Iraq’s powerful militia has confirmed that it will respond to US bombing

Al Nujaba, which is considered a terrorist group by Washington, stated that it has “surprises that will provoke the enemy.”

The Iraqi militia Al Nujaba, one of the most prominent of the pro-Iranian group Islamic Resistance in Iraq, confirmed today that it will respond to the bombing of the United States against the positions of groups supported by Iran in Iraqi and Syrian territory in retaliation for the death of three of his soldiers in Jordan.

“Let the American occupation and its evil Administration know that the Islamic Resistance will respond in what it deems appropriate at the time and place it wants, and this will not be the end,” said the pro-Iranian armed movement in a statement broadcast through its channel from Telegram.

Al Nujaba, which is considered a terrorist group in Washington, stated that holds “surprises that will provoke the enemy” and whose goal is to force the departure of US troops from Iraq.

“We repeat so that the deaf can hear, that we will not give a ceasefire or retreat, nor will we be defeated,” the pro-Iranian movement said in the note, in which it described the US bombings that resulted in 16 deaths. on Iraqi soil as a violation “of the sovereignty and dignity of Iraq.”

Before the US bombing and in the face of the threat of retaliation from Washington, Al Nujaba warned on Friday that it would not stop its operations against US positions in the Middle East until the war in Gaza stops and the US troops withdraw from Iraq.

The group thus distanced itself from the announcement of the Secretary of Hezbollah, the flagship of the Islamic Resistance in Iraq, which after the death of three American soldiers in Jordan announced the cessation of its operations.

The amalgam of pro-Iran militias Islamic Resistance in Iraq has launched more than 160 attacks against Washington’s positions on Iraqi and Syrian soil since the start of the Gaza war on October 7, but the action that killed three Americans is the leading cause of death.

Al Nujaba, as well as Kataib Hezbollah, is also part of the Popular Multitude militia group, de facto integrated into the Iraqi Armed Forces and whose positions were the target of US attacks last Friday in Iraq.
