Bombing Iran US Embassy

President Trump Tells Iran “Think it Over”, U.S. Embassy Targeted

President Donald Trump tweeted a photo on Wednesday of rockets that were aimed at the US Embassy in Baghdad and fired from Iran.

The attack came on Sunday and Trump said that three of the rockets failed to launch and mentioned additional chatter of more attacks.

“..Some friendly health advice to Iran: If one American is killed, I will hold Iran responsible. Think it over,” said President Trump.

The Iran-backed group, Kataib Hezbollah (KH), went a step further by condemning the attack as “indiscriminate.”

“The bombing of the embassy of evil at this time is an uncontrolled act, and the relevant authorities should follow up and arrest the perpetrators,” said KH in a statement published in local Iraqi media Monday.

“We condemn the indiscriminate shelling of the military barracks of the American Embassy because it is a real threat to civilian lives,” it said.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed the attack on pro-Iran Shi’ite militias, calling for the support of Iraqi people in “their government’s efforts to reinforce Iraq’s sovereignty.”

“The same militias targeting diplomatic facilities are stealing Iraqi state resources on a massive scale, attacking peaceful protesters and activists, and engaging in sectarian violence,” said Pompeo, adding that no Americans were harmed.

Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi this week called the attack an act of terror, declaring that a number of suspects had already been arrested.

“Yesterday’s bombing of the Green Zone is a cowardly act of terrorism, and the missiles landed on Iraqis and wounded them, and we will not accept any attack on diplomatic missions,” he said.
