US warns after double attacks within 24 hours on Its bases

The US State Department condemned, on Tuesday, the two attacks on its forces in Syria and Iraq within less than 24 hours after three months of pausing.

“We find it especially troubling that this militia group chose to resume its attacks against US personnel just hours after Prime Minister Sudani of Iraq had completed a successful visit to Washington, so it seems clear that Iran has no respect for Iraqi sovereignty.” The US Department of State spokesperson, Mathew Miller, said in a press briefing.

Asked if Washington links the attacks directly to Iran, the Spokesperson said, “These (factions) are proxy groups that are sponsored by Iran, absolutely,” warning, “We have made quite clear to Iran, we’ve made quite clear to Iran’s proxy groups that we will defend our interests, we will defend our personnel, and that continues to be the case.

On Saturday, a massive explosion at a military base in Iraq killed a member of an Iraqi security force .

The force commander said it was an attack while the army said it was investigating and that there were no warplanes in the sky at the time. The US military denied involvement
