Trump: Fighting the US Will Be 'Official End of Iran'
Monday, 20 May 2019 10:16 WIB | GLOBAL |Amerika

President Donald Trump has given a strong warning to Iran, threatening its destruction if it attacks the United States or U.S. interests.

"If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran," Trump tweeted Sunday. "Never threaten the United States again!"

Just three days earlier, Trump appeared to be backing away from his apparently hawkish stance against Iran, saying he would be willing to talk with Tehran.

When asked by a reporter at the White House if the U.S. was going to war with Iran, Trump replied, "I hope not."

But there has been no apparent let up in the tensions between the United States, its regional allies and Iran.

The State Department says a "low-grade rocket" fell inside the green zone in Baghdad, close to the U.S. embassy, Sunday. No injuries or damage is reported.

U.S. Central Command spokesman Capt. Bill Urban said the Pentagon was aware of an explosion outside the embassy, adding, "There were no U.S. or coalition casualties, and Iraqi Security Forces are investigating the incident."

A spokesman says the U.S. will not tolerate such attacks and that it will hold Iran responsible "if any such attacks are conducted by its proxy militia forces."
