On February 28, the Kawtheryoon Electronic Team, a Telegram channel affiliated with Iran-backed armed groups in Iraq, warned the US that its troops won’t be safe in the Middle East or inside the US itself if they do not withdraw from Iraq.
In a Telegram post, the channel claimed that the Axis of Resistance – a term used to refer to Iran and its allies – has active cells inside the US, including in Washington, DC.
“Resistance cells are rooted even in America and its capital,” the Kawtheryoon Electronic Team said in the post. “O American enemy, you must withdraw not only from Iraq, but from the entire Middle East.”
The post also warned Israel that the Axis of Resistance has “thousands of men” who can rise to replace Imad Mughniyeh, Hezbollah’s top military leader who was assassinated in the Syrian capital, Damascus, in 2008.
A heavily edited photo showing several coffins covered with US flags and a number of rockets falling on Israel was attached to the post.
The Kawtheryoon Electronic Team concluded their post with a message to the US and Israel, saying that the Axis of Resistance will deal painful blows upon each, and that the killing of Iran’s Quds Force Commander Qassem Soleimani and Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units Deputy-Commander Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis will not help them to escape the “torment” that awaits them.
Pro-Iranian forces have been attacking US troops in Iraq for more than a year now. These attacks, which are meant to push the US out of the country, will not likely stop anytime soon.
