Since Israel went to war with Hamas, America has become increasingly involved. President Biden moved a number of U.S. warships into the region.
Biden’s actions appear to be provoking a response from Iran-backed terror groups. They have already attacked U.S. bases and ships dozens of times over the last month.
But it appears the conflict is only growing. Iranian proxies are becoming more aggressive in targeting American forces. And now, it’s not only military targets they are attacking.
From The Post Millennial:
Pentagon officials have confirmed that an American warship and multiple commercial vessels were attacked in the Red Sea on Sunday, with Houthi rebels in Yemen taking credit for the attacks…
According to NPR, the USS Carney is an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, and the attack could be a potential escalation of maritime attacks in connection to the war between Israel and Hamas.
The Pentagon revealed that the USS Carney and commercial vessels were attacked by missiles and drones over the weekend. Houthi rebels, a terror group in Yemen backed by Iran, took credit for the attack.
This comes as Iranian-supported groups ratchet up their attacks beyond the war in Gaza. U.S. bases have been hit, leading to injuries among American servicemembers. U.S. forces have retaliated several times, stoking fears of a large conflict erupting in the region.
Recently, a group of terrorists captured a ship believed to be owned by an Israeli businessman. Now, missiles are being fired at commercial vessels in the Red Sea. It appears that Hamas allies are eager to expand this conflict to include any targets they deem worth hitting.
How far will this go? And should Biden be stirring up more hostility, while Israel fights to defeat Hamas?
Experts have already feared that figures could be entering the U.S. through the Southern border. Biden’s heavily criticized lax stance on the border might be inviting members of these groups to infiltrate the country.
Iranian-backed terror groups have promised to continue attacks until Israel ends its campaign against Hamas. And since there seems to be no end to that conflict in sight, American targets might see more attacks.
- Iranian-backed rebels are now attacking commercial vessels in the Red Sea.
- Terror groups have been firing missiles at U.S. forces for weeks.
- Biden has been criticized over his response to the Israel war, stoking fears of a large conflict.
