Iran embassy in Iraq condemned US attack on al-Hashd al-Shaabi

The embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Baghdad described the continuing US involvement in Iraq's internal affairs, the region, and efforts to create divisions between countries as the main source of regional instability.

Iran Press/Middle East: The embassy's statement says US attacks on al-Hashd al-Shaabi base is a flagrant violation of Iraqi national sovereignty and within the framework of US government intervention in the internal affairs of the region for the interest of the Zionist regime.

Referring to al-Hashd al-Shaabi's key role in the defeat of the ISIS terrorist group in Iraq, the statement said, "The world knows that the US troops in the region pursue their hegemonic and arrogant goals."

The statement by the Iranian Embassy in Iraq emphasized US intervention in Iraq comes at a time when senior US  officials with hypocrisy are demanding other countries not to interfere in Iraqi internal affairs.

Last night the US aircraft bombed an al-Hashd al-Shaabi base, killing several of its forces.

In this regard, the Iraqi religious authorities issued a statement strongly condemning the US action. 205/219
