Imminent Threat in Iraq? CENTCOM Says Coalition Forces Are on 'High Level of Alert' - Tyler O'Neil, PJ Media
On Tuesday afternoon, the deputy commander of the U.S.-led coalition of forces in Iraq and Syria — Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) — insisted that the forces had seen "no increased threat from Iranian-backed forces." U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) disputed the statement, saying forces are on a "high level of alert."

British Maj. Gen. Chris Ghika denied an increased threat in comments reported by Politico. Ghika insisted that his position did not contradict messaging from the White House and the Pentagon. Last week, the Pentagon claimed it had intelligence of impending Iranian-sponsored action against U.S. forces and interests, including in Iraq.

The coalition has observed "no change in their posture since the recent exchange between the United States and Iran and we hope and expect that will continue," Ghika told reporters. He was referring to Shiite militias in Iraq receiving support from Iran. "We don't see an increased threat from them at this stage."

Ghika insisted that his statements do not contradict those coming from the White House and CENTCOM. "We're on exactly the same page," he said. "I don't think we're out of step with the White House at all."
