Iraqi resistance to respond against US forces’ attacks (+Photo)

Baghdad, Jan 24 (Prensa Latina) The general secretary of the Sayyed al-Shuhada Brigades in Iraq, Abu Alaa al-Wala'i, confirmed the beginning of a second phase of the Resistance's response against US forces in the region.

In his account on X, the Iraqi leader indicated that this stage will include the blockade of Israel’s maritime navigation in the Mediterranean and putting its ports out of commission.

Al-Walaei promised to continue operations until the lifting of the siege on the Gaza Strip and the end of the Zionist massacres against the Palestinian people.

In turn, the military spokesman for the Hizbullah-Iraq Brigades, Jaafar Al-Husseini, reiterated the continuation of operations against enemy strongholds in support of Gaza until the cessation of Israeli aggression, backed by the United States.

The Al Mayadeen pan-Arab channel reported US attacks on Popular Mobilization Forces headquarters in Al-Qaim on the Iraq-Syria border, and in Jurf Al-Nasr, south of Baghdad.

The US air raids caused the death of a person in Al-Qaim, west of Anbar, and material damage to a training building in Jurf Al-Nasr.

The Secretary of Defense of the United States, Lloyd Austin, assured that the attacks were a retaliation for attacks against the United States and coalition forces in Iraq and Syria.

The Pentagon previously acknowledged that about 70 soldiers were wounded in nearly 140 attacks on military enclaves in Iraq and Syria since October 17th.
