Akram al-Kaabi, the secretary general of Iraq’s Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba movement which is part of the Popular Mobilization Forces fighting in Syria, said on Tuesday during a visit to Beirut that his forces will fight alongside Lebanon’s Hezbollah in case Israel attacks it.

Kaabi’s statements came after he visited the tomb of Hezbollah official Imad Mughniyah in Beirut’s southern suburb. Mughniyah was killed in 2008 in a car bomb attack in Damascus.

“We will be in one front with Hezbollah just like we have been in Iraq and Syria,” Kaabi, the leader of the Iranian-backed group said.
