Baghdad condemns US strikes but ignores Iranian assault


Iraqi Foreign Ministry condemned on Friday the air strikes launched by the US and coalition forces against locations of Iran-backed militias in Iraq, while it ignored the earlier attack by these militias against US troops, which killed 2 Americans and a Briton.


US Central Command commander Frank McKenzie on Friday said the command has the "flexibility, capability and will to respond to any threat," referring to a possible Iranian retaliatory military action.

The US and anti-ISIS coalition forces on Thursday launched air strikes against locations for an Iranian-backed militia in Iraq, in response to an earlier attacks, allegedly by this militia against an Iraqi base housing US troops.

Iranian proxies' attacks killed two American soldiers and a British one.
