Iran’s Revolutionary Guards claimed responsibility for the missile attack on Iraq’s Irbil, claiming that it was a strike against Israeli strategic centers in the city. The latest iran ballistic missile attack iraq comes amid renewed talks between world powers and Iran to revive the nuclear deal signed in 2015.
World powers and Iran had put off the talks due to a last-minute demand by Russia. In response, Iran launched the attack on Irbil, which it says was an “attempt to target Israeli military sites.”

In a statement, the Revolutionary Guards said they would not tolerate any attacks by Israel against its allies. The Iranian-backed militias have been threatening the United States for months now.
This latest incident comes on the heels of the death of two Iranian members of the IRGC in Syria and a U.S. airstrike in Iraq earlier this week.
While the United States may not be able to do anything to prevent the Iranians from attacking the U.S., it may be difficult to avoid a conflict in the region. That’s why the United States and its allies should take measures to ensure their safety in the area.
In the past few months, the U.S. has stepped up its military presence in the region in response to an attack by Iran, but this time the missile strike has come at a very poor time.
Since Iran has been increasingly reliant on its proxies for support and weapons, the United States must be very careful in its policy in the area. If the missiles are fired, it may end up causing more harm than good.
The U.S. has already taken action against the Iranians, but the latest attacks have yet to be confirmed. The Iranians are also targeting Israel. They may be using these attacks to threaten the Israelis, and it has been known to have been involved in attacks on other countries.
It is unknown how many missiles were used in the Irbil attack. It is possible that the U.S. military will respond to the new attack, but the embassy in Baghdad will most likely continue to condemn the move as a “terrorist act.”
A number of U.S. forces at the Irbil airport complex were targeted by Iranian-aligned militias. They have not been attacked in months. The incident also led to the suspension of negotiations between Iran and Saudi Arabia.
The IRGC has suspended its fifth round of talks, which had been scheduled to take place on Wednesday. The halted talks have led to the crisis in the Middle East.
According to the United States, the Iranian missiles that hit the Irbil bases were not specifically targeting U.S. troops, but rather the U.S. government is blaming Iran for the attacks.
The Iraqi government has been accused of a terrorist act. The US Embassy in Baghdad is also blaming Iran for the attack. While the U.S. military has not confirmed any charges, it has said that it is responsible for the strike.
The US government said that no American servicemen were killed during the attack, but more than 100 were injured. Several of them were hospitalized with concussions and traumatic brain injuries.
The Pentagon also blamed Iran for mistakenly shooting down the Ukrainian International Airlines Flight 752, which killed 176 people. The attack in Iraq will cause further repercussions on U.S. relations with Iran.
Iran has not confirmed any of the claims. The incident was captured on video by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.
However, it is not yet known if there were any victims of the attack. As of Sunday, armed forces affiliated with Iran have been attacking US forces in the airport complex in Erbil.
The US has blamed these armed groups for the attacks. The incident will continue unless the US takes action.
