After the embassy being targeted... a large American military convoy leaves Iraq

Shafaq News / An Iraqi security source revealed on Sunday, that an American military convoy of more than 50 trucks left Iraq to Syria, according to Sky News.

The departure of US forces in Iraq comes amid increasing attacks against American interests in the country since late last year.

On Sunday morning, several missiles landed near the US embassy in Baghdad, and sirens sounded throughout the US embassy compound in the fortified Green Zone, according to an American military source and diplomat residing in a nearby area.

The American embassy in Baghdad and bases comprising American forces in Iraq were subjected to 19 missile attacks since the end of last October.

No one claimed responsibility for the missile attack near the US embassy on Sunday, knowing that Washington accuses armed factions close to Iran of being behind the strikes targeting its soldiers and headquarters.

On Thursday, a Katyusha missile landed at a military base where US soldiers are stationed in Kirkuk, northern Iraq, without causing casualties.

It is the first attack on al-Qaeda since it was targeted by 30 rockets on December 27, killing an American civilian contractor and escalating between Washington and Tehran on Iraqi soil.

Washington accused the Iraqi Hezbollah Brigades, which is close to Iran, of carrying out the attack, and its forces carried out raids that killed 25 fighters of the faction that pushed its supporters to attack the American embassy in an unprecedented move.

On January 3, American forces carried out an air strike near Baghdad International Airport, which killed the commander of the Quds Force in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Qassem Soleimani, and the deputy head of the Popular Mobilization Forces, which includes armed Iraqi factions, including the Hezbollah Brigades, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandi
