Iran responsible for US embassy attack in Baghdad, says Trump




By Ismail Auwal

United States (US) President, Donald Trump, has accused Islamic Republic of Iran of masterminding rocket attacks on US embassy in Baghdad on Sunday.

According to Trump, the US embassy “got hit Sunday by several rockets.”

He added that, “three tickets failed to launch,” while displaying their picture and blamed Iran for being the source of the missiles.

Trump who disclosed this news on his verified Twitter handle further warned that, “Now we hear chatter of additional attacks on Americans in Iraq. Some friendly health advice to Iran: if one American is killed, I will hold Iran responsible”.

The latest attack might escalate the existing tension between the two countries.

Iran’s president on Wednesday had described Donald Trump as a “madman”, and has likened him to former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

The Iranian president predicted that the American president would suffer a fate similar to the late Baathist leader, who was hanged in a Baghdad prison 14 years ago.
