Russian military journalist Boris Rozhin outlines the attacks on US forces in Syria.

[ColonelCassad] A large-scale approach can be noted - the attacks took place throughout the region and affected both the American bases in Syria and Iraq, and the American embassy in Baghdad, as well as American logistics convoys.

Iranian proxies make it clear to the United States quite straightforwardly that strikes in Iraq and Syria will have a price and that American facilities in the region have been transferred to the status of a legitimate military target, the strikes against which have entered the regime of routinization.

The United States is still pondering - either to strike again and wait for responses, or to pretend that the episode is played out and since there are no direct losses in people, then nothing significant happens while negotiations on a nuclear deal are underway.
That’s because President Joe Biden is at best a venal fool.
The pro-Iranian Shiite group Asahb al-Kahf claimed responsibility for a series of attacks on American convoys with roadside bombs yesterday, boasting an increase in the number of these attacks and threatening to continue attacks until American invaders are removed from Iraq, as required by current Iraqi law.

Earlier it was noted that the attacks are carried out by groups created in 2020-2021, so as not to expose the most valuable groups like Kataib Hezbollah, Harakat al-Nudjba and Asaib Ahl al-Haq, which continue the legal activity, while combat groups are withdrawn into a separate state of new groups and are waging a semi-guerrilla war against the United States.

At the same time, when the United States tries to use the PTT apparatus and other security structures of Iraq, including arresting members of Shiite groups for shelling the US Embassy and the Green Zone in Baghdad, legal groups provide forceful pressure on the government and threaten with mass protests or even forceful actions. are forcing the government to make concessions and release the detainees.

Adds TASS:
Militant attacks on the facilities of the US-led coalition in eastern Syria are becoming more and more frequent, Vadim Kulit, deputy chief of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Parties in Syria, said on Monday.

"The coalition’s facilities on the eastern bank of the Euphrates came under shelling four times last week alone," he said, adding that increased activities of radical groups is observed on Syria’s territories controlled by the US-led coalition

"On July 11, militant shelled coalition facilities near oil and gas fields in Conoco and Al-Omar with the use of improvised multiple missile launcher systems," he said.

The US Department of Defense said on Saturday that the US military had come under fire in eastern Syria. According to a Pentagon spokesman, "there was an indirect fire attack in Conoco." It was reported on Wednesday that the Ain al-Asad air base in western Iraq, which is used by the US-led anti-terrorist coalition, had come under missile fire. Apart from that, Erbil’s international airport in Iraqi Kurdistan was attacked by a drone bomb on Tuesday.
