According to News i Agency’s International Group, the US State Department has set a reward of up to $ 3 million for providing information about the perpetrators of the US-led invasion of Iraq under a “reward for justice” program.
The announcement comes a day after three bomb blasts at a US military base in Baghdad.
“The loyal people of Iraq, the cowardly terrorists attack the US diplomatic facilities in Iraq and then take refuge among the civilians,” wrote the Twitter account of the Rewards for Justice program.
“The United States has set a $ 3 million reward for information leading to attacks on US diplomatic missions or attacks,” the statement added.
Iraqi groups have been targeting US terrorist strongholds since October 2019.
Since the beginning of this year, there have been 42 attacks on the US embassy in Baghdad, US military bases or convoys, AFP reported.
The attack took place on Wednesday with suicide drones. Hours earlier in the day, the Balad air base in Salah al-Din province was targeted by rockets.
AFP The attacks on Balad base have been so widespread that the Lockheed Martin arms company announced last month that it intended to leave Iraq amid concerns about the safety of its personnel.
Many Iraqi groups consider US forces occupying their country and demand their withdrawal from Iraqi territory.
In December 2009, two days after the US terrorist attack on the martyrdom of General Haj Qassem Soleimani, former commander of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, and Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, former deputy head of the Al-Hashd al-Shabi organization, the Iraqi parliament passed a resolution to withdraw foreign troops. It approved Iraqi territory and called for the withdrawal of American troops as soon as possible.
Iraqi groups have repeatedly called on their government to implement the parliament’s decision.
