“We have seen the reports of the missile attack today … As we told you after the tragic attack in Erbil, we are angry about the recent attacks,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said at a press conference today.

“As for the attack in Erbil, we are still working to determine who did that, but we confirmed previously that we will hold Iran responsible for the actions of the organizations associated with it, which launch attacks on the Americans,” Price added.

And he added: “With regard to our response, it will be balanced, we ourselves will determine the timing and use the set of tools in the place and at the time that we will choose. We will not explode anger and create a risk of escalation, because it makes Iran profit and contributes to its attempt to destabilize Iraq further. Any response will be taken in coordination with Partners in Iraq and the International Coalition. “

The US State Department spokesman stressed that the missiles, which were used in the recent attacks, were manufactured in Iran and transferred to Iraq.

During the past months, the bases where the US forces are stationed have been subject to a series of attacks, accusing Washington of the “Popular Mobilization” factions linked to Iran of being behind them.

Earlier in the day, 3 “Katyusha” missiles fell in the vicinity of the Green Zone in central Baghdad, which hosts foreign diplomatic missions and government agencies’ headquarters, resulting in a number of wounded.

Last week, the Erbil International Airport complex in the Kurdistan region of Iraq was attacked, killing a contractor who was working with US forces at a military base at the site.
