Mohammad Muhyi condemned the recent assassination of the top Iranian commander and a number of Iraqi resistance fighters in US strikes and stressed that the group is preparing to retaliate the US crimes.
He said forcing US forces out of the region is a priority, adding that forces of the resistance front have been spread across a vast region to counter the US troops.
On January 3, US assassination drones killed Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, commander of the IRGC’s Quds Force, and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), among others, after targeting their vehicles in Baghdad. The terror attack took place under the direction of US president Donald Trump, with the US Department of Defense taking responsibility for the strike.
Both commanders were admired by Muslim nations for eliminating the US-sponsored Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group in the region, particularly in Iraq and Syria.
Kata’ib Hezbollah or Hezbollah Brigades is a group that is part of the PMU.
