Tehran: Targeting Baghdad airport aims to destabilize Iraq's security
The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman condemns the targeting of Baghdad International Airport by missiles and adds that Iran has always supported maintaining security in Iraq.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry condemned the attack on Baghdad Airport, calling it an "attempt to destabilize Iraq."
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh told reporters, "This kind of suspicious activity created a state of insecurity and turmoil in Iraq, and paved the way for those who want evil and sedition in Iraq. It also affected the services provided by the government to Iraqi citizens."
"Iran always supports establishing and maintaining security in Iraq, as well as developing and unifying the country, and supports the Iraqi government's efforts to establish stability."
It is noteworthy that an Iraqi security source reported on Friday that the US Victoria Military Base at Baghdad Airport was exposed to several missiles in the runway area, and an abandoned plane was damaged by the bombing. He mentioned that activating the C-RAM anti-missile system intercepted several missiles.
The Security Media Cell said in a statement, "outlaw terrorist gangs targeted the Baghdad International airport with six Katyusha rockets."
The official of the Hezbollah Brigades security office, Abu Ali Al-Askari, confirmed that "the policy of shuffling cards, the latest of which was targeting Baghdad airport, will not work."
He believed that the coordinating framework in Iraq condemned the targeting of Baghdad airport, and considered it a "terrorist act intended to stir up sedition."
On the other hand, the Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi denounced the attack, considering it "an attempt to damage Iraq's reputation and the Iraqi airlines and destabilize the security situation."
He warned that those who serve foreign agendas and carry out the attack would face retaliation from the security forces, and he urged all Iraqi and international parties to condemn the attack and support the security forces.
