Written by on December 24, 2020

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.

IN SUNDAY’S ATTACK, A VOLLEY OF ROCKETS HIT THE US EMBASSY IN BAGHDAD’S HEAVILY FORTIFIED GREEN ZONE, IRAQ’S MILITARY SAID, SPARKING FEARS OF RENEWED UNREST.

AN IRAQI MILITARY STATEMENT SAID AN “AN OUTLAWED GROUP” LAUNCHED EIGHT ROCKETS HITTING THE GREEN ZONE, INJURING ONE IRAQI SECURITY OFFICER DAMAGING CARS AND A RESIDENTIAL COMPLEX.

IN RESPONSE, IRAN’S FOREIGN MINISTER MOHAMMAD JAVAD ZARIF SAID IN A TWEET DIRECTED AT TRUMP: “PUTTING YOUR OWN CITIZENS AT RISK ABROAD WON’T DIVERT ATTENTION FROM CATASTROPHIC FAILURES AT HOME.” HE PUT IMAGES OF TRUMP’S SIX PREVIOUS TWEETS, FROM WHEN BARACK OBAMA WAS PRESIDENT, NEXT TO EACH OTHER.
