“In the event of any war against Hezbollah, the movement is not going to be alone,” Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba spokesman Hashim al-Mousawi told Iran’s Tasnim news agency on Friday, according to a report by  Press TV ,   which is affiliated with Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting,  IRIB.

Iraq’s Hezbollah is usually referred to as”Nujaba”, which  is part of  the  Iranian backed  militia , Hashd al-Sha’abi . Like Hezbollah of Lebanon  Hashd al-Sha’abi  members are predominantly  Shiites.

In the event of an attack on Lebanon’s Hezbollah, “all, including Nujaba, will be standing by its side,” Mousawi said.

Israel has recently launched an operation to destroy what it claims tunnels dug by Hezbollah into its northern border . Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu  warned that Hezbollah would be dealt “unimaginable blows” if it confronted the operation.
