news, US retaliation attacks in Iraq and Syria, tension in the Middle East and more

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq (IRI), an umbrella group of Iranian-backed militias in the country, has vowed to expel US troops from the country and resume attacks on US targets. In a statement issued on Friday, the IRI referred to the United States as the occupying enemy and declared intentions to respond with “strikes and widespread attacks” following recent American attacks in Iraq, including the death of a top commander of Kataib Hezbollah.

The statement, which also called on others to join the resistance, comes as the Kataib Hezbollah militia, one of the IRI’s most powerful armed factions, swore revenge for the death of its commander Al-Saedi in a message on Telegram, stating that “It is the stage of revenge, and liberation and hell are coming.”

Last month, Kataib Hezbollah had announced a suspension of its military operations against US forces in the region, but the United States carried out deadly retaliation attacks in Iraq and Syria last week following the deaths of American soldiers.

Kataib Hezbollah is part of the IRI as well as the Hashd al Shaabi or Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), a predominantly Shia paramilitary force backed by Iran and based in Iraq. The PMU, unlike other Iranian-backed groups in the region, is linked to the Iraqi government and officially dependent on Iraqi military forces.

The latest threats signal an escalation in tensions between Iranian-backed groups and the United States, raising concerns about the potential for further violence and instability in the region.
