    The Pentagon is facing criticism for retracting its use of the term "Iranian-backed militias" in favor of "Shiite-backed militias."
    The American magazine "Newsweek" indicated that this new phrase came from the Pentagon spokesman John Kirby during a press briefing held last Wednesday, to classify the factions that the United States considers responsible for the recent missile attack on the Ain al-Assad base in Iraq, which killed an American civilian contractor. Life as a result of a heart attack.
    In this brief, Kirby said, "It appears to be a missile attack, and we have previously seen missile attacks by Shiite-backed militias ... We have been talking openly and frankly for a long time about the risks arising from these missile attacks carried out by some of the Shiite-backed militias."
    This unusual phrase attracted the attention of journalists during the briefing, and one of them asked the spokesman whether he meant "Iranian-backed militias," but Kirby interrupted him by saying: "I mean the Shiite-backed militias."
    In response to a request for clarifications, Kirby said that he has often used this phrase since assuming his current position, adding: "We know that some Shiite-backed militias have Iranian support."
    And "Newsweek" pointed out that some observers specialized in Iran affairs on "Twitter" suggested that this new phrase represents a change in the policies of President Joe Biden's administration, while some experts criticized this phrase, describing it as "strange" and reflecting an attempt to cover up Iran's alleged role in Attacks on US forces in Iraq.
