 Foreign media said the US embassy in Baghdad was attacked and the sound of explosion rang through Baghdad


The source confirmed that the explosion rang through the Iraqi capital, triggering security alerts in the U.S. embassy compound, but caused no casualties.

Reported that since October last year, Iraqs institutional facilities representing the interests of the United States have been subjected to more than 20 similar attacks. The United States believes that these attacks have been carried out by Iranian backed factions of Iraqi security forces. These attacks have resulted in the deaths of armed personnel from the United States, Britain and Iraq, and have seriously damaged relations between Baghdad and Washington.

But since Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa kadimi took power earlier this month, the United States and Iraq have been hoping to restart their relations, with bilateral talks scheduled for June. The negotiations are expected to set a framework for US forces in Iraq. These forces were sent to Iraq in 2014 to lead an alliance against the extremist group Islamic state.

Reported that these forces have become the eyesore of Iran and its allies in Iraq, and they firmly demand that US troops leave Iraq. Irans top leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, said on the 17th that the United States will not stay in Iraq or Syria, must withdraw its troops, and will certainly be driven away..

According to reports, the U.S. - led coalition has reduced its force in Iraq by more than 7500 this year, citing the reduced threat from the Islamic state organization and the increased difficulty in training Iraqi forces due to the spread of the new coronavirus.
