"Due to heightened tensions in Iraq and the region, the U.S. Embassy urges American citizens to heed the January 2020 Travel Advisory and depart Iraq immediately," the Embassy said in a security alert on January 3, 2020.

It is noted U.S. citizens should depart via airline while possible, and failing that, to other countries via land.

"Due to Iranian-backed militia attacks at the U.S. Embassy compound, all public consular operations are suspended until further notice. U.S. citizens should not approach the Embassy," reads the report.
