Ali al-Asadi, president of the Hezbollah Al-Nujaba Political Council, considered it inadmissible that, at the time of the attack, the anti-aircraft system, controlled by US military troops, was deactivated.

This protection system covers Baghdad’s Green Zone, where Al-Kadhimi’s residence, the US Embassy, several diplomatic missions and state offices are located.

If US responsibility for the attack is proven, he said, its ambassador should be expelled.

Iraq’s Joint Operations Command requested explanations from the Pentagon about the inactivity of the anti-aircraft defense system at the time of the drone attack on Al-Kadhimi’s residence.

A wave of condemnations and repudiation followed the attempted assassination, which some people described as a maneuver to divert attention from the crimes committed by the United States and its allies on Iraqi territory.
