UK foreign secretary flays attacks on US bases in Middle East


UK Foreign Secretary David Cameron condemned on Monday the attacks on US military forces in the Middle East and called on Iran to reduce tensions in the region.

On Sunday, the US Central Command said three US soldiers were killed and 25 were injured in a drone attack at a US military base in Jordan’s northeast, near the border with Syria.

US President Joe Biden pinned the blame on unspecified Iran-backed militant groups while also saying that the US was still gathering the facts. Later, Jordanian cabinet spokesman Muhannad Mubaidin said the strike targeted the US Al Tanf base in Syria rather than a base in Jordanian territory.

“We strongly condemn attacks by Iran-aligned militia groups against US forces.

We continue to urge Iran to de-escalate in the region,” Cameron said on X.

He also expressed condolences to the families of American soldiers who were killed or injured as a result of attacks on US military bases.
