“We will Attack Your Military Bases,” Iranian-backed militia Warns U.S. as American Carrier Arrives in the Eastern Mediterranean

Oct 12, 2023

Kataib Hezbollah Threatens US

The Iranian-backed militia, Kataib Hezbollah, has told the United States not to intervene in the war between Israel and Hamas, warning that it will attack American military bases. The head of the militant group, Abu Hussein, released the statement hours after the US Navy carrier Gerald R. Ford docked in the Eastern Mediterranean to help Israel restore peace.

Hussein said Kataib Hezbollah fighters were ready to send multiple rockets to American military bases if they learned of US involvement in the ongoing war. Moreover, he threatened to direct missiles at Israel. Hussein is now calling on Iraqies to make donations to Hamas, a terror group that killed over 1,000 Israelis and took hostage about 140 people.

Badr Organization Threatens to Launch Attack on American Bases

Another Iranian-backed militant group, Badr Organization, also cautioned the US not to intervene on Monday. The group’s leader, Hadi Al-Amiri, said if American troops get involved in the current war, all US bases will become their targets.

The United States government has already sent more than 2,000 soldiers to Iraq and 900 to Syria in an effort to help local forces contain the two Islamic States.

US Central Commander Holds His Ground

Meanwhile, as the Iranian-backed terror groups continue to send threats, US Central Commander General Michael Kurilla says he will not allow any militant group to escalate or widen the ongoing Israel-Hamas war. Besides Gerald R. Ford, Kurilla said his team had five destroyers stand by, waiting to get in action if need be.

In Yemen, the Houthi Movement leader, whose fighters have engaged in a war with Saudi-led forces over the past eight years, has threatened that his organization will direct rockets and missiles at US military bases if American troops help Israel fight against Hamas.

Lebanon-based criminal group Hezbollah has already joined the war. On Monday, it was reported that its fighters fired several rockets towards Northern Israel. Further, an Iranian-backed criminal group sent rockets from Syria to various parts of Israel, forcing the Jewish State’s Defense Forces to respond with missiles. The IDF has so far sent thousands of soldiers to the Israel-Gaza border to prevent Hamas from invading Israel’s territory again.
