Iranian-backed militias are attacking the US Embassy in Iraq and have burned the outer fence of the embassy storming the gates.

The Iranian militia’s attack comes after the US retaliated on Iran’s attack that killed one American and wounded four. US airstrikes killed fighters from the Kataib Hezbollah, an Iranian-backed Shiite militia group in Iraq and Syria after the American contractor was killed.

He also warned Iraq that they must protect the US Embassy there.
