Iraq: Will the military pact with the US be canceled?

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — A member of the Iraqi Parliament Security and Defense Committee, Mahdi al-Amerli, warned that if Hashd al-Shaabi positions are further attacked, parliament will force the government to cancel its agreement with the so-called anti-Daesh coalition led by the United States.

“If once again the Hashd al-Shaabi positions are targeted, the parliament will force the government to cancel its agreement with the US coalition,” warned Mahdi al-Amerli.

“According to the results of an investigation, the US coalition has authorized Israeli fighter planes to bomb the Hashd al-Shaabi positions,” the Al-Maalouma news website quoted the Iraqi MP as saying.

“Once the results of the investigation into the bombing of the Balad base in Salaheddine province have been obtained, Parliament will take the necessary measures,” Mahdi al-Amerli said.

Another member of the Iraqi Parliament’s Security and Defense Committee, Karim al-Mohamedawai, said Israeli drones had bombed the Balad base.

“With the complicity of Israel, the United States is implementing a plan to attack the Hashd al-Shaabi positions in most Iraqi provinces,” Karim al-Mohamedawai said Wednesday.

“The bombing of the Balad Air Base in Salaheddine province is a reminder of the explosion of the al-Qasr base south of Baghdad after Israeli air strikes,” he said.

The Iraqi leader added that the US coalition has allowed the Israeli regime to bomb the Hashd al-Shaabi positions.

Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, vice-president of Hashd al-Shaabi, for his part held the US administration responsible for recent incidents on Iraqi military bases.

The Sadequain faction in the Iraqi parliament has denounced the US involvement in attacks on the positions of Popular Mobilization Units (Hashd al-Shaabi).

“Serenity in Iraq will only be possible after the closure of the US embassy in Baghdad,” said Hassan Salam, a member of the Sadequain faction.

“The US embassy is indeed two embassies. It is also the embassy of Israel, “said Hassan Salam quoted by the information website Baghdad al-Youm.

Calling on the international community not to remain silent about these crimes, he added that Washington and Tel Aviv control Iraq’s airspace.

“We must put an end to the presence of the American coalition supposedly anti-Daesh in Iraq, because it is at the origin of the violation of the Iraqi airspace. The Americans let in four Israeli drones to attack the Iraqi bases. The United States is responsible for everything that happens in Iraq,” said Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes.
