Shafaq News / The head of the Iraqi Supreme Judicial Council and the US ambassador to Baghdad discussed, on Wednesday, accountability for the “threats” to embassies and diplomatic missions in Iraq.
A statement by the judiciary media received by Shafaq News stated that, “The President of the Supreme Judicial Council, Judge Faik Zidan, received in his office today, Wednesday, the Ambassador of the United States of America in Baghdad, Matthew Toller, and discussed with him the judiciary’s procedures in holding accountable those who attack and threaten embassies and diplomatic missions in Iraq.”
The two sides also discussed “the impact of these threats on Iraq’s relations with the countries of the world.”
Today, Wednesday, an official security source and eyewitnesses reported that a security campaign was launched in the Jadriya area in Baghdad to search for those accused of launching the missile strikes, which usually target the heavily fortified Green Zone, the headquarters of the international coalition and US forces.
The source and witnesses told Shafaq News that the CTS began, since dawn today, a search campaign in the Al-Jadriya area in Baghdad, in search of suspects involved in launching rockets.
Attacks on US forces and interests, as well as the months-long supplies of the international coalition led by Washington, are frequent by unidentified gunmen suspected of being Iraqi fighters loyal to Iran.
