CENTCOM Commander Kenneth McKenzie indicated that “Bahrain is a very important partner for us in the region… it’s really, in many ways, a center of gravity for our operations in the theater”. He further assessed that “the government of Bahrain is actually well-positioned to operate against the Iranian sponsored and proxy attacks that occasionally occur there. And so I'm very comfortable with where they are on that going forward. We work with them on it. And they’re in a pretty good place with that. It's a matter of significant concern to us”.
