Iran denies its involvement in fatal drone attack on US soldiers in Jordan

Iran has rejected accusations from the US and Britain that it supported the militant groups responsible for a drone strike in Jordan that resulted in the deaths of three US military personnel.

Tehran’s official IRNA news agency quoted foreign ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani as saying that these claims are made with specific political goals to distort the realities of the region.

US President Joe Biden attributed the strike to “radical Iran-backed militant groups operating in Syria and Iraq.”

British Foreign Secretary David Cameron called on Iran to de-escalate in the region. Kanaani, in response, stated that such statements pose a threat to regional and international peace and stability.

The drone strike on a frontier base in Jordan marked the first US military losses since Israel began its offensive in Gaza after the October 7 attack by Hamas.

The incident has intensified political pressure on Biden to take direct action against Iran, a move he has been hesitant to make to avoid sparking a broader war.

Republicans are urging a decisive military response against Iran’s alleged involvement in the attack.
