Washington: America has taken strong revenge for the attack on its soldiers in Jordan. In retaliation, the US Army has destroyed 85 bases of Iran-backed militia (civilian fighters) and Iranian ‘Revolutionary Guard’ in Iraq and Syria in air strikes. Let us tell you that 3 American soldiers were killed and more than 40 soldiers were injured in a drone attack by an Iran-backed group in Jordan. America was shocked by this. President Joe Biden and other top US leaders have been warning for days that the US would retaliate against militia groups and made it clear that it would not be a single attack, but a tiered response over time.
After the US retaliatory strike, Biden issued a statement saying, “America does not want conflict in West Asia or anywhere in the world, but those who want to harm us should know this: If you harm an American, We will respond. Biden said last Sunday that three American soldiers were killed in a drone strike by terrorist groups supported by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) in Jordan. “This afternoon, at my direction, U.S. military forces targeted targets in Iraq and Syria that the IRGC and affiliated militia groups use to attack U.S. forces,” Biden said Friday.

US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said that the attacks were carried out on seven centers that the IRGC and allied militias use to attack US forces. “This is the beginning of our response,” he said. The President has directed additional action to hold the IRGC and affiliated militias accountable for their attacks on U.S. and coalition forces. “Strikes will be conducted at the times and places of our choosing,” Austin said. We do not want conflict in West Asia or anywhere else, but the President and I will not tolerate attacks on American forces. We will take any action necessary to defend America, our forces, and our interests.
