United States To Sanction Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba And Asa’ib Ahl Al-Haq

Republican senator Ted Poe presented a bill to the US Congress on November 3 suggesting the US government to consider the Iraqi armed groups of Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba (Nujaba) and Asa’ib Ahl Al-Haq (AAH) as two proxies of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

The bill accused Nujaba and AAH of being armed and founded by the IRGC as well as trained by Hezbollah. The bill also accused AAH leader Qais Khazali of pledging allegiance to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and conducting attacks against the US troops in Iraq between 2006 and 2011.

Nujaba and AAH were also accused of deploying forces in Syria to support the Syrian government. Additionally, the bill says that the groups have violated human rights in Syria and Iraq.

“AAH and Nujaba deploy forces to Syria to fight on behalf of the Bashar al-Assad regime, including participating in the 2016 siege of Aleppo where the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights alleges pro-government Iraqi militia groups executed dozens of civilians,” the bill says.

The bill also noted that Nujaba formed “a unit tasked to liberate the Golan Heights from Israeli”. Nujaba was also accused of securing a land route for Hezbollah between Iran and Lebanon, although such a route is not possible right now because ISIS still occupies a notable part of the Syrian-Iraqi border.

The Congress referred the bill to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs as for now. If the bill is approved, the US president will have to sign an order to sanction both Nujaba and AHH groups and all persons related to these two groups within 90 days of the bill approval.

A main problem facing the bill is that Nujaba and AHH are both part of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), which is recognized by the Iraqi government as a part of the Iraqi Armed Forces. The PMU has also been the main force in the war on ISIS since 2014.

More about the PMU (this analysis was originally released on August 27, 2017):

AHH was formed back in 2006 by its current leader Qais al-Khazali in order to fight US troops in Iraq. Since 2006, the group had conducted dozens of attacks against the US Army in Iraq until its withdrawal in 2011. Later during 2014, AHH deployed some units to Syria and supported limited operations of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) around Damascus. AHH played a limited role in Syria.

Nujaba was formed in order to support the Syrian government in 2013. The group is led by Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi, and has over 10,000 fighters in Syria and Iraq.

Nujaba played a key role in breaking the al-Nusra Front (al-Qaeda branch in Syria) siege on Nubl and Al-Zahraa towns in the northern Aleppo countryside in February 2016. Later it played a key role during the battle for Aleppo city.

In November 2017, Nujaba led an attack on the last ISIS stronghold in Syria, al-Bukamal city, from inside the Iraqi territory, according to Iraqi sources.

Nuajaba and AHH will not likely be affected by any US sanctions, in reality such a move could boost the two groups popularity among the people of Iraq.

Nujaba members are in Syria:

      I agree, yet your comment inferred prejudice. I will clarify.

      In the 80s, when we first took the taliban under our umbrella, trained and outfitted them, called them Al Qaeda , in order they might kill Russian invaders, they were called as freedom fighters, as they actually were. This is fact as testified to by Hillary Clinton to congress.

      . Reagan called them the equivalent of our founding fathers. And the Taliban had a right to repel Russian invaders

      And now when the Taliban AKA al Qaeda we trained to kill Russians, when these people attacks our troops because we have invaded and destroyed their nations, while we ship out resources to our corporations, buy their puppet governments; we now call the defenders as terrorists, and the invaders as freedom fighters.

      And we are “exceptional” as promulgated by Obama, and we are fighting for freedum.

      the disconnect from logic and reason, is quite disturbing. Disconnect from rationality. Greed, prejudice, and patriotic or nationalistic mind washed stupidity, are a few forms of causation to point..Fluoride as well. Like it or not, it is a EPA designated class 4 developmental neurotoxin, that is proven to cause IQ damage in over 25 studies. Members of the EPA do not support water fluoridation. It causes cancer. Cognitive dissonance ensues. No respect for the herd, to see them poison their kids, because they are ignorant of critical thinking.

      The disconnect from rationality, is quite disturbing. It cannot just be fluoride. It is also a culture of ignorance, as defined by Asimov.

      So too are the western paid atheist and christian soldiers rampaging the middle east only but terrorists. Belief will call it what it needs. But fact just is. The dumb ass western soldiers who lack sifficient intelligence( fluoride anyone?) to get any other job in a shrinking job market, so they join the army. Or they like to hurt things, or they are still mindwashed to patriotism and nationalism. When nations are already a thing of the past.

