Ayatollah Sistani condemns US attack on Hashd al-Shabi

TEHRAN, Dec. 30 (MNA) –Top Iraqi Shia cleric Ayatollah Ali Sistani condemned the US Monday airstrikes that hit several bases of Hashd al-Shabi and martyred at least 25 people, demanding respect for Iraq’s sovereignty.

The “illegal practices carried out by some sides” must not be used as a reason to violate Iraq’s sovereignty, his office said in a statement.

“The Iraqi authorities alone are entitled to deal with these practices and take the necessary measures to prevent them. They are called upon do so and to ensure Iraq does not become a field for settling regional and international scores and that others do not interfere in its internal affairs,” Sistani said.
