Approximately six rockets fired at the green zone in Baghdad, Iraq, where several US forces are stationed; US President Donald Trump responded with a serious warning to Iran and their proxies.
United States President Donald Trump has issued another strong warning to Iran and their proxies in the Middle East after several rockets were fired at the green zone in Baghdad, Iraq, on Sunday. No casualties were reported in the attack(s) that were carried out after Iran vowed a decisive response to the killing of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force Commander Qassem Soleimani by a US drone-at the command of President Trump.
Not only was Soleimani killed, but at least two other high-ranking IRGC officials were killed in strikes over the weekend. Trump responded to the attacks, tweeting, “These Media Posts will serve as notification to the United States Congress that should Iran strike any U.S. person or target, the United States will quickly & fully strike back, & perhaps in a disproportionate manner.” His mention of congress came after several democratic political figures complained that he didn’t notify congress before killing Soleimani.
While no casualties were reported in the attack, reports do indicate that one civilian family suffered several injuries. The US is holding Iranian proxy Kata’ib Hezbollah responsible for the strikes.
