WASHINGTON: The drone attack that killed three U.S. troops on the border between Jordan and Syria is the latest in a series of attacks on U.S. troops in the region.

Since the outbreak of war in Gaza, there have been hundreds of attacks on U.S. troops, but no troops have died as a result.

But the recent attack on Tower 22 base resulted in the deaths of three U.S. soldiers. Key officials in the U.S. have vowed revenge strikes against those responsible for the drone strike.

President Joe Biden

“The three American service members we lost were patriots in the highest sense. And their ultimate sacrifice will never be forgotten by our nation … We will carry on their commitment to fight terrorism. And have no doubt – we will hold all those responsible to account at a time and in a manner of our choosing.”

Donald Trump

“The drone attack on a U.S. Military Installation in Jordan, killing 3 American service members, and wounding many more, marks a horrible day for America”.

Lloyd Austin, US Defense Secretary:

“Iran-backed militias are responsible for these continued attacks on U.S. forces, and we will respond at a time and place of our choosing.”

Micheal McCaul, Republican U.S. House Foreign Affairs Panel Chair

“We need a major reset of our Middle East policy to protect our national security interests and restore deterrence.”

Mike Johnson, U.S. House Speaker

“America must send a crystal clear message across the globe that attacks on our troops will not be tolerated.”

Nikki Haley, Republican presidential candidate

“What they should be doing is going after every ounce of production of those missiles. Wherever those missile sites are, you take that out. You take out the training sites… You go after the leaders making the decisions. It’s not after Iran the country.”
