The United States is urging all American citizens in Iraq to leave immediately for fear of reprisals from the US strike that killed top Iranian and Iraqi commanders.
The US embassy in Baghdad said in a statement that US citizens should depart via airline while possible, and failing that, to other countries via land.
The State Department also said the embassy in Baghdad, which was attacked by Iran-backed militia earlier this week, is closed and all consular services have been suspended.
And American citizens were specifically warned to avoid the U.S. embassy in Baghdad.
“Due to heightened tensions in Iraq and the region, the U.S. Embassy urges American citizens to heed the January 2020 Travel Advisory and depart Iraq immediately,” the State Department said in a statement released Friday.
“Due to Iranian-backed militia attacks at the U.S. Embassy compound, all public consular operations are suspended until further notice. U.S. citizens should not approach the Embassy.”
The U.S. State Department is citing the danger in the aftermath of the U.S. airstrike which killed Qasem Soleimani, one of Iran’s most senior military commanders.
Soleimani had approved the attacks on the U.S.’s Baghdad embassy in the days before his death, the U.S. Department of Defense said in a statement.
Across the Middle East, security has been ramped up at U.S. military bases in the expectation of retaliatory attacks.
The Biblical Prophecies (Matthew 24) foretell that in the Last Days nation will rise against nation and there will be wars and rumors of wars.
These events and conditions happening now are signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
Preparing those Biblically born again into the Kingdom of God to be ready to escape all the things that will come to pass, in the wrath of the tribulation of Revelation prophecy, that comes upon the world of disobedience. As the born again Church is not appointed unto wrath (1 Thessalonians 1:10) but instead to salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ.
