Morgan Ortagus, Department Spokesperson:

This occurred within hours of an attack by Iran-backed militias on the Kurdistan Democratic Party’s branch office in Baghdad.  The Government of Iraq needs to immediately exert control over the Iran-backed militias who are lawlessly attacking religious and ethnic minorities, peaceful protesters and activists, political party headquarters, and diplomatic missions.  The perpetrators of this violence must be brought to justice.  The actions of these groups are preventing the international community from helping Iraq and are leading Iraq towards sectarian violence and instability.  We urge all parties to act responsibly and work together to help Iraq overcome its economic challenges, security challenges, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
