Biden Weighs Response To Attack That Killed 3 U.S. Troops

A drone attack killed three US service members and wounded more than 30 others at an outpost in Jordan on Sunday, marking the first time US troops have been killed by enemy fire in the Mideast since the start of the Gaza war, Helen Regan, Christian Edwards, Antoinette Radford and Aditi Sangal reported for CNN.

The attack comes after weeks of efforts to keep the Israel-Hamas conflict from spreading further through the region.


US President Joe Biden blamed Iran-backed militant groups and vowed to hold them responsible, stating, "We shall respond." Iran distanced itself from the attack and claimed "regional resistance" groups do not take orders from Tehran.
