Iraq's Hezbollah Brigades militia threatens US, Israel


An Iran-allied militia has continued its delirious remarks, pledging Thursday to avenge the United States and Israel for a deadly air raid on its terrorists in Syria.

Iraq's Hezbollah Brigades militia revealed that 22 of it terrorists has been killed in Sunday's air strike on a military base in eastern Syria.


Other reports said that more than 50 terrorists had been killed.

The Assad regime and the Iraqi militia blamed the attack on the US-led coalition fighting the Islamic State group in the area and Israel.


Hezbollah Brigades spokesman Jaafar al-Husseini insisted it "could only have been" the Americans or Israelis.

"When it becomes known who was responsible then there will be an appropriate response and the hand of the resistance will strike anywhere," he said during a memorial ceremony for the dead at a Baghdad mosque.
