Joe Biden Warns Iranian Supreme Leader Against Targeting US Troops In Iraq And Syria – Joe Biden Warns Iranian Leaders Against Targeting US Troops In Iraq, Syria
President Joe Biden has given a direct warning to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei against targeting US troops in Iraq and Syria. The White House on Thursday said after the attacks on American security forces in Iraq and Syria that this will not be tolerated at all.
According to Reuters report, White House spokesperson John Kirby’s comments come when US officials fear an increase in conflict in the Middle East after the terrorist Hamas group’s attack against Israel on October 7. In such a situation, the Pentagon has increased surveillance and deployed additional military personnel in the area.
The Pentagon said on Tuesday that US forces have been attacked more than a dozen times in Iraq and Syria in the last week. On Wednesday, Biden said he had warned the ayatollah that the United States would respond if the targeting of American forces continued, but did not say how the message was sent.
“I warned the Ayatollah that if he continues to advance against those troops, we will respond, and he should be prepared. This has nothing to do with Israel,” the president said in a press conference.
