The U.S. ambassador to the UN told the Security Council that “Iran continues to support local militias, in violation of Iraq’s sovereignty and Resolution 2522”. She further argued that “these militias are responsible for targeting and murdering peaceful Iraqi protestors, civil society activists and members of the media. Iranian-backed militias continue to target U.S. and other diplomatic facilities, placing American diplomats and Iraqi civilians in harm and jeopardising the ability of the U.S. to fully assist the Iraqi government and people”.
