A drone attack in a US base, Jordan has killed three US troops and left 25 others injured.
This was confirmed by the US Central Command (Centcom) in a statement which said the casualties were caused by a drone attack at a base in northeast Jordan, near the Syria border.
“On January 28, three US service members were killed and 25 injured from a one-way attack (drone) that impacted at a base in northeast Jordan, near the Syria border,” said Centcom.
But US President Joe Biden said that the attack was carried out by radical Iran-backed militant groups.

“While we are still gathering the facts of this attack, we know it was carried out by radical Iran-backed militant groups operating in Syria and Iraq,
“Have no doubt – we will hold all those responsible to account at a time and in a manner our choosing.
“Jill and I join the families and friends of our fallen – and Americans across the country – in grieving the loss of these warriors in this despicable and wholly unjust attack,” the statement said.
