Al-Sadr says Iraq won’t become ‘foreign colony’
Recent weeks saw several attacks on US and foreign forces in Iraq

By Ali Jawad

BAGHDAD (AA) – Firebrand Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr said on Sunday that Iraq will not become a foreign colony.

"We will not allow Iraq to become a foreign colony…,” he said in a tweet. “[Iraq] will be a strong and sovereign state.”

On Friday, al-Sadr called for an investigation into repeated attacks on foreign missions in Iraq and bringing perpetrators to justice.

The call came after two Shia groups, Iraqi Hezbollah and al-Nujaba, threatened to launch more attacks against US forces in Iraq.

In recent weeks, several attacks targeted the US Embassy in Iraq, US forces, and other troops involved in the International Coalition against Deash/ISIS terror group in Iraq.
