Iraq slams Bahraini FM for defending Israeli attack

Bahraini FM Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa says Israel exercised its right to ‘self-defense’ in striking Hashd al-Shaabi ammunition depots

Iraq condemned Bahraini Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa Thursday for defending Israel’s recent targeting of Hashd al-Shaabi, a largely Shia paramilitary force.

“The Foreign Ministry rejects and condemns the Bahraini foreign minister’s tweet about the recent attacks on Arab territories and the Popular Mobilization Forces by the Zionist enemy under the pretext of self-defense,” said the statement, referring to the English name for Hashd al-Shaabi.

It said Hashd al-Shaabi acts together with the country’s armed forces, police and peshmerga forces to fight against Daesh militants.

Khalifa said in a Twitter post that the Israeli attack on Hashd al-Shaabi’s installations “very clearly affirms the right of states to self-defense against any threat or aggression.”

“So one who strikes and destroys the piles of their ammunition is not to blame. That is self-defense,” he added.
