Following statement by a strong Iraqi Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, calling for a “Million Man March,” by Iraqis to protest the presence US soldiers on Iraqi soil, thousands of Iraqis marched through the US Embassy in Iraq, thousands of individuals might be seen carrying signs that read “no, no to America” and “no, no to occupation” amid a sea of Iraqi flags.

Protesters could even be seen carrying posters with caricatures of US President Donald Trump

Following the US killing of Iran General Qassem Soleimani on January 3, there have been growing demands for US troops to go aways from the country, as many Iraqis believe killing someone without their permission on their soil may be a breach of the country’s sovereignty.

Iran responded to the US targeted killing by firing over a dozen ballistic missiles at US military bases in Iraq, leading some US troops to be treated for concussions despite denial of troop injury by Donald Trump.
