The Iraqi Hezbollah reaches 20 km in Syria

Shafaq News / The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported, on Tuesday, that the “Kata’ib Hezbollah " brigades deployed in a depth of twenty kilometers in the eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor in Syria.

The observatory said that the Iraqi Hezbollah deployed troops in Al-Mayadeen desert in the eastern countryside of Deir Ez-Zor.

Groups of the Iraqi Hezbollah militiamen in military vehicles have deployed in Al-Khour and Al-Tayarat areas nearly 20 km into Al-Mayadeen desert.

 

The term "Hezbollah" is related to the Lebanese Hezbollah organization, but the Iraqi Hezbollah organization was formed separately after more than two decades.

Kata'ib Hezbollah or Hezbollah Brigades is an Iraqi Shia paramilitary group which is part of Al-Hashd Al-Shaabi that is supported by Iran. It has been active in the Iraqi Civil War and the Syrian Civil War.

The Hezbollah Brigades describe itself as a “Islamic jihadi formation." According to its official website, the brigades believe that Wilayat al-Faqih is the best way to "achieve the rule of Islam in the absence of the Mahdi, the twelfth imam according to the Shiite beliefs.

 

The United States accuses this armed faction of being responsible for a number of missile attacks against its forces in Iraq. On December 23, 2019, American aircraft launched massive raids on brigade locations in the eastern Anbar region, killing and wounding dozens of its members.
