Agence France-Press reports:
The Pentagon warned Thursday that the Iran-backed Kataeb Hezbollah group that stormed the US embassy in Baghdad would would carry out more attacks on US facilities – and would regret it.
“The provocative behavior has been out there for months… So do I think they may do something? Yes. And they will likely regret it,” Esper told reporters.
“We are prepared to exercise self-defense, and we are prepared to deter further bad behavior from these groups, all of which are sponsored, directed and resourced by Iran.”
