Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said: We condemn this attack on Iraqi military bases hosting Coalition – including British – forces. We are concerned by reports of casualties and use of ballistic missiles. We urge Iran not to repeat these reckless and dangerous attacks, and instead to pursue urgent de-escalation. A war in the Middle East would only benefit Daesh and other terrorist groups.
