    [size=52]Washington is targeting the second side of the factions square... and there are fears of a repeat of the airport scenario[/size]

    [size=45]Baghdad/ Tamim Al-Hassan[/size]
    [size=45]Armed factions in Iraq have increased their alert level after the third American attack targeting these formations within less than two weeks.[/size]
    [size=45]A raid on Sunday evening targeted the Al-Nujaba Movement in Kirkuk, which was preparing to launch an attack on American forces, bringing the total casualties of the factions to 14 dead since the Gaza war.[/size]
    [size=45]On the other hand, the leader of Al-Nujaba, Akram Al-Kaabi, whose faction participated in the liberation of Mosul 6 years ago, threatened the United States to “pay the price” after the recent raid. Al-Nujaba is the second party in the group of four factions - responsible for bombing American forces - that are being targeted in Iraq.[/size]
    [size=45]The latest escalation came one day after Prime Minister Mohamed Al-Sudani warned Washington against launching a new “attack” against the country.[/size]
    [size=45]Sources close to the group that calls itself the “Iraqi Resistance” say that it has increased “the warning level for fear of a repeat of the airport scenario,” referring to the killing of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy head of the PMF, and Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in an American raid near Baghdad Airport in early 2020.[/size]
    [size=45]Those sources who spoke to Al-Mada expect the possibility of “American raids escalating to the point of targeting figures or faction leaders.”[/size]
    [size=45]Yesterday morning, the factions carried out the funeral of 5 victims of the new bombing that targeted a group of fighters from the Nujaba Movement in the Dibs area, west of Kirkuk.[/size]
    [size=45]According to the information, the group affiliated with “Akram Al-Kaabi” was planning to bomb one of the camps containing American forces, most likely the Al-Harir base in Kurdistan.[/size]
    [size=45]An American military official said that the United States carried out a “self-defense” strike in Iraq against an “imminent threat” at a drone launch site, according to Reuters.[/size]
    [size=45]It is not yet known whether the attack on “Al-Nujaba” was carried out with a drone or a missile. Washington appears to have begun using a “blow by blow” policy, as the raid was preceded by 3 attacks claimed by the so-called “Iraqi resistance” at home and in Syria against American sites.[/size]
    [size=45]The factions returned to the war 3 days after the end of the Hamas-Israel truce, and on Sunday, the Iraqi groups attacked bases; Ain al-Assad, al-Harir, and missiles were launched from Rabia, north of Mosul, against sites in Syria.[/size]
    [size=45]In addition, the leader of the Al-Nujaba Movement, Akram Al-Kaabi, yesterday, Monday, sent a message to the American forces in Iraq, while confirming that Iraq will be liberated soon.[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Kaabi said in a statement: “First of all, let the sinful occupier know that the martyrdom of a group of righteous and noble Mujahideen only increases our determination and steadfastness and kindles the flame of revenge in our hearts. I swear by the orphans, the tears of bereaved mothers, the raging hearts of their families, and the pure blood of the martyrs, you will pay a heavy price for your crime.”[/size]
    [size=45]He stressed, saying: “Iraq is our Iraq and the land is our land, you renegade criminal invaders, and we will soon cleanse it of your filth and liberate it from your colonialism, and God is a witness to what we say.”[/size]
    [size=45]With the escalation of events in Gaza last month, Al-Nujaba, which participated in the battles to liberate Mosul in 2017, was the faction closest to participating in the war against Israel.[/size]
    [size=45]At that time, the movement published a video on its news platforms, claiming that it was “the most qualified resistance to enter Gaza due to its high training and armament.”[/size]
    [size=45]Joe Biden, the US President, had previously threatened to assassinate Akram Al-Kaabi during a phone call last February, with Prime Minister Mohammed Al-Sudani, due to Al-Nujaba’s involvement in attacking American sites in Syria, according to what was published by “Middle East Eye.” The website said that Biden “gently” reminded the Iraqi Prime Minister that the American administration “supports his government to a broad degree, but this support is neither free nor open.”[/size]
