DUBAI, United Arab Emirates.-Donald Trump, warned Iran not to threaten the United States again or face its «official final», shortly after a rocket fell near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad during the night. Trump tweeteded his warning after apparently lowering the tone with Iran after days of rising tensions, triggered by an unexpected deployment of bombers and an aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf due to unspecified threats. Since then, authorities in the United Arab Emirates have claimed that four oil tankers were damaged in sabotage. Yemeni rebels allied with Iran attacked with drones a pipeline in Saudi Arabia. American diplomats reported a warning that commercial airplanes could be mistaken for Iran and attacked, something that rejected Tehran. All these tensions are the culmination of Trump’s decision a year ago to take the United States out of the Iran’s nuclear agreement with several international powers. And while both Washington and Tehran claim that they do not want a war, many fear that a miscalculation at this time of instability can uncontrol the situation.
Trump wrote his tweet hours after a Katyusha rocket fell into the fortified Green Zone of Baghdad, near the statue to the unknown soldier and less than a mile from the American Embassy. The projectile didn’t leave any casualties. The rocket was believed to have been launched from east Baghdad, according to the Associated Press, Brigadier-General Yahya Rasulullah, Iraqi military spokesman. In the area there are Shi’a militias backed by Iran.
If Iran wants to fight, it will be the official end of Iran, «tweeted Trump. ‘ ‘ íNo to threaten America again! ‘
Later on Monday, the Saudi Arabian army intercepted two missiles launched by Huthi rebels from neighbouring Yemen, according to the satellite channel AL-Arabiya citing witnesses. The missiles were intercepted on the city of Taif and the port of Jeddah, in the Red Sea, added the television station. The government did not comment on the missile fire, which was also reported by other Saudi media. Hundreds of rockets, mortars and ballistic missiles have been launched against the kingdom since a Saudi leadership coalition declared war on the Huthi in March 2015 to support the Yemeni government with international recognition.
