On Thursday, an Iranian-backed militia in Iraq threatened to attack United States forces in the country in vengeance for President Donald Trump recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

“The decision by Trump on Al-Quds (Jerusalem) makes it legitimate to strike the American forces in Iraq,” Al-Nojaba militia chief Akram al-Kaabi said in a statement.
