In January 2021, Palestinian Ambassador to Iraq Dr. Ahmad 'Aql, also recounted the tale of a force coming from Iraq to liberate Palestine, for more information, see MEMRI TV clip no 8648.
Hadi Al-Ameri: "One of our principles – one of the things that we firmly believe in – is the cause of Jerusalem and Palestine. We cannot take the Palestinian cause lightly. There must be no normalization whatsoever with the Zionist entity. Those who think about normalization must take this thought with them to their graves. We believe that the [forces] that will liberate Palestine will set out from Iraq. The Zionist entity knows this as well. This is the reason for their hostile stance towards the Iraqi people. It is the result of this historical understanding that they believe in. therefore, we firmly believe that there is no room for normalization."
