UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Britain has tightened security and raised the level of preparedness in military bases in the Middle East after the United States killed the commander of Iran’s Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani, Sky News said on Friday, in an unsourced report.
Britain has about 400 military personnel in Iraq, helping with training work in the country. Most of them are at Taji base, north of Baghdad.
“The safety and security of our soldiers is of the utmost importance and we are putting measures to protect our forces under constant review,” a British Ministry of Defense spokesman said in response to a question about the report. We do not comment on specific measures to protect forces.”
