Iraqi Resistance Group: Military Option to Remain on Table until US Forces Leave Country

The leader of a prominent Iraqi resistance group says the military option against the occupying US forces stationed in Iraq will remain on the table as long as they stay in the Arab country.

Qais Khazali, secretary-general of the Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq movement, made the remarks on Monday, said Iraq’s resistance groups had asserted repeatedly that, in line with the law ratified by the Iraqi parliament, the American forces had to leave the country, the al-Sumaria television reported.

The legislative body overwhelmingly passed the law early last year after a US drone strike assassinated senior Iranian and Iraqi counter-terrorism commanders, Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, near the Baghdad International Airport.

The law, which has mandated a full withdrawal of all US-led troops, cleared the parliament as the assassinations had given rise to an unprecedented level of anti-American sentiment throughout the country and the region.
