The US State Department spokesman, Ned Price, held Iran responsible for the recent attacks on US forces and civilians in Iraq.
“Regarding the attack on Erbil, we are still working to determine what actually happened, and as we said earlier, we will hold Iran responsible for the actions of its proxies who attack Americans,” Price said in his daily press conference, Monday.
“The missiles recently fired at coalition forces and Iraqi civilians, including the recent attack on Erbil, were manufactured and supported by Iran,” Price added.
“As for our response, we will respond in a manner that is calculated according to our schedule, and we will use a set of tools at the time and place we choose, but what we will not do is attack and risk escalation that serves Iran and contributes to its attempts to further destabilize Iraq. As you heard me say, any response will be. In coordination with our Iraqi partners and the international coalition. “
Price also indicated that the ministry had seen reports that missiles had fallen on the area of the US embassy in Baghdad, on Monday. He reiterated that the United States was angry at the recent attacks.
“The security of American personnel and personnel is a priority, and the Iraqi people have suffered greatly and for a long time from this type of violence and this violation of their sovereignty,” he said.
Price denied that there was any update on the ongoing investigation into the Erbil attack, but he reiterated that “the United States will hold Iran responsible for the attacks and provocations carried out by its proxies. We know that many of these attacks involved Iranian weapons, but this remains subject to investigations.” As he says.
On Monday, a group of missiles targeted the US embassy in Baghdad, after the city of Erbil, in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, witnessed, in the middle of this month, a missile strike that killed a civilian contractor who was working with the international coalition forces.
