  • Iraqi resistance groups say on alert for false-flag US operations

Iraq’s anti-terror resistance groups have reiterated their readiness to counter any possible attack by US occupation forces, saying that they are also on high alert for any false-flag US operation aimed at creating further unrest in the Arab country.

Asbat al-Thaireen, or League of the Revolutionaries, showed off its intelligence power by releasing its drone footage of US-occupied Ain al-Asad Airbase. The group also released drone footage of another US-occupied base, the Harir Camp north of Erbil.

Asbat al-Thaireen had earlier issued a statement to caution Iraqi forces against staying close to Americans in order to protect their lives.

The group said it had prepared itself for an attack on Ain al-Asad as the US undersecretary of defense and a number of other American officials visited it but called off the operation after realizing a number of Iraqi troops were nearby.

The anti-terror resistance group says the operation was called off despite the fact that American reconnaissance drones had not noticed the resistance fighters.

The statement also warned that the group possesses equipment and weapons that the enemy would not even imagine, but has tasted them at Taji military base.

On Thursday, Kata'ib Hezbollah warned US President Donald Trump about taking any hostile measures against the Iraqi nation and resistance groups.

In a statement, Kata'ib Hezbollah said providing that all American troops in Iraq kept withdrawing from the Arab country until the last soldier, no attack would be launched by the resistance group against them.

The statements come against the backdrop of suspicious attacks in recent weeks, which are described as false-flag operations by the US military.

Trump on Wednesday threatened Iran with a "heavy price" if the Islamic Republic or its allies in Iraq attack American troops in Iraq.

"Upon information and belief, Iran or its proxies are planning a sneak attack on US troops and/or assets in Iraq," Trump wrote on Twitter. "If this happens, Iran will pay a very heavy price, indeed!"

The US deployed Patriot missile systems to Iraq last week, apparently as a precaution against possible rocket attacks.

However, Iraqi resistance groups are on high alert for any possible false-flag operation by the US forces, which are supposed to leave the Arab country.

The Iraqi military has called for an immediate withdrawal of all foreign troops from the country in accordance with the parliamentary resolution passed earlier this year following a string of US strikes against multiple PMU positions.