      They learn to murder people. And then they go go “a murdering,“, so they can buy useless shit that is built to break, so they can buy more, pay into a ponzi scheme based mortgage, and the rich get richer playing their part in the global farce called called America.( globalists muscle)

      And the only way they can be “”so called free” ( leave the house tomorrow absent wallet, then tell me how free you are. ) ,is to go on a murdering. Most of them don’t know what they are buying into. And they get there and watch and participate in the murdering, in the murdering of women and children, and those men who fight back against our imperialism and invasion. And these good people are traumatized by the hate called war. And they call the horror of it PTSD.

      They are then thrown under the bus by the government whose first priority must be to pay the usury on the fraudulent debt called modern banking.

      How else after all, will you get money if they decide to withhold it. They will down grade you. All because we gave up money creation in the hands of our own government who could print our money, and we could pay it back to ourselves. Interest free. We gave it to private men, and profit motive, and that begat modern slavery. Most to ignorant, to understand how simple, and repellent, this scam really is.

      And how about the politicians they own. Science says, logic agrees, and patterns rarely lie , the fake journalists, and the corrupted courts who all work for the good side of inequality..

      An idiotology built around profit, greed, and envy. To expect integrity from 99% of politician is ludicrous. Because they are owned before you even vote for them. Have you ever wondered who tells you the name of the person you are told to vote for ? Who defines what you are allowed to like, promote , talk about even? That divided and conquered mind, calling each other names and hating each, totally out of touch with reality or critical thought, they are simply useful idiots. Rich own us.

      lol @ the herd.

      West clearly has no business affecting regime change, nor invading nations willy nilly. And anyone who hasn’t recognized the imperialism done in our name, has not had a brain movement in quite some years.

      It is an act of terrorism to invade another nation without cause. We have done that many times in the last 70 years, and yet people refuse to think it through.

      There is no more complete, and brutal, and unmerciful terrorism than that which is attached to the cause of globalism and its resultant imperialism and coercement of nations, with debt.. And that is just about ALL of it over the last 50 years.

      So sorry, I will not hate on Muslims, Jews, Americans, Canadians, for the actions of money power. I will however, fight prejudice and ignorance every-time I see it.

      Hating causes brain damage. Or the equivalent thereof.

        Without the bloodshed and the usury, I would gladly be called a globalist. Technology will allow it. But that would require the rich, to let go of power, and the good side of inequality.

        So, IMO, it will be fascism (END GAME INEQUALITY), with technology to control us. As like the globalists have admitted to openly.

          “In short, Really Existing Capitalist Democracy is very remote from the soaring rhetoric about democracy. But there is another version of democracy. Actually it’s the standard doctrine of progressive, contemporary democratic theory. So I’ll give some illustrative quotes from leading figures – incidentally not figures on the right. These are all good Woodrow Wilson-FDR-Kennedy liberals, mainstream ones in fact. So according to this version of democracy, “the public are ignorant and meddlesome outsiders. They have to be put in their place. Decisions must be in the hands of an intelligent minority of responsible men, who have to be protected from the trampling and roar of the bewildered herd”. “The herd has a function, as it’s called. They’re supposed to lend their weight every few years, to a choice among the responsible men. But apart from that, their function is to be “spectators, not participants in action” –

          and it’s for their own good. Because as the founder of liberal political science pointed out, we should not succumb to “democratic dogmatisms about people being the best judges of their own interest”. They’re not. We’re the best judges, so it would be irresponsible to let them make choices just as it would be irresponsible to let a three-year-old run into the street.

          Attitudes and opinions therefore have to be controlled for the benefit of those you are controlling. It’s necessary to “regiment their minds”. It’s necessary also to discipline the institutions responsible for the “indoctrination of the young.” All quotes, incidentally. And if we can do this, we might be able to get back to the good old days when “Truman had been able to govern the country with the cooperation of a relatively small number of Wall Street lawyers and bankers.”
          Noam Chomsky

  • Serious

    What about proclaming the US government a terrorist organization and a proxy-israeli toy ?

    You must understand that USA is doing what they do to others. They just don’t want other to do what they are doing.

  • goingbrokes

    “…the groups have violated human rights in Iraq and Syria…” yeah right, they’ve killed innocent Daesh fighters without permission from the west.
