Iranian-backed Hezbollah after Qassem Soleimani’s deathto stepped in to lead the Iraqi militia

Baghdad: Shortly after Major General Qassem Soleimani was killed in an American Iraqi drone attack, Tehran-backed Lebanese organization Hezbollah met urgently with Iraqi militia leaders in an effort to unite them to face the death of a powerful mentor. The huge gap that remains, Reuters told of two sources that were familiar with the meeting.

According to sources, the meetings focused on coordinating the political efforts of the often turbulent militia of Iraq. In the January 3 attack on Baghdad airport, the militias lost not only Soleimani, but also the united Iraqi paramilitary commander Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis.

Two other sources of the Pro-Iranian Regional Alliance, although they provided few details, also confirmed that Hezbollah, a United States-sanctioned organization as a terrorist organization, has intervened to fill what Solemani left behind to lead the militia blank. All sources in this article are anonymous to address sensitive political activities that are rarely involved in public. Iraq and

Iran did not respond to a request for comment or to a militia spokesperson.
