Some attackers of U.S. Embassy in Iraq had links to security services

BAGHDAD — In an interview, Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani described the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq and Erbil Airport as “terrorist acts.”

Al-Sudani declared that the government and its security services are pursuing the perpetrators, pointing out that the government will not tolerate it because it concerns the stability of Iraq.

Yahya Rasul, spokesman for Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani, announced that some attackers who fired rockets at the U.S. Embassy last week, amid high tensions over the Israel-Hamas war, had links to security services.

The U.S. Ambassador to Baghdad Alina Romanowski commended the Iraqi efforts regarding the arrest of some attackers of the U.S. Embassy.

She stressed that the U.S. is committed to close coordination with the Iraqi government to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to justice.

Last week, the U.S. Embassy in Iraq was subjected to a rocket attack. The U.S. accused the pro-Iranian militia of carrying out the attack.
