Nauert: Iran is rolling a “Bad Actor” in Iraq



The United States Department of state said the Iranian rocket attack on the Kurdistan Region was an effort to destabilize Iraq and the region, describing Tehran as a “bad actor.”

Iranian military units launched a barrage of missiles that hit an Iranian Kurdish refugee camp, which also contains the headquarters of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan (PDKI) and Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran (KDP-I), in Koya on Saturday.

The attack killed 15 people and wounded 50 others, according to the Koya health directorate.

“And that recent attack … is clearly another effort to destabilize that country, that government, and destabilize the region,” US State Department’s Spokesperson Heather Nauert said in a press conference on Tuesday.
