Islamic Resistance Militias Pledge Support for Hezbollah in War Against Israel

Two elements of the Islamic Resistance in Iraq, an umbrella organization of Iran-backed Shia militias, have pledged support to Hezbollah so far in the event an all out war breaks out with Israel.

Spokesman for Kataib Sayyid al-Shuhada, Kadhim al-Fartusi, said that “if the presence of the Iraqi fighters is required in southern Lebanon, we will be the first confronting Zionist aggression,” according to the Iranian state media outlet IRNA.

Likewise, Secretary General of Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba, Akram Abbas al-Ka’abi, stated that “The Iraqi Resistance will stand with Hezbollah shoulder to shoulder against any Israeli attack on southern Lebanon.”
