Iraq Announces Committee to Permanently Dissolve US-led Coalition Presence

Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani declared the formation of a committee to initiate preparations for the permanent dissolution of the US-led coalition's mission in Iraq. The announcement followed a drone strike on the headquarters of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), resulting in three casualties, including a Nujaba resistance movement commander.

The bilateral committee, consisting of representatives from Baghdad and the coalition, will be tasked with setting a timeline for ending the international coalition forces' presence in Iraq. Prime Minister Sudani emphasized the government's unwavering commitment to terminate the coalition's existence, citing the expiration of justifications for its continued presence.

The deadly US drone strike prompted strong reactions from Iraqi resistance groups, urging Baghdad to terminate the coalition's presence. Additionally, a group of Iraqi lawmakers called for the expulsion of the US ambassador. Prime Minister Sudani condemned the attack, labeling it a dangerous escalation and a violation of Iraq's sovereignty.

Despite Washington's claim of deploying troops to combat Daesh, anti-US sentiments have surged in the region. Over 118 attacks against American troops have been reported since mid-October, with heightened discontent over US support for Israel's actions in Gaza. The Iraqi resistance forces, responding to these sentiments, have targeted major US-occupied military bases in Syria and Iraq, warning against supporting Israeli war crimes.

As tensions escalate, Iraq's move to dissolve the coalition's mission reflects the growing discontent with foreign military presence and aligns with regional opposition to US policies, particularly regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
