After the American attacks in Iraqi territory tonight against targets of the Iraqi Hezbollah brigades, the Iraqi government decided to file an official complaint against the United States in the UN Security Council on the matter. Iraq also stated that this is a violation of Iraqi sovereignty and the security cooperation agreements between the US and Iraq.
I will point out that the US has had a continuous military presence since the overthrow of Saddam Hussein’s (Sunni) regime in Iraq in the early 2000s, alongside the Shia regime that arose following Hussein’s overthrow.
I will also add that this step by the Iraqi government is “more serious” than the steps it has taken so far after attacks on other militia targets in Iraqi territory in recent weeks.
The Shia militias in Iraq state on a regular basis that they are interested in eliminating any American presence from Iraqi territory.
