“As President Biden has made clear, we will take all necessary steps to protect our people and will always respond at any time and place of our choice. No group will strike with impunity against our troops,” Austin said. .
He also said that all the wounded were treated on the spot, three of them were evacuated to the hospital of the Coalition forces in Iraq.
