Baghdad The US Department of Defense (the Pentagon) has ruled out a "military solution" to respond to the attacks on US forces in Iraq.

The Sky News channel quoted the Pentagon as saying, "The biggest challenge for us in the region is Iran and its support for terrorism," adding that "the attacks against the American forces in Iraq are orchestrated by Iran and its backed militias."

It continued, "We are still monitoring Iranian-backed militias in Yemen that are attacking our partners in Saudi Arabia, and these are all Iranian activities that continue to destabilize."

The Pentagon said: "There is no military solution to the threats that we see in Iraq. What we want is to see a stable and sovereign Iraqi government."
