Multiple attacks have targeted U.S. forces in Iraq and Syria, with the U.S. Embassy compound in Baghdad sustaining minor damage.

The attacks coincide with a reported plan by Iran to increase assaults on American forces in the region and bolster the Houthi rebels in Yemen.

The goal is to pressure Israel to cease attacks on Hamas in Gaza. (Trending: Top Democrat Loses In Historic Landslide)

A U.S. Embassy representative said, “We reiterate that we reserve the right to self-defense and to protect our personnel anywhere in the world.”

“We think Houthis in Yemen will become more of a threat to Israel in the long term than Hamas or even Hezbollah,” political analyst Nasser Imani.

“Iran considers them a major player and part of the collective strategy of the resistance axis,” he added.

“This is a difficult game to fine-tune for a group like the Houthis who are not just zealots but also have very little to lose,” Ali Vaez, the Iran director of the International Crisis Group stated.

“There are so many points of tensions. The longer the war goes on, the bigger the risk of tensions getting completely out of control.”

The situation has raised concerns surrounding potential escalation and the difficulty of controlling the actions of the Houthis.
