Do Iran - US Tensions Have an Impact on Indonesia?
The head of Iran's elite forces, General Qassim Soleimani, was killed in an air strike carried out by the United States. The attack, which also killed the deputy commander of an Iran-backed Iraqi militia, occurred at Baghdad International Airport, when an airstrike targeted the general's car convoy.
The White House and Pentagon have confirmed that the United States military was responsible for Soleimani's death.
In his tweet, the official White House account wrote that Soleimani was actively planning attacks on United States diplomats in Iraq and the Middle East.
The United States Department of Defense, in its statement, accused Soleimani of approving the attack on the United States embassy in Baghdad on January 1.
Yesterday, a number of rocket attacks began hitting the green zone in the al-jadiriya district, Baghdad, Iraq, where the United States Embassy and the Balad base are located, after Iran declared revenge for the death of General Qassem Soleimani.
After the rocket attack, the United States government again sent troops from the Army's airborne division to Kuwait. The Army deployment, which was flown from Fort Bragg, North Carolina, was part of a deployment of 650 personnel who had been sent previously.
The recent exchange of attacks between Iran and the United States was initially triggered by an attack on a United States military base in Kirkuk, Iraq, which killed a contractor and injured four United States soldiers. The United States blamed the attack on militias backed by Iran. Iran Amerika Serikat Serangan roket Iran Amerika Serikat Donald Trump Jenderal Qassem Soleimani Sapa Indonesia Malam
