Iran again during Christmas week fired rockets at an American Embassy, and the President has a stern warning for them.
Posting on Twitter a photo of the purported rockets, Trump said that the “embassy in Baghdad got hit Sunday by several rockets.” He made the comments as he was traveling to Mar-a-Lago in Florida for Christmas.
“Three rockets failed to launch. Guess where they were from: IRAN. Now we hear chatter of additional attacks against Americans in Iraq,” Trump wrote.
Trump then warned: “Some friendly health advice to Iran: If one American is killed, I will hold Iran responsible. Think it over.”
I do not know the degree to which Iran is complicit,” Gen. Frank McKenzie told the Wall Street Journal Tuesday. “We do not seek a war, and I don’t actually believe they seek one either.”
However, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday said Iran-backed militias were behind the incident.
“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. No Americans were injured, he said.
