Attacks on U.S. Forces in Mideast Surge Amid Warnings Gaza War Could Spread Like “Wildfire” 

HeadlineNov 10, 2023

The Pentagon says two U.S. fighter planes bombed an ammunition depot used by Iran-backed militia groups in eastern Syria Wednesday. The reported airstrike follows a series of drone and missile attacks on U.S. troops stationed in Iraq and Syria. This week the Pentagon reported 46 injuries to U.S. military personnel over the last month.

On Thursday, Yemen’s Houthi rebels said they had shot down a U.S. drone over the Red Sea and fired a barrage of long-range missiles toward Israel. A Houthi spokesperson said more attacks would follow until Israel halts its aggression against Palestinians. In Paris, the United Nations’ top relief official, Martin Griffiths, warned Thursday that Israel’s assault on Gaza is poised to trigger a much wider war across the Middle East. 

Martin Griffiths: “War, indeed, is a virus that always wants to expand. And the current conflict is a wildfire that could consume the region, that could spread, and that we will think these have been the good days, when we see what may happen tomorrow.”
