TEHRAN (FNA)- The US-led coalition military helicopters have recently carried out another heliborne operation in Northern Iraq to evacuate a number of terrorist commanders from the region, Secretary-General of Iraq’s Badr Organization Mohammad Mahdi al-Bayati said on Sunday.
Al-Bayati said that the US helicopters carried out heliborne operation in Tuzkhurmato region in Eastern Salahuddin, rescuing commanders of the newly-formed terrorist group of al-Rayat al-Bayedh (the white flags) from the region.
He further quoted local Kurds as saying that as the Iraqi security forces and the country’s volunteer forces of Hashd al-Shaabi arrived in the region to hit the White Flags and ISIL terrorists, when the US helicopters rushed to assist the terrorists and evacuate them from the region via a heliborne operation.
Al-Bayati went on to say that the White Flags fighters are a combination of Takfiri terrorists and illegal Kurdish political parties.
Iraq’s Kata’ib Hezbollah (Hezbollah Battalions) group on Saturday warned the US military forces to leave the Arab country voluntarily or wait for dire consequences.
Kata’ib Hezbollah was quoted by al-Aba news channel as saying in a statement that Washington is attempting to deploy its military forces in Iraq again under false pretexts.
It cautioned the Americans not to think of returning to Iraq or they will be forced to leave the country.
The statement also called on the Iraqi parliament to adopt a firm position against the presence of US forces in Iraq.
H/t reader squodgy:
“If there is any other conclusion to this report, other than TOTAL evidence the USA have been looking after, arming, training, funding, evacuating and generally protecting the murderous barbarians they call ISIS/ISIL/AlNusra/Syrian Free Army which they have claimed they are destroying for five years, please provide evidence.”
