By Staff, Agencies
The Secretary General of Iraqi Asaib Ahl al-Haq resistance movement, Sheikh Qais al-Khaazali, stressed that the Iraqi Resistance reserves the right to respond to ‘Israeli’ attacks which killed a number of Iraqi Resistance youths.
"A number of Iraqi resistance youths were killed by the ‘Israeli’ attacks, but we reserve the right to respond to ‘Israeli’ attacks", the Secretary General of the subdivision of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units [PMU], better known by Arabic name Hashd al-Shaabi, said.
Noting that the Zionist regime will not stop targeting Iraq due to religious and ideological factors, al-Khazaali noted that the Zionists consider Iraq as their first enemy and greatest threat.
He then reiterated that the Asaib Ahl al-Haq movement will stand against the Zionist enemy, emphasizing that the regime is the greatest enemy of the Arab and Muslim nations.
Additionally, he underscored that Iran was the first country to recognize the political process when all countries were conspiring against Iraq.
"Iran was the only country among the neighboring countries that supported Iraq during the Daesh [Arabic for ‘ISIS/ISIL’] attack,” al-Khazaali said.
Some are putting allegations on Iran, but they are silent towards the crimes of some Gulf countries, he criticized, stressing that Iraqi Resistance groups are part of the deterrence equation proposed by the Leader of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah, His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.
The Zionist regime has bombed Iraqi nuclear reactors and is responsible for all the bad things that are happening in this country, al-Khazaali said.
