Calls for expulsion of troops
PMF chief condemns US attacks
BAGHDAD — Falih Al-Fayyadh, leader of the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), declared on Sunday that a recent attack by the U.S. was a direct assault on the PMF, asserting that this action will not be ignored and stressing the importance of removing foreign forces from Iraqi territory.
While speaking at a news conference during the funeral for the victims, Al-Fayyadh said, “The American aggression directly targeted the Popular Mobilization Forces, and we will not overlook this incident, as it constitutes a flagrant attack.”
Al-Fayyadh further stated, “The blood of the PMF represents Iraq’s dignity and stature. We will not permit the sacrifice of our sons to be diminished to a mere political bargaining chip,” highlighting the sacredness and significance of the PMF within Iraq.
By emphasizing the PMF’s integral role as a source of “pride” for both the Iraqi armed forces and the people, Al-Fayyadh renewed the call for the removal of foreign troops, indicating a firm position against the presence of international forces in the nation.
