Iran Aligned Militias in Iraq
MATTHEW MILLER, DEPATMENT SPOKESPERSON
The United States strongly condemns last night’s rocket attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and today’s attacks against facilities hosting U.S. personnel. The many Iran-aligned militias that operate freely in Iraq threaten the security and stability of Iraq, our personnel, and our partners in the region. Prime Minister Sudani rightly called these attacks acts of “terrorism.” We urge the Iraqi Security Forces to immediately investigate and arrest the perpetrators of these attacks and bring them to justice. The Iraqi Government has repeatedly committed to protect diplomatic missions as well as U.S. military personnel, who are present in the country at Iraq’s invitation. This is non-negotiable, as is our right to self-defense.
