Iranian Fars News reported:
A spokesman for Hashd al-Shaabi (Iraqi popular forces) warned that the group will target the US positions around the world in retaliation for the assassination of two Iraqi and Iranian commanders.
Ali al-Hosseini, the spokesman of Hashd al-Shaabi in Northern Iraq, said that the US should know that a huge battle has started.
“We intend to target the US bases across the world and even in Tel Aviv, and we will take revenge from them,” he told the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news website on Sunday.
Al-Hosseini said that there are tens of thousands of martyrdom-seekers, including himself, who are ready for operations against the US targets anywhere.
