The head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said yesterday that the country was “not looking for war,” appearing to signal that it would not escalate tensions with the U.S. But he also said that Iran was prepared to respond if attacked.

Here’s the latest.

“We hear threatening words from American officials,” Gen. Hossein Salami, the chief commander of the military organization, was quoted as saying by Iranian state news media. “You have tested us and we know each other — we will not leave any threat unanswered.”

Salami’s comments came after President Biden said that he had decided on a response to the weekend drone attack that killed three American soldiers and injured more than 40 others in Jordan. The U.S. said the strike came from an Iranian-backed militia in the region. Biden has not said what America’s response will be.

Iran has denied ordering attacks on U.S. forces, including the drone strike in Jordan. And in an apparent sign that Iran is trying to tamp down tensions, Kata’ib Hezbollah, the militia that the U.S. says was most likely behind the Jordan attack, said on Tuesday that it would suspend its military operations in Iraq. The surprise statement indicated that the militia had come under pressure from both Iran and Iraq.

West Bank: Anger and resentment are mounting in the territory, where Israelis and Palestinians live worlds apart but are often separated only by a single road — or roadblocks.
