On Wednesday, US President Donald Trump warned that Iran and its proxies may be planning a sneak attack on American troops or assets in Iraq and vowed that they would pay a heavy price if they did so.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that Iran has no proxies but it has friends.

​Earlier, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said Tehran considers the US military’s “warmongering” in Iraq to be dangerous and could potentially create “catastrophic conditions” that will destabilize the region.

In turn, US President Donald Trump said that Iran and its proxies may be planning a sneak attack on American troops or assets in Iraq.

The US-led international coalition is currently relocating its troops in Iraq to consolidate them at better-protected bases. The coalition officially transferred K1 Air Base in the northern Iraqi province of Kirkuk to the Iraqi Armed Forces on Sunday.

According to the Hague Convention, using foreign militias as proxies to attack other countries is a casus belli from the proxies’ backer, therefore, even if Iran doesn’t directly attacks others, as it uses proxies on a wide scale, all their attacks are de facto declarations of war… Even if it still hasn’t backfired except with Saddam (Khomeini ordered terrorist attacks into Iraq, Saddam strictly applied international law and answered with an all-out conflict), Iran has not openly declared war but absolutely started many undeclared wars
