On December 17, 2021, a 17-second animated video was posted to the Kaf Telegram channel, which is affiliated with the Iraqi Hizbullah Brigades. The video depicts a giant Hizbullah Brigades fighter standing on a damaged U.S. flag, while American soldiers run away from him towards a U.S. military plane. A caption at the end of the video reads, "The Withdrawal of American Forces, December 31, 2011 [sic]," an apparent reference to threats by Iraqi militias that all American soldiers must leave Iraq by the end of 2021. The Telegram post read: "We have proven throughout the years that the endurance is for the owners of the land." For more from the Kaf Telegram channel, see MEMRI TV Clips No. 8451 and No. 8348.
