On 28 January 2024, suspected Iran-backed militias conducted a drone attack on a U.S. military logistics outpost — known as Tower 22 — located in northeastern Jordan near the Syrian and Iraqi borders. The drone is believed to have originated from Syria. At least three U.S. military personnel were killed and 34 more were injured in the assault. Jordanian officials announced that no members of the Jordanian military were injured in what has been condemned as a terrorist attack. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack; Iranian officials have specifically denied any involvement.
