BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:16 A.M.) – Jafar al-Hosseini, a spokesman and senior commander of Iraq’s Kata’ib Hezbollah militia group, has said that it will target US forces after ISIS are defeated if they do not leave Iraq.

“If the US forces refrain from leaving the Iraqi territories after annihilation of the ISIL terrorist group, the Islamic resistance of Iraq will target them,” al-Hosseini told the Islamic republic news agency on Tuesday.

He then went onto highlight how the US has protected and supported ISIS.

His remarks came after a senior Popular Mobilization Units commander disclosed that the US troops have helped ISIS chief commander Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi escape the western part of the city of Mosul in Northern Iraq, Fars News reported.

“The US forces have paved the way for ISIL [ISIS] leader (Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi) to flee from Western Mosul to al-Qayravan region,” the Arabic-language al-Sumeria TV quoted Javad al-Tayebavi as saying earlier this month.

“Our intelligence unit has confirmed that al-Baghdadi is moving between al-Qayravan and al-Hazar region in Southern Mosul,” he added.

Meanwhile, Kata’ib Hezbollah created a unit with the aim of liberating the occupied Golan Heights from Israel and return its sovereignty back to Syria, as reported by Al-Masdar News.

“After recent victories (in Syria), we have established the Golan Liberation Brigade,” al-Moussavi, the Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba movement’s spokesman, said at a press conference, as quoted by the Tasnim News Agency.

He added that “if the Syrian government requests, we are ready to take actions to liberate Golan.”

I admire their keen ethusiastic optimism, but maybe finish Daesh off first before publishing next-cab-off-the-ranks plans?

Also target Peshmerga if they dare try to steal land.

“the US troops have helped ISIS chief commander Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi escape the western part of the city of Mosul in Northern Iraq, Fars News reported” =>I believe as much anything from FARS about USA as I believe anything from Julian Röpcke/Bild about Syria. So… Iraqi HB = Iranian proxy… Well, it went faster than Hudaibiyah treaty! Well, now US militaries are pussies, you will see, they’ll totally wipe out the US-Army for sure, hey they barely can just send 2 jet-fighters a day and they’re retiring A-10, fore sure, USA don’t stand a chance… Now I don’t really get… Read more »

Well, I’ve got some good news for this militia : as it seems al-Abadi likes the US, gal.Mattis said US troops do not intend to leave Iraq when IS is defeated.
Kata’ib Hezbollah will have great fun! As they consider going after the US militaries but also trying to have Syria re-occupy Golan Heights, they really can expect some serious Pyrrhic victory, as Nusrallah did in 2006, thus, I doubt there would be some UNSC resolution this time, so we’re more likely to see that net Nusrallah’s victory will be of the kind Pyrrhus predicted his nex one would be.
