Iran-backed militia leader threatens embassy attacks on Saudi Arabia, UAE

As Iraqi militants and protesters surrounded and stormed the US Embassy in Baghdad on Tuesday, a leader of the Iranian-backed Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) umbrella militia group threatened to carry out similar attacks on the embassies of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

“When the Popular Mobilization Forces are capable of besieging the embassy of evil in Baghdad on this day, then they will soon besiege all the US military bases in Iraq – they will even besiege the embassies of countries like Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, and others,” tweeted Abo Alaa al-Walae, Secretary-General of the Iraqi Kataib Sayyid al-Shuhada, a branch of the PMF.
