Due to an increase in attacks on US military sites, Iraq seeks a swift and peacefully negotiated withdrawal of US-led military forces from its territory. The US presence, according to Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani, is destabilizing the region because of the fallout from Israel’s war on Gaza. “This relationship needs to be reorganized so that it is not a target or an excuse for any party, foreign or domestic, to meddle with the stability of Iraq and the surrounding area,” al-Sudani told Reuters. “Let’s decide on a timeline [for the coalition’s withdrawal] that is, to be honest, brief so they don’t stay long and the attacks continue.” “This [the end of the Gaza war] is the only solution,” he continued. If not, we’ll witness further enlargement of the battleground.
