An Iranian-backed militia in Iraq threatened on Thursday to attack US forces in the country over US President Donald Trump recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
"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.
The group, established in 2013 and supported by Iran's Revolutionary Guards, numbers around 1,500 fighters and is part of the Hashed al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization) auxiliary force that has fought alongside the army against ISIS.
Following Trumps announcement, Iran strongly condemned the decision, saying it threatened a "new intifada", or uprising against Israel.
"The provocative and unwise decision by the U.S.... will provoke Muslims and inflame a new intifada and an escalation of radical, angry and violent behavior," said the Iranian foreign ministry in a statement on its website, according to AFP.
The statement said Trump's move was a "clear violation of international resolutions" and that Jerusalem was "an inseparable part of Palestine".
"Iran strongly condemns this move and urges the international community, influential countries and especially Islamic countries to prevent the implementation of this US action, which is only of benefit to the Zionist regime, to preserve the stability of the region," said the statement.

And get blown to hell for trying. These scum have to be annihilated and sent to meet their phony god ASAP.
DOUBLE SECRET PROBATION!
If it wasn’t for the likelihood that a few American soldiers would die out of sheer odds, I would love to see our soldiers destroy them if they attacked as an army. But they won’t. A suicide attack will happen somewhere.
Sounds like a declaration of war. Need to wipe out that brigade.
Thank God Mattis is in there because they can return fire without calling the white house. The green on blue threat is very big in Afghanistan. I’m pretty sure they are permitted to carry at all times.
Prayers for them all throughout the day.
Mattis will have to check with his buddies in the deep state/GOPe before any action is taken against his peaceful mussulmen buddies ...
We could always let Iran know Tehran could cease to exist
I guess they are going to destroy us an 11th time
Why is Iran still a country and not a glass-lined parking lot?
Okay, then we will bomb Tehran.
“Sounds like a declaration of war. Need to wipe out that brigade.”
As quickly and with as much prejudice as possible.
An Iranian attack on US forces in Iraq allows a bombing attack on Quom
They are burning through Obama’s unmarked cash, so they may need an excuse to do more extortion. As if they need another excuse to rail against The Great White Devil. F them!
