US warns on possible 'imminent threats' to US forces in Iraq


The US military said on Tuesday that there were possible imminent threats to US troops in Iraq, who were now at a high level of alert, and underscored concerns about Iranian-backed forces in the region, Reuters reported.

“(The US mission) is now at a high level of alert as we continue to closely monitor credible and possibly imminent threats to US forces in Iraq,” said Navy Captain Bill Urban, a spokesman at the US military’s Central Command, as he sought to clarify contradictory remarks by a British commander earlier on Tuesday.
