[Field News] Gaza War Butterfly Effect… Iraqi Prime Minister Announces U.S. Withdrawal

In the aftermath of the war between Israel and the Palestinian armed faction Hamas, calls for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq are rapidly gaining public attention.

As members of the pro-Iranian militia who attacked U.S. military bases in Iraq died in retaliatory bombings by the U.S. military, public opinion was inflamed and the long-standing argument for withdrawal was reignited, and the Iraqi prime minister publicly announced that he would pursue withdrawal.

According to Reuters on the 10th (local time), Iraqi Prime Minister Muhammad Shia al-Sudani argued in an interview with this media outlet in Baghdad the previous day, "There is a need to reorganize relations (with the United States)."


As long as the war continues in the Gaza Strip of Palestine, attacks on US bases by pro-Iranian militants in Iraq and retaliation by the US military are bound to be repeated, and if this continues, Iraq may also be drawn into this conflict.

Like Hamas, the Islamic Resistance, an Iraqi armed group supported by Iran, has been attacking local U.S. military bases with suicide drones and rockets under the pretext of U.S. support for Israel.

The problem is that, on the other hand, they are also members of the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), which started out as a coalition of Islamic Shia armed organizations and has now become a regular army.


Said Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, a Lebanese armed faction that has sided with Hamas and attacked Israel, emphasized in a speech on the 5th that the U.S. airstrike on Baghdad should pave the way for the final withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.

However, the U.S. Department of Defense reaffirmed its position on the 8th that it has no plans to withdraw U.S. troops stationed in Iraq, Reuters reported.

After this the word of Jehovah came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram; for I am your shield and your exceedingly great reward.” (Genesis 15:1)

We praise your name, our Lord Jesus Christ, the salvation of all nations.

Lord, at this time, we lift up the Iraqi people to You. As the war between Israel and Palestine expands across the world, Iraq is also at risk of being drawn into the conflict.

Lord, who is the shield of the Iraqi people, please give us infinite grace and protect the Iraqi people who are under the threat of war.

This people, who for thousands of years worshiped idols rather than the Lord, now wants to know the name of Jesus Christ and be born again by the Holy Spirit.

Please leave the father of lies, cover us with the precious blood of Jesus Christ, and renew Iraq as a nation that follows and praises only the Lord.

Just as the Lord renewed Abram and made him the father of an entire nation, please anoint the Iraqi people and raise them up into a nation that bears the fruit of life by spreading the love of Jesus Christ among all nations.

Please help this people, who are in fear and fear due to war, now live with only the Lord as their shield, and may the joy and peace of the Holy Spirit poured out abundantly by the Lord overflow among the Iraqi people.

Please help us become the Iraqi people who proclaim the glory of the resurrection of Jesus Christ among all nations only by the blood of Jesus Christ!
