The Iranian Foreign Secretary rejected the accusations of US President Donald Trump on Thursday, saying Iran was behind the recent rocket attack on the US Embassy in Baghdad.
“Putting your own citizens at risk abroad won’t divert attention from catastrophic failures at home,” Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted.
Trump, without giving evidence, said on Twitter on Wednesday that the rockets that landed in Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone on Sunday, in an attack targeting the U.S. Embassy, were from Iran and “we hear chatter of additional attacks against Americans in Iraq.”
“Some friendly health advice to Iran: If one American is killed, I will hold Iran responsible. Think it over,” Trump said.
The Iraqi military attributed the attack to an “illegal group,” and the attack caused minor losses.
A senior government official told Reuters that senior U.S. national security officials agreed to a series of proposals to Trump on Wednesday aimed at stopping attacks on U.S. military or diplomatic personnel in Iraq, but did not describe the contents of the program or say Whether the plan is included. Military action.
