A member of the Political Bureau of Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq, Saad al-Saadi, told Shafaq News Agency, "al-Hashd al-Shaabi is a security system that follows the orders issued by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, while the resistance factions are the ones that reject the American presence on Iraqi soil," indicating that the factions do not follow those orders.
This comes at a time when attacks targeting sensitive areas in Iraq where foreign forces are present have increased. Erbil International Airport, Ain al-Assad Air Base, Baghdad International Airport, and the US Embassy were bombed, in a clear indication of a new escalation between armed Shiite factions. and America.

Al-Saadi stressed that the resistance factions will have no other choice but confront the American occupation militarily, stressing that these factions are the ones who target all American bases and interests in Iraq.
Al-Saadi noted that the US embassy is not a target for the resistance, noting that the latter does not attack diplomatic missions, especially the embassy.
