[size=52]Sources close to the government: Washington's raids caused embarrassment to the Prime Minister[/size]

[size=45]Translation / Hamed Ahmed[/size]
[size=45]Sources revealed to the British website, Middle East Eye, that armed factions in Iraq backed by Iran agreed to suspend attacks on American forces, provided that Washington agrees to return to a state of calm, while sources close to the government indicated that the American raids caused embarrassment to Prime Minister Mustafa. Al-Kazemi.[/size]
[size=45]Sources told MEE that leaders of several armed factions met in the capital, Baghdad, on Monday evening, and agreed to contain the situation after armed factions bombed areas in Deir ez-Zor inside Syria located near the Omar oil fields, apparently targeting US forces there.[/size]
[size=45]The bombing came after the US forces carried out air strikes on Sunday evening on sites belonging to armed factions on the border between Iraq and Syria, killing four fighters.[/size]
[size=45]The sources said that Monday's meeting was held in the office of the head of the Popular Mobilization Authority, Faleh al-Fayyad, where several armed factions agreed to "activate a truce with the American forces, provided that the Americans remain calm."[/size]
[size=45]According to the sources, the meeting was attended by the leader of the Badr Organization, Hadi al-Amiri, the chief of staff of the crowd, Abu Fadak al-Muhammadawi, and representatives of Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq, Kata'ib Hezbollah, Kata'ib Sayyid al-Shuhada' and others.[/size]
[size=45]One of those who attended the meeting said that the leaders of the armed groups “expressed their satisfaction with the attacks launched in response to the American raid,” noting that “they were ready to return to the informal truce, provided that the Americans remain calm as well.”[/size]
[size=45]Meanwhile, one of the leaders said that “a section of the armed factions is studying the option of directing another attack inside Syrian territory, but there was no approval of this proposal.”[/size]
[size=45]On Monday morning, the United States defended its decision to carry out air strikes in Iraq and Syria, but the two countries unilaterally condemned the strikes as a violation of their sovereignty.[/size]
[size=45]The United States said the strikes were in response to attacks on American contractors and Iraqi facilities, and that the strikes targeted weapons depots and facilities in three locations, one in Iraq and two in Syria.[/size]
[size=45]Pentagon spokesman John Kirby described the strikes as “defensive,” adding that the United States had “taken necessary, appropriate and intentional action aimed at minimizing the risk of escalation, as well as sending a clear message of deterrence.”[/size]
[size=45]The Pentagon first claimed that the raids did not cause any casualties, but a prominent leader of the Hashd forces told MEE that four fighters were killed near the Iraq-Syria border.[/size]
[size=45]The commander added, "One of the raids targeted a house used by fighters of the 14th Brigade inside the Iraqi borders. The blow was devastating. The remains of two fighters were collected, while the bodies of the other two fighters were intact.”[/size]
[size=45]As for the other two raids, they targeted two sites of the Hezbollah Brigades inside Syrian territory. For an unknown reason, brigades evacuated these two locations hours before the strike, and fighters gathered 500 meters away. Eight fighters were slightly injured as a result of the storm.”[/size]
[size=45]For its part, the Iraqi government denounced the strikes that took place on its territory and said it was "examining all legal options" to prevent the recurrence of such behavior.[/size]
[size=45]According to a source close to Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi, the government was left "embarrassed" because of what the Biden administration had done.[/size]
[size=45]The source said, "Frankly, this raid embarrassed Prime Minister Al-Kazemi, and without doubt made his task in preparing for the early parliamentary elections more complicated."[/size]
[size=45]He added, "The prime minister, since taking office, has been trying to contain these factions and keep Iraq away from the atmosphere of the US-Iranian conflict. However, the Americans embarrassed him and put him under even more pressure.”[/size]
[size=45]Sunday's air strikes constituted the second military action of the Biden administration in the region since taking office. In February, US planes launched air strikes against facilities in Syria belonging to armed factions near the border with Iraq.[/size]
[size=45]The source close to Al-Kazemi continued, “The American raid this time is similar to the missiles fired by these groups. Both of them talk about Iraq’s sovereignty at a time when they all contribute to its violation and belittling Iraq and its government, including the Americans.[/size]
[size=45]On the other hand, a prominent leader in the Popular Mobilization Authority said that the raids may have been intended to embarrass Al-Kazemi, after he attended a parade of the crowd’s weapons in Diyala last Saturday, on the occasion of the seventh anniversary of the establishment of the Popular Mobilization Forces.[/size]
[size=45]Since the beginning of this year, armed factions have carried out at least 40 attacks against US interests in Iraq.[/size]
