Iraqi Shia groups unite for expulsion of United States forces

The Iraqi parliament last week voted to rescind the invitation to foreign troops after a United States strike at the Baghdad airport killed a top general from Iran, which also has wide influence in the country.

Representatives of Iraqi Shia groups have chose to unite to expel US forces from Iraq, a spokesman for one of them said Monday. "These continued violations of Iraq's sovereignty by groups not loyal to the Iraqi government must end". The incident was decried by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo hours later.

The Pentagon's top watchdog painted a gloomy picture in November about the five-year-old fight against ISIL, warning the US withdrawal from Syria and subsequent Turkish offensive had let the organization regroup and strengthened its ability to plan attacks against the West.

Four members of the Iraqi Air Force were reportedly injured in the attack, which was attributed to Iran-backed Shiite militia.

Last week, Iran launched a slew of ballistic missiles on American forces at the Ayn Al-Asad Air Base and a facility in Erbil in Iraq in retaliation for a U.S. drone strike that killed a top Iranian general on 3 January. No formal claim of responsibility for the attack had been made as of Monday morning.

The attack was ordered by US President Donald Trump who described it as a preemptive and defensive strike aimed at destroying "the terrorist number one anywhere in the world".

Speaking to "Meet the Press", O'Brien echoed Esper's remarks and said the Pentagon received significant intelligence reports that Tehran was aiming to attack American facilities in the Middle East. "So I think this has been a Washington thing-when we tell the American people there was exquisite intelligence and there was going to be an attack on Americans, we had to stop that".
