Iraq announces total withdrawal of US combat troops

Baghdad, Dec 29 (Prensa Latina) Iraq on Wednesday announced the total withdrawal of combat troops from the United States, who were leading an international military coalition with the alleged objective of fighting terrorism.

Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazemi confirmed that only foreign military advisers will remain in the country.

“The combat missions of the international coalition ended and all its forces and equipment left,” he said in a message on social networks.

Iraqi Resistance groups reject the presence of foreign forces, especially American soldiers, whom they consider occupiers.

The chief of the United States Central Command, General Kenneth McKenzie, explained that some 2,500 soldiers from his country and 1,000 from the coalition will continue in Iraq as trainers and advisers.

Leading a military alliance of some 50 countries, in 2003 the Pentagon invaded and occupied Iraq with the aim of overthrowing President Saddam Hussein.

Over the past 18 years, the US soldiers have committed numerous violations of Iraqi sovereignty, one of the most scandalous was the assassinations in Baghdad of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani and Iraqi Deputy Commander Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes.
