After militant protesters stormed the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, President Donald Trump authorized the deployment of about 100 U.S. Marines to bolster security on the ground. Defense Secretary Mark Esper shared the public details via Twitter, adding, “We have taken appropriate force protection actions to ensure the safety of American citizens, military personnel and diplomats in country, and to ensure our right of self-defense. We are sending additional forces to support our personnel at the Embassy.”

“The US continues to support the Iraqi people & a free, sovereign, & prosperous Iraq,” Esper concluded.
