Iran claims missile barrage near U.S. consulate in Iraq

Iran claimed responsibility Sunday for a missile barrage that struck near a sprawling U.S.

Saying it was retaliation for an Israeli strike in Syria that killed two members of its Revolutionary Guard earlier this week.

No injuries were reported in Sunday’s attack on the city of Irbil, which marked a significant escalation between the U.S. and Iran.

Hostility between the longtime foes has often played out in Iraq, whose government is allied with both countries.

The attack drew harsh condemnation from the Iraqi government, which called it a “violation of international law and norms”

The United States said the missile strike emanated from Iran and strongly condemned it.
