Donald Trump threatens Iran with retaliation after its embassy in Baghdad is attacked with rockets

The United States President Donald Trump warned Iran on Wednesday expressing he would keep the Islamic Republic accountable “if 1 American is killed” in rocket attacks in Iraq.

Getting to Twitter, President Trump blamed Tehran for the rocket assaults on the American Embassy in Baghdad. Just after a meeting with senior officials at the White Dwelling, President Trump claimed that Iran was at the rear of rocket assaults on the American Embassy in Baghdad on Sunday.

“Now we hear chatter of added assaults in opposition to People in Iraq,” he included, before providing “some helpful health advice to Iran: if a person American is killed, I will keep Iran responsible. Think it over”.

The most current attacks in Iraq killed at minimum one particular Iraqi civilian and ruined the embassy compound. The attacks come at a time when tensions are expanding tensions in between the United States and Iran amidst the past days of Trump’s presidency. 

Secretary of Condition Mike Pompeo had by now pointed the finger at Iran and the US Central Command that covers the location also explained that the rocket assault was just about absolutely conducted by an Iranian-backed rogue militia group.

“The United States will maintain Iran accountable for the deaths of any Us citizens that outcome from the do the job of these Iranian-backed rogue militia groups,” US Central Command included.

Iran rejects US allegations, asks Trump administration not to provoke

In the meantime, Iran has dismissed the allegations manufactured by the US and responded to US authorities on Monday inquiring not to provoke “tensions”. Iran Overseas Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh condemned the hottest rocket attack in a tweet on December 21, refuting US accusations saying that the allegations are getting designed to create tensions.

Apparently, in January this yr, President Trump experienced purchased the drone attack to destroy the impressive Iranian general and IRGC Quds Drive commander Qasem Soleimani in Baghdad in retaliation to the equivalent assault from Iranian-backed militias towards US property in Iraq. Iran had also elevated the pink flag of doom above its tallest mosque symbolising that a war with the US was coming. The latest attacks on US embassy may well cause a comparable retaliation from the US towards Iranian-militia in Iraq.

The latest tensions also arrive at the backdrop of renewed talks amongst Iran and the United States more than the situation of the nuclear offer. The outgoing President Trump has been incredibly harsh in terms of his plan in direction of Iran. Nevertheless, President-elect Joe Biden has expressed his willingness to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear accord, from which Trump administration pulled out in 2018. Any assaults on Iran by the US now would make the peace talks among the two international locations unlikely.
