Jordan condemns terrorist attack on border with Syria


Jordan has condemned the terrorist attack on a military advance post just inside its border with Syria that killed three US military members and injured 34 others.

Minister of Information and official spokesman for the government, Dr. Muhannad Moubaideen, expressed condolences to the United States, and stressed that Jordan will continue to confront the threat of terrorism across the Syrian border and confront anyone who attempts to attack the security of the country.

Jordan had previously announced it was cooperating with its partners to secure the borders, and had asked the US and other allies to provide it with the necessary military systems and equipment to increase the capabilities to secure the borders and confront the dangers across them.

During a campaign event in South Carolina, US President Joe Biden said they will "hold all those responsible to account at a time and in a manner of our choosing."

Meanwhile, Iran's mission to the United Nations said in a statement on Monday that Tehran was not involved in the attack.

"Iran had no connection and had nothing to do with the attack on the U.S. base," the mission said in a statement published by the state news agency IRNA.
