United States Embassy in Iraq Attacked by Terrorists

The United States Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq is claiming that it was attacked by terrorists on Thursday.

Details are vague about what transpired but the embassy said the attack was an attempt to undermine the security of Iraq.

Attacks have escalated in the recent month against personnel in Iraq and Syria and witnesses have claimed that they heard the embassy’s defense system respond.

Earlier this month United States troops were targeted by two drones by Iranian backed forces trying to avenge the death of Iran’s top general, Qassem Soleimani.

Both of the drones approaching American forces were shot down.
