US Orders Non-Essential Staff To Leave Embassy, Consulate in Iraq Amid Tensions With Iran

(JNS) The U.S. State Department ordered non-essential personnel at its embassy and at a consulate in Iraq to leave the country amid increasing tensions with Iran.

Visa services will be temporarily suspended at the Baghdad and Erbil posts.

Additionally, the State Department issued a warning this week for U.S. citizens not to travel to Iraq “due to terrorism, kidnapping and armed conflict.”

A spokesperson for the U.S. military’s Central Command, U.S. Navy Capt. Bill Urban, said in a statement that there were “possibly imminent threats to U.S. forces in Iraq.”
