“CWe consider that the level of tension is very alarming and that the time has come to take measures to defuse tensions”, said the Russian presidential spokesman regarding the risk of retaliation against Iran.

The Tehran regime is one of Moscow’s allies.

Dmitri Peskov added that adopting de-escalation measures “is the only way to prevent other conflicts, particularly in the Middle East, from spreading further”, according to the French agency AFP.

The drone attack on Sunday targeted a US logistics base in the middle of the Jordanian desert, on the border with Iraq and Syria.

The attack caused three deaths and dozens of injuries, according to the US army.

The United States promised on Monday to take appropriate reprisals, while Iran denied any involvement, in a volatile regional context due to the war between Israel and Hamas.

The President of the United States, Joe Biden, is under internal pressure to respond to the deaths of US military personnel, while avoiding causing a regional escalation.

The current war in the Middle East pits Israel and Hamas, and was triggered by an attack by the Palestinian extremist group on Israeli soil, on October 7th.

The war triggered a reaction from anti-Israeli movements, such as the Lebanese militia Hezbollah or the Yemeni Huthis, raising fears of the conflict spreading.
