(IraqiNews.com) BAGHDAD – Al-Salam Brigades, the revitalized form of Muqtada al-Sadr’s Mahdi Army, announced on Wednesday its insistence on targeting American troops that Washington plans to send to Iraq and said that its members ‘are thirsty for the blood of Americans’.

The spokesman for Salam Brigades, Alaa Abboud in a press statement, said, “The Iraqi army and Al-Hashed al-Shaabi forces are capable of freeing Mosul. The resistance factions have experience in urban warfare, while al-Hashed forces don’t have any experience on the ground. ”

Abboud added that, “Al- Salam Brigades are ready to cleanse ISIS from Mosul with the support of ten thousand fighters if US forces do not intervene, and if they do then we will target them. We are thirsty for Americans’ blood.”

US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter announced on July 11, 2016,  that the US would send about 560 extra troops to Iraq for helping the Iraqi forces in their battle to liberate Mosul from the ISIS grip.

  1. Be cool but firm, ” Thirsty of blood ” that is a tribal expression :))
    Al-Salam Brigades has progressive ideology.

    Long Live!

  2. The US should let ISIS roll over you ungrateful miscreants. You would all be dead or Sunni already if it were not for the coalition.

  3. Esos grupos shiitas son tan terroristas como Isis. Ellos saben que solos jamas sacarían a Isis de ningun lado, un ejemplo Tikrit, Baijy y muchos otros. El gobierno bajo ningun concepto debe dejarlos entrar a mosul, son unas plagas..

  4. The day is coming when the Iraqi military will be or may be forced to disarm all militias in Iraq. They undermine the authority and integrity of the Iraqi military. Of course, Iran and their stooge, Al-Sadr will be very, very upset about this. All militias and other armed, untrained and sectarian groups will have to give up their arms if Iraq ever hopes to have civil peace within its territory

  5. I wish Sadr would shut up and drop the foolish protests and do something constructive Luje kill Isis and work with the coalition…. If not for has liberation he would likely have been killed by Saddam by now sohe ought to have a lot more respect and gratitude
