On December 31, 2019 local time, hundreds of Iraqi demonstrators stormed the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, protesting the previous U.S. air strikes in Iraq. Protesters wrote close in the name of the people signs on the outer walls of the embassy, smashed doors and windows, and lit a guard tower at the embassy fence. They then broke into the embassy compound and clashed with guards who fired tear gas. To stop the demonstration, the US military also took action, dropping flares from the plane and firing tear gas.

After the incident, President trump of the United States sent a continuous message on a social platform, saying that Iran was fully responsible for the attack on the US embassy in Iran. Iran condemned Washingtons accusations as reckless and warned the United States to reconsider its policies in the region. Iraqi President Saleh and caretaker Prime Minister Abdul Mehdi all called on the demonstrators to leave the US embassy.

It is reported that the reason for the demonstration is that on December 29, the United States Air raided a number of military facilities of Hezbollah brigades, a Shiite paramilitary organization Pro Iran in Iraq and Syria, killing at least 25 members of the organization. The United States believes that the Hezbollah brigade is responsible for the recent attacks on US bases in Iraq and the death of an American arms contractor.
