He stressed, “We, as activists, would like to show that all of our movement is peaceful, and if some unacceptable behavior occurred in it, it was rejected by the majority of the demonstrators.”

“We came today and we are part of many segments that participated in the peaceful movement, hoping to transfer our legitimate demands to the United Nations Secretary-General, demanding that government officials responsible for acts of violence, repression and killings be referred to international courts for violating international human rights instruments,” al-Rikabi said.

Al-Rikabi called for “pressure on the Iraqi government to expedite the implementation of the legitimate demands of the demonstrators and commitment to constitutional terms, and the intervention of the international organization to find a solution to reduce tension and establish civil peace and stability in all of Iraq.” is over

Today, the US Congress votes on an important military decision on Iraq

Time: 1/30/2020 11:54am

International: The Euphrates News} The US House of Representatives {Congress} votes today, Thursday, on a draft resolution that would end the mandate to use force in Iraq, which was approved in 2002 to give the legislative mandate to the United States to launch the Iraq war in 2003.

In his Twitter tweet, US President Donald Trump urged members of the House of Representatives to “vote with their hearts” on that legislation, adding that the United States is reducing its presence in Iraq until the number of its soldiers there has reached only five thousand.

On the other hand, Trump threatened that he would use the veto against any legislation supported by the Democrats that would restrict his military options against Iran.

In separate statements to the White House, sources said that the president may veto both decisions related to ending the 2002 law on the use of force in Iraq and the law restricting military options against Iran.

The decision to use force in Iraq gives the president broad powers and freedom to act in response to any threats inside Iraq and the threats that Iran makes against the United States and its allies in the region through its hubs in Iraq.

The US administration had justified the beginning of this month of its use of a drone to target Qasim Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis in Baghdad as coming within the mandate approved in 2002 and confirmed that canceling that mandate will “strengthen the enemies” of the United States. is over
