US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday December 13th warned Iran or its proxies of harming US personnel or US partners in Iraq, as numerous attacks were launched against bases housing US troops.

Pompeo said, on his Twitter account, that the US would respond “decisively” in case any harm was caused.

This comes only a day after the Iraqi army said that two missiles landed on a military base near Baghdad International Airport, which houses US troops.

Pompeo deplored the “Iranian proxy attack” near the airport this week, which injured five Iraqi soldiers.
