A spokesperson for Iran’s Foreign Ministry called the U.S. president’s accusation “baseless” and "fabricated."
Anti-war campaigners are warning that U.S. President Donald #Trump is on the verge of launching a full-blown military conflict with #Iran after the lame-duck incumbent on Wednesday blamed the Middle East nation for a rocket attack on the American Embassy in #Baghdad over the weekend, an accusation Tehran rejected as “fabricated.”
“Our embassy in Baghdad got hit Sunday by several rockets. Three rockets failed to launch,” Trump tweeted late Wednesday afternoon, attaching a photo purporting to show the three rockets. “Guess where they were from: IRAN. Now we hear chatter of additional attacks against Americans in #Iraq.”
“Some friendly health advice to Iran: If one American is killed, I will hold Iran responsible,” the outgoing U.S. president added. “Think it over.”
