Widespread anger persists among the masses in both Iran and Iraq since the killing of Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani in a US airstrike in Baghdad on December 3.

The death of the top commander has fanned fears of a major conflict in the Middle East, with Iran promising "harsh revenge".

SAMAA TV's anchorperson Ali Haider invited Rashid Naqvi, a professor at the Tehran University and an expert on Iranian politics, to speak on the matter on his show Awaz.

“It seems that the American forces will not be able to stay in Iraq any longer,” Naqvi said on the show.

The US airstrike was aimed at ending resistance in the region but the attempt failed, according to Naqvi. The people of Iran seek revenge for Soleimani’s killing.

“The US and its allies were not expecting that the Iraqi parliament would demand an end to security agreement with Washington," Naqvi said, adding that neither were they expecting the 'US Murdabad' and 'Israel Murdabad' (Death to US and Israel) chants in the parliament.

He said the people were asking the US forces to just leave the region.
