A major confrontation between Iran and the U.S. seems to have stalled for now, but not without lack of smaller instances. Rocket strikes against a U.S. military base in Iraq where 11 soldiers were injured is one of these cases. More of these engagements should be expected, as Iran uses privately funded organizations to carry out attacks, rather than a full-scale invasion. These militants play the long game, whereas the U.S. would rather jump from problem to problem, causing the loss of focus. Another concern is that the killing of Qassem Soleimani crossed a line that would lead Iran to believe they have free range to target civilians and innocents rather than military structures.
