A senior U.S. diplomat assessed the threat against U.S. forces in Iraq as “significant”, adding: “we noted that Kataeb Hizbollah last week listed on their website the ceasefire declaration, saying it would abstain from attacking U.S. forces. We take these things with a grain of salt. We would of course welcome if Kataeb Hizbollah did not attack us, but we still see a significant threat to U.S. personnel and forces, military forces in Iraq and that persists”.
