Iraqi Politician Condemns US Airstrikes, Calls for Troop Withdrawal to Preserve Sovereignty

In a strong rebuke of the recent US airstrikes against three sites used by anti-terror resistance forces in Iraq, Hadi al-Ameri, the secretary general of Iraq's Badr Organization, asserted that the only solution to halt such illegal and aggressive attacks is the prompt withdrawal of American occupation troops from the country. Al-Ameri urged the Iraqi government to establish a timetable for the withdrawal of US troops, emphasizing the critical need for Iraq's full sovereignty.

The condemnation follows US military airstrikes targeting facilities used by Kata'ib Hezbollah and affiliated groups in Hillah city, resulting in injuries and casualties. Al-Ameri cautioned that the presence of foreign forces in Iraq serves only to destabilize the nation and endanger the lives of its people.

Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin defended the precision strikes, citing them as a response to attacks against US personnel, including an incident by Kata'ib Hezbollah on Erbil Air Base. The Islamic Resistance in Iraq claimed responsibility for the strike, which wounded three US military personnel.

Iraq's al-Nujaba movement also condemned the airstrikes, denouncing them as a violation of Iraq's sovereignty. The movement accused the US of targeting security forces, federal police, Hashd al-Shaabi, and civilian infrastructure, highlighting the disregard for Iraq's laws and the will of its people.

The statement from al-Nujaba emphasized that the US military presence in Iraq contradicts its claimed advisory role, reinforcing the perception that it maintains a substantial military footprint. Despite claims of combating Daesh, the US has faced criticism for its continued military presence in Iraq and Syria, with calls for troop withdrawal to allow the nations to assert full control over their sovereignty.

The backdrop of escalating tensions includes retaliatory actions by Iraqi resistance groups, raising concerns about the stability and security of the region.
