Iran has announced to respond to any threat from the US. On Wednesday, Hossein Salami, head of the country’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), said that no threat will pass.

Three soldiers were killed in a drone attack on a US military base in Jordan. About 40 people were injured. The Pentagon blamed Iran-backed armed groups for Sunday’s attack.

US President Joe Biden said that Iran must take responsibility for this attack as a supplier of weapons. The Democratic president, who is under political pressure in the country, also said that he has decided to respond to the killing of US soldiers.

IRGC chief said, “We are hearing threats from American officials. We tell them, they have already tested us. And we know each other now. No threat will pass.
In 2020, IRGC Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani was killed in a US drone strike while leaving Baghdad airport in Iraq. In response to this attack, Iran launched a missile attack on the US Ain al-Assad base in Iraq.

Iran’s ambassador to the United States, Amir Sayed Eravani, warned yesterday that Iran will respond strongly to any attack on Iranian territory or interests or any Iranian citizen outside the country.

Biden’s decision to respond
A day before Iranian officials issued a warning, President Biden said he had decided how to respond to a drone attack by an Iranian-backed Iraqi group on a military base in Jordan. However, Biden did not say anything in detail about this.

Biden met with top advisers at the White House on Tuesday to determine what the response to the attack on US forces in Jordan would be. He then left for Florida on Air Force One to participate in the election campaign.

On this day, reporters asked Biden whether he had decided how to respond to the attack. In response, Biden said, “Yes.” When asked whether Iran was responsible for the incident, Biden said, “They (Iran) are supplying weapons to those who carried out the attack.” From that place I will hold them responsible.

Biden also said, “I don’t think there is a need to stop a large-scale war in the Middle East.” I don’t want anything like that.’

White House National Security Council spokesman John Curbio was with Biden yesterday. Curb also spoke to reporters while sitting on Air Force One. He hinted that the US could respond multiple times.

“It is fair to expect that we will respond in an appropriate manner,” Karby told reporters. And most likely you will see multidimensional action. Not just once, but definitely more than once will be answered.’

Several IRGC officers were killed in Syria by Israeli strikes. Among them, five people were killed in an attack on January 20 and two more in another attack on December 25.

Iran’s semi-official news agency Tasnim reported that Israel attacked an “Iranian military advisory center” in Syria last Monday. Two were killed. However, Iran’s ambassador to Syria denied it and said that the victims of the attack were not Iranian citizens.

Iran attacked Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan on January 15. The IRGC claimed that an “office” of the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad was targeted there.

“No more attacks on US forces”
An Iraqi armed group called ‘Islamic Resistance’ claimed responsibility for the attack on the US military base in Jordan. The group is believed to have ties to Iran-backed Iraqi Kataib Hezbollah.

Kataib Hezbollah has announced a moratorium on attacks against US forces amid rumors of possible US retaliatory strikes. The armed group announced this last Tuesday.

Kataib Hezbollah claimed that this decision was made out of the desire to save the Iraqi government from an “embarrassing” situation. This shows some truth in the suspicions of the United States about the involvement of the armed group in the attack.
