Outraged by reports of another rocket attack on an Iraqi airbase. I pray for speedy recovery of the injured and call on the Government of #Iraq to hold those responsible for this attack on the Iraqi people accountable.— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) January 12, 2020
"I pray for the immediate recovery of the wounded and demand the Iraqi government accountable for those responsible for the attack on the Iraqi people," he said.
According to reports from news organizations, Mike Pompeo further said that those who are not loyal to the Iraqi government must end the violations of Iraq's sovereignty.
It is thought that four local soldiers were injured in rocket attacks on the Al-Balad Airport in Baghdad, Iraq, last day.
