White House Warns Iran About Potential Attacks

The FINANCIAL -- The United States has warned Iran about any potential attacks by its proxies and allies against U.S. facilities in the Middle East.

The statement issued on September 11 by the White House came three days after the U.S. Consulate in the Iraqi city of Basra was hit by rocket fire. A day prior to that, three mortars landed inside Baghdad's Green Zone, where the U.S. Embassy is located.

No casualties or damages were reported in either case, but the mortar attack was the first such one in several years on the Green Zone.

"Iran did not act to stop these attacks by its proxies in Iraq, which it has supported with funding, training, and weapons," the White House statement said.
