Iraq’s Kataib Hezbollah Pledges Ongoing Struggle Against the US

On Wednesday, the US conducted airstrikes against Kataib Hezbollah, an Iranian-backed group, as reported by Iran’s Fars News Agency. Kataib Hezbollah, a Shiite terrorist organization in Iraq, has vowed to persist in its fight until the US withdraws from Iraq.

Notably, the group was formerly led by Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, who was killed by the US in an airstrike in January 2020, along with Qasem Soleimani, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force.

Hezbollah’s Jihad Operations Continues Against US Army

Kataib Hezbollah has asserted, “Our jihad operations against the American invaders will persist until their last soldier departs from Iraq.”

Officials from Kataib Hezbollah criticized the US for its assaults on their bases. The group targeted the US on January 20 and has consistently expressed intentions to attack both US forces and Israel.

Years ago, Kataib Hezbollah set up a headquarters in Albukamal, Syria, situated on the Iraqi border. This location holds strategic importance as part of the Iranian network of groups, which includes Hezbollah in Lebanon.

The threats against US forces are not recent developments. Iranian-backed militias, including Kataib Hezbollah and Asaib Ahl al-Haq, have consistently aimed to expel the US presence from Iraq. These groups have also targeted US forces in Syria and issued threats against Israel.

The terrorist group affirms its commitment to combatting US troops in Iraq until a complete withdrawal is achieved, stating, “Our jihad operations against the American invaders will persist until their last soldier leaves.”
