Iraqi paramilitary group: US troops may become targets after US Jerusalem decision

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Freedom League (JKPFL), has strongly denounced the US President Donald Trump's unilateral proclamation to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Zionist Israel, urging on the United Nations to take cognizance of America's violations of the United Nations resolutions on Palestine. Today the Iraqi foreign Ministry urged the US Ambassador to meet and discuss this issue.

The spiritual head of Iraq's Shiites Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani in a statement "denounced and condemned the American decision that injures the feelings of hundreds of millions of Arabs and Muslims".

Farhan pointed out that the United States president's decision to move the embassy "comes after the Arabs received him in a historic summit in the Saudi capital and gave him money, which could have built entire countries".

Jerusalem remains at the core of the Israel-Palestine conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem - now occupied by Israel - might eventually serve as the capital of a future Palestinian state.

The Iran-backed militia Harakat Hizballah al-Nujaba said Trump's decision could become a "legitimate reason" to attack USA forces in Iraq.

The United States is leading an worldwide coalition helping Iraq fight Islamic State and has provided air and ground support. It has more than 5,000 troops deployed to Iraq. Though made up of Iraqis, it is backed by Iran and is helping Tehran create a supply route through Iraq to Damascus.

The group, established in 2013 and supported by Iran's Revolutionary Guards, numbers around 1,500 fighters and is part of the Hashed al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilisation) auxiliary force that has fought alongside the army against the Islamic State group.
