Senior US administration officials will brief the Senate and House of Representatives on Tuesday on developments on Iran after members ask for more information on the tension between the two countries, congressional aides said, Reuters reported

The aides said the speakers were Foreign Secretary Mike Pompeo, Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford and an unnamed intelligence representative.

A congressional aide said last week that a Senate hearing was set for Tuesday, but the final details of the House meeting were yet to be finalized.

US President Donald Trump threatened Iran in a tweet on Sunday, raising concern about a possible war between the United States and Iran as tensions between the two countries escalated.

Fears were also raised after a rocket fired at the heavily fortified Green Zone in Baghdad on Sunday evening, where the houses , government buildings and foreign embassies are located, and falling near the US embassy without causing casualties.
