Pentagon says US is not seeking a war with Iran, ‘but we will take action’

The Pentagon says it does not believe that Iran is seeking a war with the United States, and that Washington does not want a war either, a day after an Iran-backed group killed three US soldiers and wounded dozens more in Jordan.

Pentagon spokesperson Sabrina Singh blames Iran for enabling groups attacking the United States and says the latest attack carries the “footprints” of Iran-backed Kataib Hezbollah.

“We don’t seek war, but we will take action, and respond to attacks on our forces,” Singh says.
