Iraqi Resistance Enforces Naval Blockade on Israel in Mediterranean Sea

Abu Ala al-Walaei, the Secretary-General of the Sayyid al-Shuhada Brigades, has called on the Islamic Resistance in Iraq (IRI) to commence the second phase of pro-Palestine operations which includes the endorsement of a naval blockade on the Israeli Regime in the Mediterranean Sea. 

“At a time when the criminal US occupation is again blatantly targeting our security forces … we urge the Mujahideen of the Islamic Res.istance in Iraq to begin the second phase of their operations, which includes enforcing a blockade on Zionist maritime navigation in the Mediterranean Sea and putting the entity’s ports out of service,” Walaei said.

The leader of the Sayyid al-Shuha.da Brigades cited that the operations will continue  “the unjust siege on Gaza is lifted and the horrific Zionist massacres against its people are stopped.”

Earlier today, US warplanes sent a number of airstrikes in locations of the PMU-affiliated Kataib Hezbollah in Al-Qaim on the Iraqi-Syrian border and in Jurf al-Nasr south of Baghdad.

At least one death was reported in the attack.

The spokesman for Kataib Hezbollah, Jaafar al-Husseini, responded to the attack saying, “The resistance will continue to destroy enemy strongholds in support of our people in Gaza until the brutal US-backed killing machine stops and the entire siege is lifted.”

Iraq’s National Security Advisor Qas.sim Al-A.raji condemned the US for “violating Iraqi sovereignty” again, by targeting the PMU.

“Attacking the headquarters of the [PMU] in Al-Qaim and Jurf al-Nasr is an assault and a flagrant violation of Iraqi sovereignty and does not help [quell tensions],” the official said, stressing that, “Instead of bombing and targeting the headquarters of an Iraqi national institution, the US side should move to stop the aggression against Gaza.”
