The meeting came two days after US military drone strike on a convoy at Baghdad airport killed Iranian military commander Qasem Suleimani and Iraqi police leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.

“There is no need for the presence of American forces after the victory over ISIS. We have our own armed forces that are able to protect the country” – said Ammar al-Shibli, a member of the parliamentary legal Committee.

Now about 5,000 American troops remain in Iraq, most of them as advisers.

-Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has promised: “Severe revenge” on those who killed Qasem Suleimani.

-The United States Department of State has called on its citizens in Iraq to leave the country immediately due to the tense situation in the region.

-US President Donald Trump has threatened to strike 52 Iranian targets if Tehran carries out attacks targeting Americans or American targets.

-Britain has decided to strengthen security measures in the Middle East amid tensions in the region after the murder of Iranian General Qasem Suleimani.
