BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 P.M.) – The Iraqi security forces confirmed on Monday, the release of members of Kataeb Hezbollah, who were arrested by the forces of the anti-terrorist agency a few days ago.
Citing Iraqi security sources, RT quoted them as saying: “the elements who were arrested last Friday night were released today.”
Last Friday, the Iraqi security forces raided the headquarters of Kataeb Hezbollah in Baghdad; this resulted in the arrest of 14 members.
The security operation was carried out in response to several Katyusha rocket attacks on the Baghdad Airport and a number of other installations.
While Kataeb Hezbollah has not claimed responsibility for these attacks, the Iraqi security forces reportedly tracked the launching points to the group’s positions.
