White House’s Kirby says US could have tiered response to attack in Jordan

John Kirby, the White House National Security Council spokesperson, said that Washington could have a tiered response that includes multiple actions in response to the drone attack that killed three US troops in Jordan on Sunday.

Kirby added that the Biden administration sees the potential of an extended pause in Israel’s war in Gaza. White House national security advisor Jake Sullivan met on Tuesday with visiting officials from Qatar to further discuss a possible deal between Israel and Hamas.
