U.S. response to the killing of military personnel in Jordan

A few days ago, drones attacked a U.S. military base in Jordan. As a result of the strike, three military personnel were killed, and dozens more were injured.

Following this, U.S. President Joe Biden stated that Iran was responsible for the attack, as the military was hit with Iranian weapons.

He also added that he had already decided how to respond to such a terrorist act.

Today, on February 2, The Wall Street Journal reported that the U.S. would launch strikes on Iranian targets in Syria and Iraq this weekend (February 3-4).
