The so-called Iraqi Companions of the Cave group has issued a new threat to US forces in the region, warning that a hot winter awaits them, despite the holding of the temporary truce between the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) and Israel.
In a statement issued on Tuesday on social media and accompanied by a photo of American soldiers carrying wounded comrades, the group said that "this winter is unusually not cold." "Fire awaits you, our missiles and drones have the final say."
The statement came five weeks after daily missile and drone attacks against U.S. forces in Syria and Iraq.
These attacks are claimed by an alliance calling itself the Islamic Resistance in Iraq. It is the term used by the group of companions of the cave and a number of other armed factions in the country.
The United States provided military support and political cover to the Israeli occupation throughout its 48-day aggression on Gaza, which began on October 15, leaving about <>,<> martyrs, mostly women and children.
This unequivocal support has led to outrage in Arab and Muslim countries and prompted armed groups in Iraq and Syria to attack U.S. targets in the region.
The Islamic Resistance in Iraq has expressed solidarity with Gaza in the face of Israeli aggression and has launched numerous armed attacks on US military sites in Iraq and Syria.
Recently, the Islamic Resistance in Iraq published an infographic about 75 attacks on U.S. military sites in Syria and Iraq, as well as attacks on Israel.
She stressed that Israelis and Americans would not be safe, saying her fire was reaching them on land and sea. But it has stopped such attacks since Hamas and Israel reached a temporary truce last Friday.
For its part, the Iraqi Kataib Hezbollah issued a statement announcing a de-escalation against US military bases in the region until the temporary truce between Hamas and Israel ends, or there is renewed fighting between Israel and Hezbollah on the Lebanese border.
At the same time, this faction stressed that its struggle against the US forces occupying Iraq will not stop until the country is liberated, according to the statement.
