French Defense Minister Florence Barley announced on Wednesday that France strongly condemns the attack on the American embassy in Baghdad by thousands of pro-Iranian demonstrators on Tuesday, expressing the country’s full solidarity with the United States, the French media reported.

“France strongly condemns the attacks against the international coalition sites in Iraq and the attempts to storm the American embassy in Baghdad”, said the minister from the Strait of Hormuz, where she spent New Year’s Eve alongside the crew of the French Courbet frigate.

The Popular Mobilization militia commanders ordered their supporters, on Wednesday, to withdraw from the US embassy in the fortified Green Zone in Baghdad, a day after the sit-in, but one of the pro-Iranian factions refused.

The crowd called in a statement directed to its supporters to withdraw in respect of the decision of the Iraqi government, which ordered this and to preserve the prestige of the state.

The statement added: “Your message has arrived”, but a senior official in the Hezbollah Brigades, the pro-Iranian faction confirmed AFP that he refused to withdraw and continue to sit in front of the embassy.

On Tuesday, demonstrators protested against killing of 25 members after the US air strikes targeted bases of Iraqi Hezbollah Brigades, in response to the killing of a US soldier.
