However, if the Americans have “an unkind will against the security of our country or take the slightest step against Iran, they will face our toughest reaction,” the general added.

“Iran is closely monitoring the actions and movements of Americans in the region,” Baghey said.

The general also noted that the actions carried out by Iraqi citizens in recent weeks against US military bases in Iraq are “a normal reaction of the Iraqi people and resistance forces.”

U.S. plans to strike at the Iraqi Mobilization Forces (IMF) militias are Washington’s attempt to distract public opinion from the aftermath of the coronavirus outbreak and the ensuing chaos, IMF commander-in-chief Ali al-Husseini said, quoted by local agency IFP.

Husseini added that the US authorities are faced with a very difficult situation inside the country and are trying to send the crisis beyond their borders. “In addition, the US is trying to drag other countries into crisis and cash in on it,” the military leader added.

The PMU has further developed its capabilities and is now much stronger than it was in 2014, Husseini emphasized.

“The US will never dare to attack IMF groups. And if this happens, the IMF will give the right answer to any aggression, since many US objects are in the PMU’s fire zone,” summed up Husseini.
