On January 3, 2022, an animated video titled "Messages" was uploaded to the Telegram channel of Sabreen News, which is a media network associated with Iraqi militia Asai'b Ahl Al-Haq, commemorating the second anniversary of the assassination of IRGC Qods Force Commander General Qasem Soleimani and deputy PMU chief Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis. The video shows Soleimani and Al-Muhandis writing letters that are delivered by pigeons to civilians, as members of Iranian forces and Iraqi militias standing by with rocket launchers and drones.

Meanwhile, a meeting at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad about Arab normalization with Israel is shown between an American official, an Arab official wearing a headdress, and an ultra-orthodox Jew. A small drone suddenly flies into the room and interrupts the meeting by projecting a video of a speech in which Al-Muhandis promised to stop the U.S. and its Iraqi lackeys (see MEMRI TV Clip No. 7680) and a speech by Qais Al-Khazali, Secretary-General of Asai'b Ahl Al-Haq militia.

Later in the video, rockets and explosive drones are seen striking the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, a U.S. military convoy, and American military facilities, defense systems, and airstrips. The video ends with an injured American soldier crawling on an airstrip with hundreds of American coffins on it as an American transport plane takes off. During this scene, an excerpt can be heard from a speech in which Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah promised that America will leave the region humiliated and defeated (see MEMRI TV Clip No. 7700).

Onscreen text: "This film is dedicated to the souls of the martyred leaders and their companions, and to the martyrdom-seekers of the resistance all over the world."

U.S. Official: "What?"

Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis: "By Allah, with these young men and with this Hussein-like determination, we will stop America and all of its Iraqi lackeys, who are hiding in their offices."

Qais Al-Khazali: "You are in our country. You do not belong in this country. This behavior is impolite. Where are your satellites? Where are your listening devices? Where are your drones that fly over Baghdad? You are incapable of even defending yourselves, and you are looking for information about money? This is not in your best interest, Americans."

Hassan Nasrallah: "I am telling you that the Americans will leave our region humiliated, defeated, terrorized, and horrified, just as they had left before. The martyrdom-seekers who drove America out of our region in the past are still here, and there are many more of them."
