Iran’s mission to the United Nations stated in a press release on Monday (Jan 29) that Tehran was not concerned in an assault that killed three United States service members in northeastern Jordan close to the Syrian border.
In a press release revealed by the state information company IRNA, the mission stated: “Iran had no connection and had nothing to do with the assault on the US base.”
It added: “There’s a battle between US forces and resistance teams within the area, which reciprocate retaliatory assaults.”
US President Biden blamed Iran-backed groups for the unmanned aerial drone attack on US forces, the primary lethal strike in opposition to forces for the reason that Israel-Hamas battle erupted in October and despatched shock waves all through the Center East.
The assault is a significant escalation of the already tense scenario within the Center East, the place battle broke out in Gaza after an assault by Palestinian militant group Hamas on Israel on Oct 7.
