A commander in Iraq's Hashed al-Shaabi military force called its fighters to be on alert Friday following a US strike that killed Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) commander Qassem Soleimani.

“All resistance fighters must be ready, as an upcoming conquest and a great victory await us,” said Qais al-Khazali, leader of the Asaib Ahl al-Haq Iran-backed Iraqi militia, in a handwritten note seen by AFP.
