Iraqi Foreign Minister summoned the American and British ambassadors after the strike.
A spokesman for the Iraqi Foreign Ministry said that the Iraqi Foreign Minister summoned the ambassadors of the United States and Britain in Baghdad, due to the air strikes launched by the United States on Iraqi military sites Thursday evening.
The spokesman said in a statement: “The foreign minister is holding an emergency meeting in which the ministry’s agents and advisers and the official spokesperson will attend to discuss the measures regarding the recent American aggression.
On Friday, the Iraqi Army Operations Command announced that 7 people were killed, including 4 soldiers, as a result of the strikes launched by the American planes, in response to the killing of Western soldiers in the bombing of a base hosting international coalition forces north of Baghdad.
And the Operations Command said in a statement: “At exactly one o’clock in the morning on Friday, Iraq was subjected to a blatant attack by American combat aircraft targeting the Iraqi army units” in separate areas of Iraq.
The Pentagon said earlier that the air strikes targeted gatherings of Iraqi Hezbollah guerrillas, which it accuses of being behind an attack on the Taji base north of Baghdad, that killed two Americans and a British.
