Iranian-backed groups may have targeted an oil field in Syria and the Al-Asad base in Iraq, according to reports on Monday. Although the first reports were unclear, the overall picture is that Iran could be moving to target US forces in the region. This move could be in response to the seizing of oil by the US off a Greek island several days ago. Iran has already moved to grab two Greek ships in retaliation. The US has condemned Iran, as has France and Greece. Iranian media said that "horrific" explosions were heard at the Asad base in Iraq. The report appears to confirm pro-Iran groups were behind the attack or that Iran wants to highlight their possible involvement.
