Since the United States struck Iran-linked targets in Syria and Iraq on February 2, Iran’s proxy militias in those countries have only launched three attacks against U.S. personnel, with the latest on February 4. This marks the lowest amount of Iran-backed attacks on U.S. personnel in Iraq and Syria since Tehran’s proxies began their escalation on October 17, 2023. The Iran- backed Houthis in Yemen, however, continued to carry out maritime attacks and disrupt international trade, conducting 33 such attacks in February. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported that Iran had slightly decreased its stockpile of 60 percent enriched uranium, while its total stockpile of uranium enriched to any level had grown by roughly 23 percent since its last report in November. Iran-backed hackers hijacked TV news programming in the U.K., Canada, and the U.A.E. to broadcast an artificial intelligence (AI)-generated false news report on Gaza intended to incite viewers against Israel.
