Iraqi Parliament Votes to Expel US Troops

Sunday 5 January 2020

BERLIN (DW News) — The Iraqi parliament has voted to ask the government to end the agreement to host US troops in Iraq. The move would essentially oust US troops from Iraq.

The Baghdad government accused the US of violating its sovereignty by carrying out the airstrike on its soil.

Some 5,000 US troops are currently serving in different regions of Iraq. Washington sent troops there more than four years ago to help defeat the Islamic State (IS, ex ISIS or DAESH).
