Today, followed the reaction to the murder in Baghdad a high-ranking Iranian military — General Qasem Soleimani the commander of the Shiite militia Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. The official representative of the commander of the military forces of Iraq Abdel Karim Khalaf said that it was decided to restrict the activities of U.S. military forces in the country. The us side has already notified about the decision.
They can only act with the consent of the Iraqi side, but after such a blow in the back, of course, we will limit their work, said RIA Novosti Abdel Karim Khalaf.
Iraqi Authorities are conducting an investigation against individuals, which could give the Americans information about the movements of Soleimani, in particular, his flight from Damascus to Baghdad and beyond Baghdad airport, where he was killed.
Earlier it became known that NATO was suspending work on the training of the Iraqi military. Now Baghdad will obviously have to take training into their own hands. According to Khalaf, Iraq has such capabilities.
on the night of January 3 the United States conducted a special operation in the area of Baghdad international airport against the commander of the special forces, “al-Quds” major General Qassem Soleimani. States consider him to be involved in the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad committed on the last day of last year.
