US says Iran ‘actively facilitating’ attacks on bases in Middle East


The United States has accused Iran of “actively facilitating” rocket and drone attacks by Iranian-backed proxy groups on its forces in Iraq and Syria.

John Kirby, the White House national security spokesperson, said on Monday the US would not allow threats to interests “go unchallenged” after an uptick in such attacks over the last week as tensions rise across the region amid the Israel-Hamas war.
