by MCR Correspondent

Following the attack at Baghdad airport, the United States has ordered its citizens to immediately move out of Iraq

The order was issued after American Forces killed a top Iranian commander, Qassem Soleimani, in Baghdad, on Friday.

The US Department of State told Americans to leave while all consular operations in Iraq were suspended.

In a post on Twitter, the U.S said, “Due to heightened tensions in Iraq and the region, we urge US citizens to depart Iraq immediately.”

“Due to Iranian-backed militia attacks at the US Embassy compound, all consular operations are suspended. US citizens should not approach the Embassy,” it added.
