IP - There have been at least 130 attacks on US forces in Iraq and Syria by the “Resistance Axis” since the start of the war in Gaza, according to a report by the Lebanon-based TV, Al Mayadeen.

Iran Press/ West Asia: The media network quoted an unnamed US official as saying the number consists of 53 attacks in Iraq and 77 in Syria.

The US has maintained bases and troops in both countries with the pretext of combating ISIS.

The report comes a day after the Islamic Resistance in Iraq took responsibility for a rocket attack on a US base in Syria. The group has also declared to have launched rockets and missiles directly at Israel multiple times, but no damage has been reported.

The group has said the attacks are aimed at combating US “occupation” in Iraq and US-backed Israeli attacks on Gaza.
