abbas group fired at least eight rockets towards the US Armed Forces located at the Omar oil field.
According to the PMU sources, missiles successfully targeted the headquarters of the US-led international coalition.
The attack was confirmed, but no casualties were reported.
In response, the artillery of US Armed Forces struck buildings used by pro-Iranian militants in the city of Mayadin.
In recent weeks, the US has deployed dozens of military vehicles to Syria’s al-Hasakah governorate.
Washington is preparing for a new round of military escalation.
The exchanges of fire will apparently continue.
The recent moves against Iran have clearly demonstrated the “brand-new” strategy of the Biden administration in the region.
It seems to strongly resemble the old one.
