Iranian-sponsored militias carried out another rocket attack on the US embassy in Baghdad, which led to a stern warning from the US president; Trump: Some friendly health advice to Iran: If one American is killed, I will hold Iran responsible. Think it over.
Following another rocket attack on the US embassy in Baghdad, Iraq earlier this week from Iranian-backed militias, US President Donald Trump issued a strong warning to the Islamic Republic amid its attempts to attack US personnel.
The president actually tweeted a photo of several failed rockets and said, “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…”
The attack came during a visit from high-ranking US military official, commander of CENTCOM, General Kenneth McKenzie. In concluding his tweet regarding the attack, Trump said, “Some friendly health advice to Iran: If one American is killed, I will hold Iran responsible. Think it over.”
The increased tension comes as the anniversary of General Qassem Soleimani’s death approaches on January 3rd. Both Israel and the United States have been strongly monitoring Iran and the region in the last couple of weeks.
