US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that Iran will be held accountable for lives lost in attacks on any US facilities.

“Iran will be held fully responsible for lives lost, or damage incurred, at any of our facilities. They will pay a very BIG PRICE! This is not a Warning, it is a Threat,” Trump wrote on Twitter hours after protesters angry about US air strikes on Iraq hurled stones and torched a security post at the US Embassy in Baghdad.

“The US Embassy in Iraq is, & has been for hours, SAFE! Many of our great Warfighters, together with the most lethal military equipment in the world, was immediately rushed to the site,” Trump said.

He also thanked Iraqi authorities: “Thank you to the President & Prime Minister of Iraq for their rapid response upon request.”
