Press Shia Agency – An official with Iraq’s Poplar Mobilization Forces said the anti-Zionist stances of the al-Nujaba Movement, a major Shi’ah resistance group in Iraq, has drawn enmity from the US.

Press Shia – According to the office of Iraq’s Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba (“The Movement of the Party of God’s Nobles”)  in Iran, Hadi al-Amiri, the Secretary-General of Iraq’s Badr Organization, referred to a plan by the United States’ Congress to place the al-Nujaba Movement on a list of terrorist organizations and consider the group, along with the Asaib Ahl al-Haqq, as proxies of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
 
 
al-Amiri said the al-Nujaba Movement has vowed to liberate the Golan Heights from Zionist occupation and that is why the enemies are angry.
 
 
He added that one must not be sad for this because nothing else can be expected from such an enemy.
 
 
The Zionist regime of Israel seized the Golan Heights from Syria during the 1967 Six-Day War and has continued to occupy two-thirds of the strategically-important territory ever since, in a move that has never been recognized by the international community.
 
 
The regime has built tens of illegal settlements in the area since its occupation and has used the region to carry out a number of military operations against the Syrian government.  
 
 
al-Nujaba, which has about 10,000 fighters, is a branch of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces.
 
 
The Iraqi volunteer force was formed in 2014, when the Daesh Takfiri terror group managed to make sweeping territorial gains in Iraq’s western and northern parts, helping the government forces regain their strength and speed up their counter-offensives.
