Qais Khazali, a leader of a Popular Mobilization Forces’ militia, recently visited the Lebanese borders with Israel. This is a dangerous development that falls within the framework of regional conflict. The leader of an Iraqi militia gets involved in an Iranian mission to spark a clash between Lebanon and Israel!
Both parties, the Lebanese Hezbollah and the Iraqi Popular Mobilization, are militias affiliated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards that are managed by General Qassem Soleimani. We are well-aware that Hassan Nasrallah and Qais Khazali do not have any real authority despite the vibrant speeches they deliver via television channels and that their militias are neither Lebanese nor Iraqi. Everyone knows that they’ve been fighting as part of Iran’s forces in Syria for more than three years now.
We are faced with a new phase of Lebanon’s political life as the Islamic Republic of Iran is now managing the country’s affairsAbdulrahman al-Rashed
