Secretary of Expediency Council Mohsen Rezaei has met with Harakat al-Nujaba Islamic Resistance Secretary-General Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi on Sunday.
(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Harakat al-Nujaba Islamic Resistance Secretary-General Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi met and talked with Secretary of Expediency Council Mohsen Rezaei on Sunday.
The US seeks to establish a permanent military base in the city of Mosul, top Iraqi political figure Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi said, stressing the need for the presence of Iraqi voluntary forces in an operation to liberate the strategic northern city to thwart that plot.
Americans seek a permanent military base in Mosul, however, the Popular Mobilization Units’ involvement in the operation to recapture the city from the terrorist groups will stymie those US plans, Sheikh Kaabi, secretary general of Iraq’s al-Nujaba Movement, a major Shiite resistance group working in cooperation with the voluntary forces, known as Hashid al-Shaabi, said.
The visiting official pointed to the latest field developments in Syria stating “over the recent weeks, it was announced that terrorists have broken the siege in Aleppo, which happened only once though we immediately took control of it as the terrorists are under our fire again.”
Al-Kaabi underlined that terrorists in Aleppo have gained victory in media clarifying “armed militants and terrorists have failed in Aleppo but have gained victory in media by misleading public opinion.”
Nujaba SG deemed some Arab countries in the region as the reason behind growth of terrorism; “al-Nujaba intelligence surveillance center has taken hold of some documents revealing a direct connection between Al-Nusrah Front and Qatar.”
Later in his remarks, the official touched upon Iraqi issues and Mosul operation underlining “not only do we want to enter Mosul, but also we plan to take control of its center.”
He outlined Al-Hashd Al-Sha'abi’s participation in Mosul operation as vital and added that Americans want to establish a permanent military base in Mosul, a plan which can be foiled with intervention on the part of Al-Hashd Al-Sha'abi.”
Stating that the enemy seeks to weaken Al-Hashd Al-Sha'abi forces in Iraq, he stressed “they are after detaching Resistance groups from Al-Hashd Al-Sha'abi in which case, Al-Hashd will be weaker than a local police for it owes all its strength to the Resistance.”
Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi went on to extend his gratitude to the Islamic Republic of Iran and on top of it the Leader for their generous aids; “Islamic Resistance forces are indebted to Iranian commanders for their experience and skill in battlefields specially in ‘street fighting’,” he concluded.
