The German government condemned Iran's missile attack on Iraqi bases that house US troops, urging the involved parties to «exercise restraint,» when speaking at a federal press conference (BPK) in Berlin on Wednesday. German government's spokesperson Steffen Seibert said, «We strongly condemn the missile attacks on the US bases in Iraq. We stand in close solidarity with the alliance.» «Now it is important that all involved parties exercise restraint and turn away from the logic of escalation towards the logic of dialogue,» added Seibert. On Tuesday night, Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps [IRGC] launched missiles to target US military bases in Iraq in retaliation for the killing of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani last week, hitting two airbases in Erbil and al-Asad.
