In a tweet, the US Secretary of State accused Iran of being involved in last night’s attacks in Iraq, which Iraqi officials and socio-political currents see as an American conspiracy to stay in Iraq.
According to reports EconomyNews “Iranian-backed militants have once again recklessly attacked Baghdad and wounded Iraqi civilians,” US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted Monday, according to ISNA. The Iraqi people deserve to prosecute these aggressors. “These criminals must end their destabilizing actions.”
Last night, 11 Katyusha rockets hit the Green Zone of Baghdad, where the US Embassy is located. Following the attacks, US embassy C_RAM air defense systems were activated and US helicopters flew over the area.
Several buildings and vehicles were damaged in last night’s attack, which took place at around 9pm Baghdad time.
Pompeo blamed “Iranian-linked militias” for the recent attacks and similar attacks on the US embassy, which Iraqi officials and commanders of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces have called suspicious and stressed that the attacks were planned by the United States itself. Somehow justify the stay of American forces in Iraq.
