O Kataib Hezbollá suspende ataques às forças dos EUAattacks on U.S. forces

By Jordi Bou

January 31, 2024 - A milícia iraquiana alinhada com o Irão é suspeita de lançar o ataque com drone que matou três soldados dos EUA na Jordânia a 28 de janeiro.

Kataib Hezbollah is the most powerful faction in the Islamic Resistance in Iraq, the umbrella group of Shia armed groups that have claimed over 170 attacks on U.S. forces since the Gaza war began.

Kataib Hezbollah Secretary-General Abu Hussein al-Hamidawi said in a statement on Tuesday: “As we announce the suspension of military and security operations against the occupation forces – in order to prevent embarrassment of the Iraqi government – we will continue to defend our people in Gaza in other ways.”

Three U.S. troops were killed in a drone attack near the Jordan-Syria border on Jan 28 that the Pentagon said bore the “footprints” of Kataib Hezbollah.

The U.S. has vowed to respond to the attack.
