British-Palestinian journalist Abdel Bari Atwan said in a December 29, 2019 interview on Mayadeen TV (Lebanon) that America has “opened the gates of Hell” by carrying out the recent airstrike against Iran-backed militias in Iraq. He said that the recent Iraqi militia rocket attack against the American K-1 base in Kirkuk that killed an American civilian contractor is just an example of what the militias in Iraq are capable of, and he warned that America is going to miss the days of ISIS and of the pre-2011 Iraqi resistance. Urging the Iraqi people to support the new Iraqi resistance in order to drive out the Americans, Atwan said that the countdown has begun until President Trump withdraws American troops from Iraq. He also said that the proxy war between the U.S. and Iran has begun, and he added that American bases throughout the Middle East will become targets in this proxy war.
