Protesters stormed the US embassy in Baghdad on Tuesday during demonstrations against US airstrikes on an Iran-backed group in Iraq and Syria over the weekend.
Protesters gathered around the embassy waving flags and banners denouncing the US airstrikes in Iraq. Footage also shows protesters smashing windows of the compound, and lighting fires.
US Secretary Defence Mark Esper said on Monday that... Еще F-15 Strike Eagles fighter jets hit five targets linked to Kataib Hezbollah, three in western Iraq and two in eastern Syria.
The strikes came after Washington accused Kataib Hezbollah of a rocket attack that killed a US civilian contractor and injured four US servicemen and two members of the Iraqi security forces near Kirkuk.
