It was such a long day to end the year with! in this thread I’ll describe what I’ve seen today briefly about the attack against @USEmbBaghdad by Shia militias supporters. Read our story with @LizSly washingtonpost.com/world/iran-bac…
The tension between those groups and the US is way back before the last US attack against KH bases western Iraq and Syria, it’s linked to the tension between US and Iran and increased recently on October when the #IraqProtests anti Iran started.
Those groups considered the protests as conspiracy act by the United States because it’s threatening the Iranian influence in Iraq, they even described the protesters as “American Joker gangs”
