Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Wed, Jan 8, 2020

Iraqi land and bases were attacked on Wednesday, 8/1/2020 with Iranian missile strikes targeting military camps that include Iraqi and non-Iraqi forces.
The Foreign Ministry rejects these attacks and considers them a violation of Iraqi sovereignty, it calls on all parties concerned to show restraint, work to reduce tension in the region, avoid making Iraq a battlefield to settle their scores and to work to resolve the crises that afflict the region. We also stress that Iraq is an independent country, and that its internal security is a priority of great concern, we will not allow it to be a battlefield, a passage to carry out attacks, or to use its ground to harm neighboring countries, and the Foreign Ministry will summon the Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to inform him of the above.
