Attacks on US forces in Iraq and Syria by pro-Iranian groups using drones represents an emerging threat in the region. The US acknowledged the attacks in a recent report on the US role in Iraq and Syria, the quarterly Lead Inspector General report to the US Congress on Operation Inherent Resolve. The report covers the October-December 2021 period. These reports usually are released a month or two after they have been provided to US authorities and Congress. The report combines information from the Pentagon, the US State Department, Central Command and other sources.

These reports are important because they provide evidence of the rising Iranian threat in Iraq and Syria against US forces. Over the last several years, Iran and proxy militias it works with have been threatening the US. This began to increase rapidly in May 2019 and resulted in numerous rocket attacks on US forces. Within a year several US personnel and contractors were killed. The US responded with airstrikes.
