United Kingdom put its Citizens on state of alert in Iraq; London, May 2019

Britain has raised the threat level for UK forces and diplomats in Iraq because of what sources say is a heightened security risk from Iran, Sky News can reveal. The targets would most likely be soft such as oil infrastructure or other civilian targets, the source said. The aim would be to cause disruption but not to do something that could be directly linked back to the regime and therefore trigger a hard US response (skynews).
