Iraqi Terror Group: 'We Will Join the War Between Israel and Hezbollah'

The Iraqi terror organization Kata’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada’ (Master of Martyrs Battalions, KSS) announced on Sunday, June 23, that the Iraqi “resistance” groups would join the militant force if a war broke out between Hezbollah and Israel.

Sheikh Kazim al-Fartousi, a spokesman for the organization, stated that the current war against Israel in Gaza and Lebanon is that of one axis, and Iraq is part of that axis. “The Iraqi organizations are taking part in this war, we are actively in the fighting, and we don’t need to enter the war, since we are part of it,” he stated.

al-Fartousi added: “The Iraqi organizations attack the Zionist entity almost daily, in various ways, since we support Palestine in its war and Hezbollah in its war. If the government of the usurping Zionist entity does something crazy with Hezbollah in Lebanon, there will be a big cemetery for this entity, and everyone will partake in burying it.”

The Kata'ib Sayyid al-Shuhada’, which works directly with Iran’s IRGC, has thousands of fighters. Meanwhile, thousands of fighters from other Iran-backed groups in the Middle East are ready to come to Lebanon to join the militant Hezbollah group in its battle with Israel if the simmering conflict escalates into a full-blown war, officials with Iran-backed factions and analysts say.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said in a speech on Wednesday that militant leaders from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and other countries have previously offered to send tens of thousands of fighters to help Hezbollah, but he said the group already has more than 100,000 fighters. “We told them, thank you, but we are overwhelmed by the numbers we have,” Nasrallah said.

“Our Heavenly Father, we pray that You dismantle the terror groups that are coming together against Israel, and we ask that a full-scale war does not erupt. In Yeshua’s name, we pray for peace to be established and maintained on the land You have given us. We pray for wisdom and discernment in stewarding it and everything else You have generously given us, properly. Thank You for Your continual protection during the ongoing war.”
