The advisor to Iran’s nuclear-negotiating team in Vienna Mohammad Marandi, who is also the son of the supreme leader’s personal physician, gloats after tonight’s attack on Erbil near the unoccupied new U.S. consulate that “this is just the beginning.”

The senior U.S. commander for the Middle East has repeatedly issued warnings about the increasing threats of attacks from the Iranian regime and Iranian-back militias targeting American troops and allies in Iraq and Syria.

In an interview with The Associated Press in December, Marine Gen. Frank McKenzie of CENTCOM said that while U.S. forces in Iraq have shifted to a non-combat role, the Iranian regime and its proxies continue to pursue their objective of forcing all American troops to leave the country. As a result, he said, that may trigger more attacks.

More recently, Iranian regime proxies are believed responsible for an assassination attempt late last year targeting Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi.

Officials have also said they believe the Iranian regime was behind the October drone attack targeting the Al-Tanf military outpost in southern Syria where U.S. troops are based. No U.S. personnel were killed or injured in the attack
