United States President Joe Biden said on Wednesday that Washington will be forced to respond in case the attacks on American troops currently positioned in the Middle East continue, APA reports citing Teletrader.
"We have had troops in the region since 9/11 to go after Isis... having nothing to do with Israel at all. My warning to the Ayatollah [Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei] was, if he continues to move against those troops, we will respond. It has nothing to do with Israel," Biden noted.
Earlier today, the Iranian supreme leader accused Washington of orchestrating Israel's attacks on Gaza, calling the US a "definite accomplice of criminals."
