France has no plan to withdraw soldiers from Iraq - government source
Lebanon News

France is not planning to withdraw its 160 soldiers deployed in Iraq following Iranian missile strikes targeting US-led forces, a French government source told Reuters on Wednesday.

 

A French army spokesman previously said there had been no French military casualties in Iraq from the Iranian strikes.

 

Iran's action early on Wednesday was in retaliation for a US drone strike that killed a top Iranian commander in Baghdad, which has triggered fears of a new Middle East war.
