Iraqi Hezbollah Warns to Fight against Israel in Any Possible War on Lebanese Hezbollah


Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi, the leader of Hezbollah al-Nujaba, a major Iraqi Shiite resistance movement fighting the ISIL, announced that it will help the Lebanese resistance group, Hezbollah, in case of an attack by Israel.

“We will be a part of the defense system against the Zionist regime in case of any possible attack by Israel against Hezbollah,” al-Kaabi said in an interview with the Lebanon-based Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news channel on Sunday.

“Seyed Hassan Nasrallah (Hezbollah leader) has also clearly declared that the entire resistance front will enter the scene with full preparedness in any possible future war,” he added.

His remarks came after Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari underlined on Thursday that any new war in the region will lead to the annihilation of the Zionist regime.

“It is a proven claim that today we say any new war will lead to the eradication of the Zionist regime. They have seen a part of the resistance front’s power during the 33-day and 22-day wars and today that the great resistance front has been formed, this word has been proven,” General Jafari told reporters in a press conference in Tehran.

“The fate of the resistance front is interwoven and they all stand united and if Israel attacks a part of it, the other component of the front will help it (the attacked part),” he added.

General Jafari warned that Lebanon is Israel’s first target, and said therefore the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance group should be armed against it to maintain security in Lebanon.

“This issue is not negotiable and the entire Lebanese nation, except a number of little puppet groups, support Hezbollah’s weapon,” he added.
