This video was released at a time when tensions between the U.S. and Iran are at a decade-long high.
Last Monday, the U.S. military deployed its Patriot air defense missile system to two bases, Harir and ‘Ayn Al-Assad, in Iraq.
Shortly after the deployment, U.S. President Donald Trump issued a warning to Iran and its allied paramilitaries, saying that Washington has heard about a plan to attack its forces in Iraq.
