Security risks represented by armed targeting by some Shiite factions that do not hesitate to threaten American interests in the daytime are not limited to the soldiers of the international coalition and their military vehicles, but also affect the Iraqis who work with the coalition regardless of their status, whether they are translators or others, What facilitates the implementation of these attacks are documents and personal information that could reach the influential people close to these factions, which led to the launch of demands to the government to protect these Iraqis, whom some call "agents" even after leaving their work.


Security expert Ahmed Al-Sharifi told Rudaw Media Network that "there is an escalation between Iran and the United States in Iraq, and therefore the armed factions loyal to Iran are affected by this escalation and launch campaigns against those whom it considers America's allies, and these are subject to targeting from these armed factions and they will be in the circle of targeting."

The attacks targeting the American forces and the forces and interests of other countries in the International Coalition escalated to an almost daily occurrence, after the Quds Force commander, Qassem Soleimani, and the deputy head of the Popular Mobilization Authority, Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, were killed on January 3, and two days after the operation, The Iraqi parliament voted by majority to end the foreign military presence on the country's territory, in a session attended by former Iraqi Prime Minister, Adel Abdul Mahdi.

And the security expert continued: "Just as we advise our children who belong to the armed factions, we advise our sons who work with the international coalition forces and the American forces, and they must be made aware of the dangers of what they are going through," indicating: "We need deterrence mechanisms to guarantee the rights of those who worked with the international coalition forces."

Recently, the United States hinted at closing its embassy in Baghdad following the escalation of attacks against it, before the Iraqi government announced that Washington would backtrack on this step, following the agreement of the two sides during the second round of the strategic dialogue between Washington and Baghdad, which was held at the White House at the end of last August. The US President, Donald Trump, and the Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, on the redeployment of US forces outside the country within three years.

 Al-Sharifi explained, "These Iraqis did not work within a framework outside the constitution, given that the international coalition forces worked to secure protection for the country and provide security and stability," stressing that the government is required to protect them from targeting.

According to a report published by The Washington Post, citing officials, "The US military provides personal information to the Iraqi security forces, to secure permission for translators to move around Iraq, but the Iranian-backed militias have infiltrated parts of the Iraqi security apparatus to the point that, in some cases, the information. Became accessible to groups that took up arms against the Americans and local support personnel. " 

Accounts close to the armed Shiite factions have previously published lists that they said contain personal information about Iraqis working at the headquarters of the International Coalition in Baghdad, including the names, addresses, identification numbers of Iraqi drivers, the model of their cars and their license plate numbers.

The newspaper's report included testimonies of seven translators who expressed their fear of these attacks, saying: "It will be an easy task to pursue us. They have all the information now, especially since this list is now available on the Internet." 

Last Saturday, hundreds of Iraqis demonstrated in Baghdad, demanding the exit of the American forces from the country, as the demonstrators who raised the flags of the Popular Mobilization Forces chanted slogans such as "America going out of Baghdad remains free" and "Your stay in Iraq is playing with fire", while they were standing near One of the entrances to the Green Zone, where the US embassy and the headquarters of the Iraqi government and parliament are located.

And in mid-October, the Iraqi factions loyal to Iran announced that they had agreed to stop attacking the US embassy in Baghdad on the condition that Washington announce the withdrawal of its forces at the end of this year.

Indeed, the United States reduced the number of its soldiers in the country to about three thousand because of the "victory" that was announced at the end of 2017 over ISIS militants and following the spread of the Corona pandemic.

The United States deployed thousands of troops in Iraq in 2014 to lead an international coalition fighting ISIS, which then swept over a third of the country's territory.

Iraq awaits the policy that the US president-elect, Joe Biden, will adopt towards Baghdad, while President Donald Trump's administration has previously threatened to close its embassy in Baghdad unless the attacks against it stop.
