More Americans Killed for Trump's Foolishness"US troops must leave Iraq immediately," Khazali stated, and warned, "If they fail to meet the deadline, they are regarded as occupying forces, and will be treated accordingly."

"We tell American [people] that stupid [President Donald] Trump will have more Americans killed and injured," the popular forces' leader warned.

"The US' porpuse in Iraq is to intervene in the Arab country's internal affairs, not to fight against Daesh (ISIL or ISIS)," he stated.

The United States sanctioned Asaib Ahl al-Haq group on Friday, claiming it was an Iranian proxy.
