US to sanction Iraqi resistance

Tehran, The US Hourse of Representatives, in another overt interference with the affairs in Iraq and with the accusation of Iran's intervention, demanded some resistance groups be sanctioned.

In its act, the US House of Representatives claimed it is sanctioning terror groups and countries that destabilize Iraq, on top of which is Iran, according to Iraqi media.

Some Iraqi media wrote that the act can be very dangerous for the security of Iraq.

The US House of Representatives and Sennate had already passed some acts that sanctioned the Iraqi groups that had the biggest role in fighting and defeating Daesh (ISIS) terrorists.

The Iraqi resistance groups are all a part of the Popular Mobilization Forces that were formed with the Fatwa of Ayatollah Sistani to counter Daesh. Later in 2014, the Popular Mobilization Forces were under command of the Iraqi prime minister and the commander of the armed forces.

Nonetheless, the US insists on alleging that the Popular Mobilization Forces are affiliated to Iran.

The Iraqi authorities have repeatedly warned against the US' interference with their security decisions, but the US keeps pressing them.

What's more, the Iraqi resistance groups have announced that the presence of the US forces in the postDaesh era is considered invasion and if it continues they will treat the US forces like invaders.

The UK Ambassador to Iraq Jonathan Wilks had told The Independent on Wednesday that according to UK intelligence, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Emirates were the biggest financial supporters of terrorist groups, including Daesh and Nosra Front, in Iraq.

Trying to exonerate the allies of London, he said that the fund was not necessarily provided by the three countries' governments. However, repeated confessions of the West to the identity of the supports of terrorism in Iraq, proves that Washington's accusations against Iran are actually just baseless.
