Former Virginia Republican member Richard Black confirmed, Sunday, that the beneficiaries of the air strikes previously ordered by the Biden administration against factions of the Popular Mobilization Forces on the Iraqi-Syrian border are ISIS terrorists .
Press TV quoted in an interview translated by / the information / Richard Black as saying, “The Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces mainly fought against ISIS , and they were very effective against them, so when the United States attacks the PMU , it helps ISIS terrorists in Iraq and Syria. “.
He added, "The US administration's allegations that the strike was in response to a missile strike on Erbil airport are unfounded, because none of those factions has claimed responsibility for it, and it is unlikely that the US leadership will know who carried out these operations."
"The Biden administration chose to use the missile attacks as a pretext to attack the Iraqi (counterterrorism) forces, which were effectively preventing ISIS fighters from operating along the Syrian-Iraqi border in clear violation of international law," he said.
And he continued, "The policy that has always assumed that the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces were the ones that launched the missiles gives ISIS the ability to direct American military strikes on any faction that the United States considers its enemy, with the help of the terrorist group, and this strategy is unfair and immoral."
Black noted that "the US air strikes on Iraqi factions angered many lawmakers, which prompted them to demand that the powers of the presidential war be restricted by repealing two laws that allowed US presidents to use military force around the world." End / 25 z
