According to a recent Washington Post report, Iran could be planning new attacks against U.S. troops in Syria.
Leaked documents revealed Iran’s alleged plan to arm Syrian militants “in a new phase of deadly attacks” against American troops. But the Middle Eastern country isn’t alone in its mission.
Russia has been known to aid Tehran in driving out the U.S. from the region. But officials are saying that attacks like these are nothing new. Tehran has a “long-running” campaign against U.S. presence in Syria.
Meanwhile, experts are warning against U.S. withdrawal, since the territory is a “key component of the global energy trade.”
