On today’s Watchman Newscast, host Erick Stakelbeck breaks down the U.S. airstrike against Iran-backed militias in Syria on February 25th.
The strike occurred along the Iraq/Syria border and targeted Iraq-based terror militias, including Kataib Hezbollah. At least 17 of these fighters were reportedly killed, including one Kataib Hezbollah member.
The airstrike came in response to a series of rocket barrages against U.S. personnel in Iraq over the past two weeks. But will it be enough to deter the Iranian regime and its proxies from further terror attacks–and does it change Biden’s desire to re-enter the disastrous Iran nuclear deal?
