According to anonymous sources, the head of Iran’s Quds Force told Iraqi Shia militias to pause attacks on US troops following the killing of 3 Americans in Syria.

This came after over 165 Iran-backed attacks on US assets since October.

“The Iranians learned their lesson from the liquidation of Soleimani and did not want this to be repeated,” a senior Iraqi security source said.

The Pentagon has not reported attacks since February 4. Sources said Quds Force chief Esmail Qaani warned Iraqi militia leaders in late January that further US bloodshed risked heavy retaliation.

He reportedly feared being killed like his predecessor Qasem Soleimani.

Most militias agreed to stop attacks, but Kataib Hezbollah, which was directly targeted in the Soleimani strike, remained defiant.

The US still conducted operations, striking Kataib Hezbollah members in Baghdad in February.

While Qaani urged restraint to avoid US strikes, his leadership has been less formidable than Soleimani’s, and he failed to generate fervent support for Iranian proxy operations against America.
