Trump, Rubio say Iran “fully responsible” for attack on U.S. Embassy in Iraq

Shortly after Sen. Marco Rubio (R) held Iran directly responsible conducting the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq, where dozens of Iraqi Shiite militiamen and supporters stormed the compound, President Donald Trump echoed the senator from Florida, saying that the Iranian regime would be held “fully responsible.”

“Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will,” stated Trump “Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible. In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified!”

The act of aggression against the embassy stems from a U.S. airstrike that killed 25 Shiite fighters in response to the Iranian-supported attack that killed an American contractor.

All embassy personnel, including the U.S. Ambassador, have been evacuated.

This story is developing.
