Al Arabiya, 12 February 2018 - Qais Khazali, a Popular Mobilization militia commander, threatened to target American troops in Iraq and voiced rejection of America’s military presence in the country after they eliminated ISIS.

Earlier this month, Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi said there was a plan to gradually decrease the number of US-led coalition troops.

“The battle against ISIS has ended, and so the level of the American presence will be reduced,” government spokesman Saad al-Hadithi told the Associated Press last week.
