Is the US and Iran inching closer to a direct confrontation?
The United States is promising what it calls a “very consequential” response to a drone attack that killed three of its troops in Jordan and wounded more than forty others.
US officials say the strike on Sunday hit a military outpost known as Tower 22, near the border with Syria.
According to media reports, the enemy drone wasn’t shot down because it may have been mistaken for a US drone flying in the area.
US officials blame Iran-backed militants for the attack, though Iran denies being involved. Since the start of the Israel – Hamas war last October, there have been more 150 attacks on US forces in the Middle East
