Baghdad, May 20, IRNA - The head of the executive council of the Islamic resistance group Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba said that the United States is looking for excuses to create insecurity in Iraq and the rest of region.

Nasr al-Shammari condemned American policies of making tensions and said that Washington is now pursuing a pretext to fuel unrest in the region and Iraq.

The Iraqi official also voiced al-Nujaba movement's readiness to respond to any hostile US action.

'Our battle with the United States will continue until the end of their occupation, as well as the destruction of the usurper regime (of Israel) in the region,' he said.
