Iraqis in Basra condemn attack on Iran consulate

September 16, 2018

TEHRAN – Iraqis from different walks of life on Saturday staged a march in the southern city of Basra to condemn a recent attack on Iran’s consulate in the city, Press TV reported.

Trampling on U.S. and Israeli flags, the Iraqi demonstrators chanted slogans in support of Iran and praised the country’s help to the Iraqi military and volunteer forces in the fight against terrorism.

The demonstrators accused Washington of increasingly interfering in the domestic affairs of Iraq and trying to stoke unrest in the Arab country.

The march came a few days after a group of people ransacked Iran’s consulate in Basra and set the diplomatic post on fire.
