( – On Tuesday, President Biden stated that he had made a decision on the appropriate response to the drone attack in Jordan, which led to three U.S. service members losing their lives. 

Biden while talking to reporters before his campaign trip to Florida stated that he has decided on how to respond without triggering a widespread war in the region. However, he did not provide any details on what this decision entailed. Still, in his statement, he pointed out that the United States did not want the Middle East to end up having a wider war. A similar statement had been made on Tuesday by state officials who had argued that the United States did not want to end up in a war with Iran. 

Biden has been considering his different options for responding to the attack, and it is widely expected that there might be retaliatory strikes. However, it is not yet clear when the U.S. is going to respond to the drone attack. 

When asked if he had decided on how to respond to the attack, Biden argued that he had. 

Biden was also asked whether Iran was behind the attack, to which he responded that he held them responsible to an extent as they were the ones that supplied the weapons to those responsible for the attack. 

The drone attack resulted in at least 34 service members getting injured, while three U.S. service members died. The drone attack was made by Iran-backed militants in the region close to the Jordan-Syria border.
