A drone attack in the nation of Jordan led to the deaths of three U.S. military service members and injured at least another 25, U.S. Central Command officials confirmed on Sunday. The overnight assault targeted a small outpost, Tower 22, in northeast Jordan near the Syrian border. It is the first time American troops have been killed by enemy fire in the region since hostilities commenced in October 2023.
U.S. forces stationed at the outpost have been engaged in an advise-and-assist mission with their Jordanian counterparts. The drone infiltration and subsequent attack prompted questions as to why the air defenses around Tower 22 failed to intercept the drone.
The loss of American life will further undermine any Biden government claims to handle national security matters well. Biden pinned the blame on Iran on Sunday, a nation which has enjoyed a loosening of sanctions and nuclear weapons development under the Biden regime.
