Iran Informed Before Attack on US Pursuits: Iraqi PM

BAGHDAD: Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi received a verbal message from Iran in which it told him its response to the US killing of its top general was either imminent or underway, his spokesman said in a statement.

Tehran told Abdul Mahdi it would only target locations where US forces were present but did not specify the locations, his spokesman said.

Abdul Mahdi simultaneously received a call from the United States while missiles were falling on the American wing of the Ain Al Assad airbase in Anbar province and the Harir airbase in Erbil, the spokesman said.

There have been no reports of casualties from either the Iraqi military or the US-led coalition.
