The drone attack on the residence of Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazemi is incitement to mutiny, said Ali Shamkhani, secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council. IRNA agency reports.
Ali Shamkhani connects the incident with foreign analytical centers. They, the politician noted on Twitter, “brought nothing but insecurity, discord and instability … by creating and supporting terrorist groups and occupying this country for many years.”
Earlier it became known about the attack on the residence of Mustafa al-Kazemi, which is located in the “green zone” of the Iraqi capital. It was clarified that the attack was carried out using a mined unmanned aerial vehicle.
The media reported that Mustafa al-Kazemi was taken to hospital with minor injuries, but the Prime Minister denied this information.
According to Al Arabiya TV channel, part of the politician’s residence was destroyed as a result of the attack. In addition, according to him, ten of al-Kazemi’s guards were injured.
The United States offered Iraq assistance in investigating the assassination attempt on the prime minister. State Department spokesman Ned Price said Washington was in close contact with Iraqi security forces and called the incident an act of terrorism.
