In post on his Twitter account, Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi said the axis of resistance is in full readiness and vigilance and will respond doubly to any threat from “crazy Trump”.
The resistance axis will neither retreat nor get defeated, he said, adding that it has no fear (of confronting the US).
Sheikh Kaabi underlined that countering the occupiers (US forces) will continue until their full withdrawal from Iraq.
Anti-US sentiment has been running high in Iraq following Washington’s January 3 assassination of top Iranian anti-terror commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani and senior Hashd al-Sha’abi commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, in addition to several other comrades, outside the Baghdad airport.
Just two days later, Iraqi lawmakers unanimously passed a bill mandating the expulsion of all foreign troops from the country.
Washington, however, has threatened sanctions should US troops be expelled from Iraq instead of ending the occupation of the Arab country.
