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

The ministry also summoned U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Douglas Silliman to register its displeasure with the move, according to ministry spokesman Ahmed Mahjoob.

An Iranian-backed militia in Iraq threatened on Thursday to attack USA forces in the country in retaliation for President Donald Trump recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett is unconcerned about what Israel will be asked to give up in return for United States President Donald Trump's expected announcements about Jerusalem, he said at The Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference Wednesday.

"The US administration has to backtrack on this decision to stop any risky escalation that would fuel extremism and create conditions favourable to terrorism", it said.

"The US administration has to backtrack on this decision to stop any risky escalation that would fuel extremism and create conditions favorable to terrorism", it said.

"This decision is condemned and decried, it hurt the feelings of hundreds of millions of Arabs and Muslims", his office said in a statement.

"This will not change the fact that Jerusalem is an occupied territory that needs to be returned to its legitimate Palestinian owners", the source said.

Not only Iraq is protesting this decision of trump.

"The decision by Trump on Al-Quds (Jerusalem) makes it legitimate to strike the American forces in Iraq", Al-Nojaba militia chief Akram al-Kaabi said in a statement.

Nujaba, which has about 10,000 fighters, is one of the most important militias in Iraq.
