Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units To Retaliate Against Israeli Attacks: Top Commander

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

On October 1, Abu Ala al-Walai, Commander of the Kata’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada faction of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), said that the PMU is ready to retaliate against Israeli attacks.

Al-Walai said that Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi’s confirmation of Israel’s responsibility for a string of attacks on positions of the PMU makes retaliation legitimate.

On September 30, Prime Minister Abdul-Mahdi said in an interview with the al-Jazeera TV network that “investigations into the targeting of some Popular Mobilization Forces positions indicate that Israel carried it out.”

Mahdi said that “many indicators show that no one wants war in the region except for Israel.”

Second-in-Command of Kata’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada Ahmed al-Maksousi told al-Araby al-Jadeed media outlet that the PMU was “aware for more than a month that the report compiled by the commission of inquiry on the bombing of the PMU positions proved the Zionist regime’s involvement, especially since Americans told Abdel-Mahdi that Israel was behind these strikes.”

Al-Maksousi also called on the Iraqi government and parliament to “explore diplomatic channels and submit complaints to the Security Council, the United Nations and even international tribunals about the bombings. Different Iraqi factions are going to hold a meeting in the capital Baghdad within the next two days.”

It’s unlikely that the ‘diplomatic efforts’ may lead to any real progress in preventing Israeli attacks on the PMU if these attacks really take place. Therefore, the PMU will need adopt more direct measures to repel them.

    US and israel and saudies are responsible, not just israel. All three need to be euphemized.

    Check with the Houthis if you need some new gear or ammo. It’s like arms supply Christmas in Yemen. The Houthis are exhausted from clearing out Saudi ammo dumps and torching LAVs. Hey… you guys want a cool 20 mm rotary cannon mounted on an APC?

    I grew up in Mafia territory. It was the same thing. You did not criticize them, or else. All the major employers are now long gone from there, the mob still rules.

    It would be interesting to know how many people dominate the Israeli country. Like in the Ukraine, what is the percentage of violent Nazi’s who dominate the others. It’s also interesting to me the massive Public Relations effort that is skillfully deployed to change reality so this fiasco can carry on.

    It’s moved past interesting, it’s becoming increasingly terrifying.

    Just so some politician can stay out of jail. Why don’t they just pardon them and save all the drama?

  • Zionism = EVIL

    The filthy Zionists overplayed their hand and have now made eternal enemy of Iraq. Firstly, the Zionist scum failed to stop the trans-Beirut highway and now Iranian footprint is far bigger than most people can even imagine. Not only that Hezbollah is now a trans-regional military force. The number of units that are engaged in the security of the Tehran to Lebanon highway now include forces from Afghanistan,Pakistan, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Palestinians and global Shia diaspora, which will end up all fighting the Zionist scum in a long war of attrition which they will win regardless, due to demographics and geography. The Iranian chief of staff is right when he said that Zionist regime is in death throes.

    the israelis been sort of quiet on Syria lately and that is probably due to Putin telling netanyahu before the sraeli election that enough is enough next time we see you we’ll down you. capice! not much to do but pinpricking here and there well away from the syrian air-room an thus Iraq and the PMU’s are suitable subjects for pinpricks. however it might end in a disaster when the PMU’s take serious offense and start shooting back. the f35s might drop from the sky like stones and it’s about time some crucial force did something relevant vis a vis israel – like defeat them to rubbish and send them on the way.
