Iran was not involved in Sunday's drone strike in Jordan near the border with Syria that killed three US soldiers and injured more than 30 others, the Iranian mission to the United Nations said on Monday.
In a press release from the official IRNA news agency on Monday, January 29, the Iranian mission to the United Nations assured that Tehran had “no connection to the attack on the American base.” “There is a conflict in the region between the US military and resistance groups responding to retaliatory attacks,” the Iranian mission added.
US President Joe Biden promised there would be a “response” to the attack, the first to cause the deaths of American soldiers, while attacks on American bases in the Middle East have increased since the start of the war between Israel and Hamas.
“While we are still gathering the facts about this attack, we know that it was carried out by radical militant groups backed by Iran and operating in Syria and Iraq,” Joe Biden said in a statement. “Have no doubt: we will hold all those responsible accountable at the time and in the manner we choose,” he added.
