New Iraqi Group Shares Footage Of Attack On US Convoy, Takes Credit For Attack On Ain Assad Base

The official banner of the Khyber Brigade

On March 17, an new Iraqi armed group calling itself the Khyber Brigade claimed responsibility for the recent rocket attack on Ain Assad Air Base in western Iraq.

A barrage of rockets fired from an improvised launcher struck the base on March 3. An American contractor died during the attack, allegedly from a “heart attack.” Iranian-made Arash-4 rockets were allegedly used in the attack.

The Khyber Brigade released a video of the rocket attack on Ain Assad Air Base. The video also included footage from an attack with an improvised explosive device that targeted a convoy transporting supplies for the US-led coalition on the Yusufiya highway near the capital Baghdad on February 8.

The Khyber Brigade is only one of pro-Iranian armed groups which emerged in Iraq following the assassination of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy-Commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units, and Iran’s Quds Force Commander Maj. Gen. Qassim Soleimani.

US troops in Iraq are being attacked on a regular basis. On March 18, two supply convoys of the US-led coalition came under attack in the western province of al-Anbar and in the southern province of Qādisiyyah.

These attacks are meant to expel US forces from Iraq. However, Washington does not appear to be willing to leave the war-torn country anytime soon.

One would have thought that the Iraqi people would be glad that US troops are occupying their country and defending them from a hell cooked up by foreign gov’ts, bent on piracy.

you folks are still in zionist brainwashed modus….. well if u dont believe me maybe him

Qais Khazali, the leader of the Iraqi anti-terror movement Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq, has warned of a conspiracy against Iraq hatched by an Emirati security team which has reportedly arrived in the Arab country to manage the Iraqi intelligence service.

Quoting “reliable sources”, Khazali said on Sunday the Emirati team is supposed to run the Iraqi intelligence service.

“Has Iraq reached such a level of weakness to be crushed like this?” Khazali asked, questioning the Emirati group’s mission.

In a post on his Twitter account, the Iraqi cleric said, “What’s going on is very dangerous, and threatens the future of the Iraqi government.”

Scolding those who keep silent toward the conspiracies hatched against Iraq, he compared the performance of Emirati security forces to their performance in Libya and Yemen, and warned that they are rapidly implementing the plot.

He also referred to the transfer of 300 Iraqi security forces to the country’s customs points, and asked if the transfer is related to the Emirati team’s visit.

The security forces transferred to border areas upon a decision by the federal government allegedly include several Iraqi intelligence service officers who have been excluded for being loyal to the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), better known as Hashd al-Sha’abi.

The PMU is a government-sponsored umbrella organization composed of around 40 factions of volunteer counter-terrorism forces, including mostly Shia Muslim groups like Asa’ib, besides Sunni Muslims, Christians and Kurds.

read HIS words…and count 1+1=2

The current Iraqi administration, President, head of intelligence, head of army, are all already in the pockets of british zionism.

For anybody who his not braindead, that was obvious on that day when the iraqi PARLAMENT, over a year ago, passed a LAW which stated “all foreign forces must leace iraq” but the CURRENT IRAQI GOVERNMENT did not follow through to this day…on the contrary……

assasinations of soleimani and Co…….weekly attacks on PMU operations by Nato and IDF airforce with the FULL consent of the current treacherous iraqi government.

The PMU is beeing set up right now.And they know it.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
