On Monday, Ahmed Al-Moussawi, a member of the Parliamentary Security and Defense Committee, explained the mechanisms and methods for removing American forces from Iraq and clearing the military bases they occupy of any foreign presence, noting that there are diplomatic methods as well as others that rely on resistance operations to do so.
Al-Moussawi was quoted as saying: “The government, in accordance with what is available to it under the law, must press for negotiations with Washington regarding the extent of Iraq’s need for foreign advisors for consultation only, but the presence of military forces is completely unacceptable.”
He went on to say, “The technical committee was formed to negotiate with the American side, and if it agrees to remove all military forces and keep only advisors, then there will be an agreement that guarantees that the resistance factions will not move against them.”
He went on to say, “If the aforementioned committee does not reach an agreement with Washington, the government must invest in the pressure exerted by the Islamic resistance to remove American forces from Iraq, as was previously invested in during the era of former Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.”
The Iraqi Islamic Resistance claimed responsibility for targeting American bases in Iraqi Kurdistan’s Ain al-Assad and Harir, as well as Syria’s Al-Tanf and Al-Malikiyah, while American forces vowed more operations, emphasizing that they would not stand by and watch the genocide against Palestinians in Gaza.
