Kata'ib Hezbollah: Saudi Arabia and UAE are behind ISIS activity in Iraq

Resistance movement Kata’ib Hezbollah in Iraq confirmed on Sunday evening that Daesh (ISIS) is “directly run by the intelligence agencies of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).”

“Our condolences to the brothers in the Federal Police on the martyrdom of members following the treacherous criminal attack by Daesh terrorist gangs on a military post in Kirkuk,” said Abu Ali al-Askari, security official of Kata’ib Hezbollah.

“In Kirkuk and Nineveh, Peshmerga militants facilitate the movement and work of these criminal gangs,” he said, calling for “more pressure” on the Kurdish groups known as the Peshmerga to stop their alleged assistance to ISIS.

He stressed that the leaders of the Popular Mobilisation Units in Iraq particularly in the northern regions, should “take the lead in preserving the lives of the mujahedeen and be vigilant about US-Zionist plots.”

“In conclusion, we call on our brothers in Yemen to launch qualitative operation against the evil Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and strike their infrastructure, particularly in the sources of energy that are the main artery for providing criminal groups with money and weapons Peace be upon the righteous servants of God,” the representative of Kata’ib Hezbollah concluded.
