Abdul Mahdi calls for the implementation of Parliament’s decision to withdraw US and NATO forces from Iraq

On Wednesday, former Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi urged the House of Representatives to activate their decision which calls for the withdrawal of foreign forces from Iraq. This comes in light of the recent events in the Gaza Strip, Palestine.

Abdul Mahdi issued a statement today stating that two urgent demands must be met in response to the aggression against Palestine. Firstly, the House of Representatives’ decision of 1/5/2020, which entails the withdrawal of all American and NATO forces with all their names, must be immediately implemented.

Abdul Mahdi urged preparedness at all levels and fields for the upcoming battle.

The Iraqi Parliament agreed on a resolution on January 5, 2020, requiring Baghdad to take steps to withdraw foreign soldiers from the nation.

The decision was made two days after an airstrike near Baghdad airport by Washington resulted in the deaths of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces, and Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Iranian Quds Force.
