Trump issues a stern warning to Iran

US President Donald Trump issued a stern warning to Iran, after targeting the US embassy in Iraq with a number of missiles.

Trump wrote on Twitter: “Our embassy in Baghdad was hit by several missiles on Sunday, guess where they came from: Iran. Now we hear talk of additional attacks against Americans in Iraq.”

He concluded his speech with an explicit threat to Iran: “Some friendly advice to Iran: If an American is killed, I will hold Iran responsible. Think carefully.”

Sources revealed that the administration of the outgoing US President Donald Trump has studied the closure of the US embassy in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, due to the attacks on the past period.

The American Axios website suggested the possibility of transferring the American ambassador to Iraq, Matthew Toller, to the capital of the Kurdistan Region, Erbil, or to the Al-Assad air base in western Iraq, in the event that he leaves Baghdad.

This option comes within the options being developed by the US administration to respond to the repeated missile attacks from Iran on the US embassy in Iraq. Source
