The Islamic Resistance in Iraq has called on the Iraqi people to join their troops and assist in removing US troops from their territories who have been invading their nation for more than 20 years.
This comes in the wake of the US military taking responsibility for kil.ling three people in a drone strike in Baghdad. The attack even ki.lled senior Iraqi Resistance commander Abu Baqer al-Saadi.
“The opportunity of the past days has certainly revealed to the Iraqi people, friends, and responsible entities that the occupying enemy does not leave its villainy and treachery, nor does it understand any language other than the language of arms,” the statement said.
“This was clearly demonstrated in its recent targeting of the fighters of the Popular Mobilization Forces … and its crimes were further increased by the assassination of the great leader Abu Baqir al-Saadi in Baghdad, thereby violating all rules of engagement,” it said.
“We call on our brothers…to join the ranks of the resistance…(and) participate actively in expelling the occupation at this historic stage for Iraq and the region,” the Iraqi Resistance group added.
The US has deployed more than 2,500 troops in Iraq with claims of advising and assisting local forces to “prevent the resurgence of ISIS.” Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have been ki-lled since the US invasion of Iraq in 2003.
