U.S. President Joe Biden has picked Dana Stroul to lead the Pentagon’s Middle East desk, reported Al-Monitor.

Stroul, currently a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, was a senior official on the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, where she focused the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey.

Before that, she worked on Mideast policy at the Pentagon during the Obama administration.

In her latest role, Stroul will be tasked with handling the U.S. Department of Defense’s Middle East policy from Syria to Iran and other issues.
