United States President Donald Trump has blamed Iran for a rocket attack on the US embassy in Baghdad and threatened a military response if any Americans are killed.
An Iraqi military statement said an “an outlawed group” launched eight rockets targeting the Green Zone injuring one Iraqi security person manning a checkpoint and causing material damage to a residential complex and some cars.
Our embassy in Baghdad got hit Sunday by several rockets. Three rockets failed to launch. Guess where they were from: IRAN. Now we hear chatter of additional attacks against Americans in Iraq… pic.twitter.com/0OCL6IFp5M
