Peshmerga Leader: Hezbollah Deployed South of Kirkuk, Under Command of IRGC

A leader of the Kurdish peshmerga in Kurdistan region, Hussein Yazdan has stated that “a force of a thousand Lebanese Hezbollah, have joined in the past few days, the Popular Crowd in Taza, south of Kirkuk.” Yazdan added “Hezbollah gunmen who arrived in the area in question are threatening the city of Kirkuk and the Kurdistan region of Iraq in general.”

He continued that “their presence in that region is part of Iran’s plan to take control of Kirkuk and Mosul, and then access to the Syrian border by land to complete the Shiite crescent, which Tehran planned a long time ago.” The Hezbollah militants are said to be in ordinary Popular Crowd military attire as not to stand out.

“Hezbollah forces that entered the province of Kirkuk, constitute a major and serious danger to this province, they also pose a major risk to the Kurdistan region, especially that its presence in Kirkuk is part of Iran’s plan for military control of Kirkuk and Mosul and the opening of a land route for Iran to transfer weapons and soldiers to Syria and Lebanon, and thus complete the Shiite Crescent,” Mr. Yazdan claimed.

“Hezbollah forces stationed south of Kirkuk overseen by the leadership of a senior officer in the Iranian Quds Force of the Revolutionary Guards, a Agaa Akabbala, coupled with a panel of three other officers of the Qods Force with Hezbollah forces.”
