The movement in a statement strongly condemned the American attack on the border posts of the PMU forces on the Iraqi-Syrian border and warned the perpetrators and facilitators of this crime that the Islamic Resistance would respond harshly and proportionately.
According to the Communication and Media Affairs Centre of al-Nujaba in Iran, the statement said, “At a time when this dear country is facing dangerous twists and turns in all areas, the American occupying forces are expanding their actions in violation of the sovereignty of Iraq and in addition to the attacks against the territory of this country, they are increasing the number of their forces and installing defensive systems within the cities and interfering in security and political issues.”
The al-Nujaba Islamic Resistance Movement condemned the latest crime of the American occupiers who targeted a number of warriors belonging to the Popular Mobilization Forces and noted, “The mission of these warriors is to protect the borders of Iraq from the American-trained terrorists who are financially supported by Wahhabis.”
At the end of his statement, al-Nujaba, while emphasizing that the crimes of the enemy increase the determination of the warriors to fight terrorism and expel the occupiers, stated, “The Islamic Resistance will give a harsh and proportionate response to this crime and the perpetrators will pay a heavy price. Also, at the time of payback, the accomplices and facilitators of this crime will not be ignored.”
