US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says the country is “outraged” by a deadly rocket attack on Monday that occurred near the Irbil International Airport in the Iraqi Kurdistan region. EuroNews reports that a civilian contractor was killed and several other people injured, including an American service member and several American contractors. Iraqi President Barham Salih said in a statement that the attack marked a “dangerous escalation” and that Iraq had “no choice but to firmly strengthen [their] efforts to root out the forces of terror and the attempts to plunge the country into chaos”.