    [size=45]The report quoted Musaed Al-Sudani, who is also a Shiite political leader, as saying that Al-Sudani must “exploit his proximity to the Iraqi armed factions to restrain them to ensure continued American support.” This is exactly the content of that call.”[/size]
    [size=45]“Al-Nujaba” is the second faction to be targeted by American forces after two attacks last month, targeting militants affiliated with the Hezbollah Brigades in Jurf al-Sakhar and Abu Ghraib.[/size]
    [size=45]A few days ago, the Hezbollah Brigades announced the identity of what they called “the resistance,” and they include, in addition to the Brigades, Al-Nujaba, the Loyal Ansar Allah, and the Sayyid Al-Shuhada Brigades.[/size]
    [size=45]At that time, Asaib Ahl al-Haq, led by Qais Khazali, objected and hinted that it was the fifth faction in the group that had been ignored.[/size]
    [size=45]Politically, the government has not yet issued any statement regarding the incident, and the Popular Mobilization Forces have not announced any details.[/size]
    [size=45]Likewise, the Pentagon and the US Department of Defense, at the time of writing the report, had not issued any comment on the incident. Leaks indicate that Al-Sudani had prior knowledge of the attacks, and there is “coordination” between Baghdad and Washington to “restrain the factions.”[/size]
    [size=45]The latest raid on “Al-Nujaba” occurred a day after a call between Al-Sudani and US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.[/size]
    [size=45]A statement by Al-Sudani said that during the contact between the two sides, he renewed “Iraq’s position rejecting any aggression against Iraqi lands,” stressing the protection of the “international coalition.”[/size]
    [size=45]On the other hand, another US State Department statement about the call said that Belkin urged the Iraqi Prime Minister to protect Americans in the country.[/size]
    [size=45]The Jurf al-Sakhar attack at the end of last November, in which 9 members of the Hezbollah Brigades were killed, took place a day after a meeting between Al-Sudani and US Ambassador Elena Romanowski.[/size]
    [size=45]Last Sunday, Mithal Al-Alusi, the former deputy of Al-Mada, said, “The Iraqi government will no longer be able to protect the factions from American attacks.”[/size]
    [size=45]It is believed that these raids thwarted the efforts of parties in the coordination framework that leads the government to persuade Washington not to expand the response inside Iraq.[/size]
    [size=45]Night of missiles[/size]
    [size=45]In parallel with the attack in Kirkuk, RPG shells were being fired in Najaf against the headquarters of the Dawa Party led by Nouri al-Maliki.[/size]
    [size=45]In a statement, the party denounced these attacks, which also targeted the offices of “Al-Da’wa” candidates for the elections, but said that it “will not be tempted to respond.”[/size]
    [size=45]The attack occurred on Sunday evening and yesterday morning, in Najaf near the Nationality Department, and later in Basra in the Al-Maqal and Al-Jamiyyat areas.[/size]
    [size=45]It is also likely that other attacks against the offices of the Dawa Party occurred in the Husseiniyah and Sadr City areas, east of Baghdad.[/size]
    [size=45]In its statement, the Dawa Party described these actions as “falling within the framework of disturbing civil peace and intimidating the safe.”[/size]
    [size=45]The party stressed “not to be drawn into battles between the people of the same arena and the people of the same sect, out of concern for the sanctity of the blood of all Iraqis.”[/size]
    [size=45]The party did not hold any party responsible for the incident, but it is likely that supporters of Muqtada al-Sadr, the leader of the movement, are behind these attacks due to comments made by figures affiliated with “dawa” against al-Sadr.[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Sadr's fans had closed 18 offices affiliated with the Dawa Party in 10 governorates last July, due to accusations that the Dawa Party had insulted Muhammad Sadiq al-Sadr (the father of Muqtada al-Sadr).[/size]
    [size=45]At that time, Al-Sadr considered what happened as a “revolutionary” movement to stop attacks on scholars, before declaring a truce until a law was enacted that prevents “insulting scholars.[/size]
