Shafak News / The US envoy to Iran, Brian Hook, said that his country will continue to respond to any attacks targeting US interests in the region, noting that the US military is in Iraq at the request of the government, and there are American military forces in some bases to help the Iraqis In the fight against terrorism.

Hook said in an interview with Al Hurra, that Washington would not tolerate Iranian lawlessness in the region and in Iraq, which does not care about his interests but wants to dominate it.

Hook stressed the need to deter Iranian terrorist acts in the Gulf region, and the need to impose sanctions on Tehran, especially because of the killing that it practiced against its people.

He revealed that US Defense Secretary Mark Asper had informed the Iraqi side before launching strikes on the locations of the Hezbollah Brigades in Iraq, noting that these strikes enhance Iraqi security against the attacks of some Iranian militias, which have also killed a number of Iraqi soldiers recently.

Hook noted that the Iranian regime is facing the worst economic crisis in 2019, and in 2020 it will face a more difficult period, noting that the Iranian people are also demonstrating and calling for the removal of a repressive regime that is 40 years old.

The American forces launched a series of raids on Sunday, against the bases of the Iraqi Hezbollah Brigades, which resulted in the death of 25 fighters.

The American strikes came two days after a missile attack on an Iraqi base where American forces are present, and that led for the first time to the death of an American contractor in Iraq.
