Fatal Drone Attack: Three US Service Members Killed in Jordan, Allegedly Backed by Iran

The attack on US service members in Jordan on Saturday night resulted in three deaths and 25 injuries, according to US Central Command (CENTCOM). This is the first time US troops have been killed by enemy fire in the Middle East since the start of the war in Gaza. The identities of the servicemembers will be withheld until 24 hours after their next of kin have been notified. President Joe Biden condemned the attack and blamed Iran-backed militias in Syria and Iraq. He expressed condolences to the families of the fallen service members and vowed to hold those responsible to account. The attack has been attributed to radical Iran-backed militant groups operating in the region.
