Iran has formed a “Golan Liberation Army” with the aim of removing Israel from the Golan Heights, reports Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
“This army has been trained and has detailed plans. If the Syria regime asks us to, we are ready to act to liberate the Golan (from Israel) along with our allies,” Hashem Al-Mousawi of the Iranian-sponsored Iraqi Shiite militia Al-Nujaba told Iran’s Tasnim News Agency, according to tthe Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI.
MEMRI said Mousawi’s militia will not permit foreign forces to remain in Mosul. The Iraqi government was under pressure from the U.S. to prevent the Shiite Popular Mobilization Units militia from entering Sunni cities when ISIS is chased out.
Mousawi claimed the U.S. had demanded the appointment of a civilian governor in Mosul but was rejected.
And he accused Saudi Arabia and the U.S. of being responsible for ISIS actions.
Mousawi, on the issue of the new army, explained: “After the recent victories, we created the Golan Liberation Army. This army has been trained and has detailed plans. If the Syria regime asks us to, we are ready to act to liberate the Golan [from Israel] along with our allies. We will not allow Arab and Islamic countries to be smaller in size than Israel.”
He said the Golan Army comprises special forces who have received training and equipment.
“They have not [yet] entered any war [against Israel] and have been busy only with ending regional wars. There is a need for authorization from the Syrian government so that the Golan Army can be present there [in the Golan].
“Regarding the Golan Army, we are part of the PMU, and before that we were part of the resistance [axis]. So long as there is a threat in the region, we will not lay down our weapons.
Mousawi said Israel is “fundamentally” responsible for Iraq’s “destruction.”
“That regime took steps to destroy our infrastructure and scientists. Whether Iraq is on Trump’s list or not, we consider [the U.S.] a supporter of regional terrorism.”
According to MEMRI, he also warned Turkey to get out of Bashiqa in northern Iraq or face military action.
