Since October, US diplomats and troops across Iraq have been targeted by around three dozen missile attacks which Washington has blamed on pro Iranian armed factions.
In the first move of its kind, elite Iraqi samsung galaxy s7 edge hoesje troops in late June arrested more than a dozen Tehran backed fighters who were allegedly planning a new attack on Baghdad’s Green Zone, home to the US and other foreign embassies.
Iraqi government officials said the raid cover iphone 6 solo bordo would serve as a „message“ to cover custodia cover iphone 11 pro iphone 8 vr46 deter future attacks, but early on Sunday, militants made another attempt.

The move was hailed by US Secretary of State cover for iphone 5c uk Mike Pompeo, who cover samsung gt s7390 said rogue groups are „the single biggest obstacle to additional assistance or economic investment“ for Iraq.
„Baghdad’s actions are a step in the right direction and we applaud them,“ he said last week.
