The United States Ambassador to the Hashemite kingdom of Jordan, Yael Lempert, has issued a statement condemning the attack against US forces on the border between Jordan and Syria, and expressed condolences for the loss of three US personnel.

“I mourn the loss of three U.S. service members and pray for their families and the swift recovery of those injured in the unmanned aerial system attack,” the statement said.

“Our fallen service members put their lives on the line to defend the United States and to ensure the safety of our allies and partners in the fight against terrorism,” she added, “Their sacrifice will be forever honored by this Embassy.”

The embassy reaffirmed the United States' commitment to continue working closely with Jordan to assist in addressing security challenges on the border and to support joint efforts to achieve security and peace.

“The U.S.-Jordan partnership is a bedrock of stability and security in this region, and our strong bilateral security cooperation is a pillar of our relationship.”
