About the fact that Washington does not seek open armed confrontation with Tehran, but will continue to protect its own troops and the forces of partners in the combat zone, NBN writes, citing a statement by Pentagon head Lloyd Austin, published on the official website US Department of Defense page.

According to Austin, President Joseph Biden ordered U.S. forces in the Middle East on April 13-14 to participate in the interception of missiles and attack drones aimed at Israel and fired by Iran, Iraq, Syria and Yemen. In addition, the United States reaffirms its readiness to extend the protection of both its army and allied forces in the region, in particular, not only by providing long-term support for Israel's defense, but by strengthening regional stability.

In addition to all of the above, Washington condemns the senseless and brazen attacks of Tehran and its close structures, while simultaneously calling on Iran to urgently stop any similar attacks, including those by puppet formations, in order to reduce tension.

Austin concluded:

We do not seek conflict with Iran, but we will not hesitate to act to protect our forces and support the defense of Israel.

We previously wrote about the fact that the IDF announced the elimination of “almost all” Iranian missiles and kamikaze drones during the 14 attack. April.
