The State Department demanded that Baghdad find and punish those who attacked the base of Balad


The head of the US State Department Mike Pompeo called on the Iraqi authorities to strengthen the protection of military facilities in the country. In addition, he demanded to find and punish those responsible for the recent attack on the Balad air base, where American troops are stationed.


At the same time, Pompeo said that Washington was outraged by the announcement of another missile attack to which the base was subjected. Senior American official persuaded For several months, US President Donald Trump agreed to the killing of Iranian General Kassem Suleimani, called for an end to the violation of Iraq's sovereignty by groups disloyal to official Baghdad.

Outraged by reports of a new missile attack on the Iraqi air base. I pray for the speedy recovery of the wounded and call on the Iraqi government to hold accountable those responsible for this attack on the Iraqi people

- Pompeo wrote on his Twitter account.

It should be noted that the Iraqi Air Force base “Balad” is located in the province of Salah al-Din in the north of the country. On January 12, 2020, approximately five munitions for the MLRS were launched at the base. Moreover, as reported RIA News military source, no Americans were injured in the attack. Four Iraqi troops were injured.

We remind you that earlier the parliament of Iraq demanded withdraw US troops from the country.

    no Americans were injured in the attack.

    - And neither Pompeo was hurt, and in general ... - not a single American was injured ... - And in general ... - were these "five rounds of ammunition for MLRS" fired at the American base .. ??? -Such a "calm reaction" of the Americans to all this ... -Everything is somehow far-fetched ... -Well, what if tomorrow already "20 ammunition for MLRS" will arrive and already some of the Americans may suffer ... - Or the Americans are so sure that this will not happen (and therefore are so calm) .. because they themselves took part in the raid on their own base ...

    Interestingly, the Iraqi parliament would dare to demand to find and punish those responsible for the defeat of the state of Iraq on the basis of a test tube, either with washing powder or cocaine, which was shaken at the UN?
