Iraq’s President, Barham Saleh denounces Iran missile strikes

Iraqi’s President, Barham Saleh on Wednesday condemned Iran’s missile strikes which targetted Iraqi airbases where US and other foreign troops are based, saying he feared “dangerous developments” in the region.

He released a statement via his office saying;

“We denounce the Iranian missile bombing that hit military installations on Iraqi territory and renew our rejection of the repeated violation of state sovereignty and the transformation of Iraq into a battlefield for warring sides.”

The Iran government launched the missiles early Wednesday in response to the killing of senior Revolution Guards commander Qasem Soleimani in a US drone strike in Iraq last week.
