TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Representative of the secretary-general of Iraq’s al-Nujaba Movement, a major Shiite resistance group, warned the US that the Iraqi forces are fully prepared to give a crushing and painful response to any aggressive military action.
In an interview with Tasnim, Seyed Abbas al-Moussavi said the Islamic resistance forces of Iraq are fully prepared for any confrontation with the American forces.
Downplaying the reports from American media that the US may launch a military attack on the Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Units), the Nujaba forces or the Iraqi Hezbollah, he said the Iraqi fighters are fully prepared to counter any military action.
“All resistance groups of Iraq have become united and emphasize that they are ready for the confrontation with the US, and their response will be very painful this time,” Moussavi warned.
He also dismissed the notion of a widespread American military operation in Iraq, describing the speculation about a possible US strike on the Hashd al-Shaabi forces as part of a psychological warfare against the Iraqi resistance forces, government and parliament.
“However, we emphasize that we are monitoring all aggressive movements of Americans, particularly these days, and we’re prepared to confront any measure,” he added.
The representative of the secretary-general of al-Nujaba Movement finally stressed that the Americans have no winning card in Iraq and also lack any political and social credibility among the Iraqi people.
