France strongly condemns the attack targeting U.S. troops fighting Daesh along the border between Syria and Jordan. Three American soldiers were killed and several dozen others were injured. France offers its sincere condolences to the families of the three victims and wishes those who were injured a speedy recovery.
France expresses its absolute solidarity with the United States, with whom it has been combatting Daesh in the region since 2014.
By fueling the escalation of violence in a concerning way, these attacks threaten the stability of the entire region. Those responsible must be held accountable for their actions.
Once again, we are issuing a warning to anyone who may be counting on tensions escalating in the region.
France will continue to stand with the countries in the region in the fight against terrorism.
