EXCLUSIVE: Sen. Daines bill demands Houthi terrorist designation after Biden admin reversal

Senior Pentagon officials last week discussed an expected “significant escalation” of attacks against U.S. troops in the Middle East as tensions flare in the wake of the Hamas terrorist attack on Israel. The U.S. said that preliminary intelligence did not indicate any Iranian involvement in the planning or execution of the Hamas attack on Oct. 7 but that subsequent attacks from various Islamic extremist groups, which have injured dozens of American service members, have “Iranian fingerprints all over them.”

“I think it’s fair to say when you see this uptick in activity in attacks by many of these groups, there’s Iranian fingerprints all over it,” a defense official said during a background briefing with reporters.
