US senator claims Iran had role in Baghdad embassy storming

TEHRAN, Dec. 31 (MNA) – In line with the hawkish policies of the United States against the Islamic Republic, Floridan Senator Marco Rubio has put the blame on Iran for the ongoing protests by angry Iraqi demonstrators against the US embassy in Iraq.

“Iran is directly responsible for orchestrating the storming of the US Embassy in Iraq and must be held accountable for it and the safety of every American serving there,” Rubio tweeted on Tuesday.

Thousands of angry Iraqi demonstrators gathered outside the gates of the US diplomatic mission in Baghdad on Tuesday to condemn Washington’s fatal military aggression that targeted Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) on Monday.

The US air raids killed at least 25 PMU fighters from the Kata’ib Hezbollah faction and injured over 50 others in Anbar Province.

The demonstrators, outside the embassy, are chanting ‘Death to America’ and burning US flags. They are also holding up posters calling for the US mission to be shut down and for the parliament to order US forces to leave Iraq.
