In Emergency Session, Iraq’s Parliament Votes To Expel US Military

The Iraqi parliament voted unanimously on Sunday to expel the U.S. military from the country after an American airstrike last week killed top Iranian military commander Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad, The Associated Press reports.

The resolution demanded an end to foreign military presence in the country, with the aim of forcing the U.S. to withdraw 5,000 troops.

The measure also calls for ending an agreement that allowed the U.S. to send troops to Iraq to help fight the Islamic State and demands the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops for the country.

Iraqi Prime Minister called the U.S. strike that killed the Iranian military leader “an act of aggression against Iraq. The attack came on the heels of a number of other incidents between the U.S. and Iranian-backed militants, ratcheted up tensions in the region as Iran threatened retaliation and Iraq protested the attack within its borders.
