Hujjat al-Islam al-Khazali, the leader of Asa’ib Ahl al-Haqq movement, says Israeli and American spy ‎services are behind violent attacks in Iraq, and they include attacks on protesters and even the US embassy ‎in Baghdad.‎

RNA – Speaking to Qatar’s Al Jazeera TV, Hujjat al-Islam Qays al-Khazali said the Central Intelligence ‎Agency (CIA) of the US and Israel’s Mossad have formed a joint network that leads violent groups, and uses ‎security companies to kill Iraqi protesters.‎

‎“The US seeks to tarnish our image by accusing us of complicity in killing protesters. How on earth can we ‎kill our own people while we have lost our lives in the fight against Daesh because of them,” he asked.‎

Rather, Hujjat al-Islam al-Khazali added, it is the groups affiliated with the US that set fire to “our bases and ‎murdered our forces, but we did not take revenge, because those acts were aimed at moving the country ‎toward a civil war and tarnishing the image of the Popular Mobilization Forces.”‎

‎“We have information that indicates the US is seeking to create chaos in Iraq through its intelligence ‎apparatus and saboteurs inside the country and using its embassy,” he warned.‎

Hujjat al-Islam al-Khazali said the US embassy and its State Department are using their dominance over ‎social media and the potential of the US-based TV channel Alhurra to provoke riots in Iraq.‎

According to Press TV, he also warned against an Israeli plot to convince Washington to move Iraq toward destruction as part of its ‎political project.‎

‎“Even some attacks on the US embassy in Iraq have been carried out with the Israeli support,” Hujjat al-‎Islam al-Khazali said.‎

‎“Some of these attacks are orchestrated by the Israeli intelligence agencies, but another part is carried out ‎by a group that seeks to protest the US’ violation of red lines in Iraq.”‎

Why does US insist on taking Abdul-Mahdi down?‎

Elsewhere in his remarks, Hujjat al-Islam al-Khazali slammed Washington for “crossing the red lines” by ‎interfering in the internal affairs of Iraq, saying the US has in recent months strived to force Iraqi Prime ‎Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi into resignation.‎

‎“That’s because Abdul-Mahdi rejected a US request to enjoy half of the country’s oil reserves in return for ‎its reconstruction,” Hujjat al-Islam al-Khazali revealed.‎

‎“Trump had claimed he would seize the entire oil reserves of Iraq and use security firms to guarantee the ‎US presence in the Arab country. However, Abdul-Mahdi declined this request, and the Americans are ‎calling for his resignation after this stance, and his energy contract with China,” he added.‎
