London: The United Kingdom on Wednesday condemned Iran’s missile attack and asked Tehran never repeat such “reckless and dangerous” attacks.
“We condemn this attack on Iraqi military bases hosting Coalition including British forces. We are concerned by reports of casualties and use of ballistic missiles. We urge Iran not to repeat these reckless and dangerous attacks, and instead to pursue urgent de-escalation,” Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said in a statement.
“A war in the Middle East would only benefit Daesh (IS) and other terrorist groups,” Raab added while referring to Islamic State’s Arabic name.
Early on Wednesday, Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against US military and coalition forces in Iraq, targeting at least two bases at Al-Asad and Abril.
