Baghdad / Obelisk: Following the announcement of the US Department of Defense – the Pentagon, that it adopted the bombing of the headquarters of one of the Popular Mobilization Brigades in Al-Qaim, in the west of the country, all American bases in Iraq began with a “state of maximum alert”.

Meanwhile, Arab news agencies said that the Taji camp, north of Baghdad, was being hit by Katyusha rockets.

Based on these developments, the caretaker head, Adel Abdul Mahdi, called for an emergency meeting of the Ministerial Council for National Security to discuss the repercussions of the crisis.

In the capital, Baghdad, it seems that there is a direct impact on the course of events, as Arab news agencies reported the kidnapping of a foreign journalist holding American citizenship in the center of the capital.

In the popular crowd west of Anbar province.

Political analyst Fadel Abu Ragheef told Al-Masalla that the new strike is a new complication of the security and political conditions, which are already turbulent in Iraq, expecting more crises due to the American escalation.

Abu Ragheef considered that it would have been better for Washington to respond within Iranian territory if it believed that Iran had a role in bombing its camps and bases in Iraq.

Abu Ragheef warned that Washington would resort to settling its accounts with Iran on Iraqi soil.

In response to the American strike, Representative Salem Salem considered that the American bombing of the crowd sites, especially the brigade 45 and 46, is a flagrant violation of Iraqi sovereignty and a disregard for the Iraqi security issue.

In an interview with Al-Masala, Representative Hassan Salem called on the government, its security forces, the Iraqi air force, and the army’s flight to stay away from the language of diplomacy, condemnation, and reciprocity.

The resigned Prime Minister, Adel Abdul-Mahdi, considered that the American strike against the PMF factions is a serious violation that threatens the security of Iraq and the region.
