The US has promised a 'consequential' response to a deadly drone attack on a US base in Jordan, which it has blamed on Iran-backed proxies. The attack killed three US servicemembers and injured dozens more. Meanwhile, the United Nations has warned of 'catastrophic' consequences if aid funding to Gaza is cut. The US says an umbrella group of Iran-backed militants, including Kataib Hezbollah, was responsible for the drone attack.
The 'attribution that our intelligence community is comfortable with is that this was done by the umbrella group' Islamic Resistance in Iraq, according to National Security Council spokesman John Kirby.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has stated that efforts are underway to get hostages back, but did not provide details on the process. 'It's too early to say how it will take place, but efforts are being made in these days, in these moments, these very hours,' Netanyahu said.
This is a real effort... It's too early to say how it will take place, but efforts are being made in these days, in these moments, these very hours,' the statement said.
