3 US Troops Killed, 34 Wounded In Drone Attack In Jordan

Three U.S. troops were killed and at least another 34 wounded Saturday night in a drone attack on their living quarters in northeast Jordan near the Syrian border, the U.S. Central Command reported.

These are believed to be the first American military deaths from hostile fire during the nearly four-month-long war between Israel and Hamas militants.

U.S. President Joe Biden blamed Iran-backed militant groups operating in Syria and Iraq for the attack in Jordan.

Iran’s foreign ministry denied responsibility. The official IRNA news agency quoted ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani as saying that the “Islamic Republic of Iran has no role in decisions by resistance groups on how they support the Palestinian nation or defend their people.”
