The leader of the Iran-backed Shiite militia Kataib Hezbollah in Iraq threatened on Wednesday to retaliate against American bases if the United States intervened in the war between Hamas and Israel - as reported by "Times of Israel".

- Our rockets, drones, and special forces are ready to attack the American enemy at its bases and disrupt its interests, if it intervenes in this war - declared Ahmad "Abu Hussein" al-Hamidawi, the leader of Kataib Hezbollah.

He also threatened to launch missiles at Israeli targets.

Al-Hamidawi also calls on Iraqis to organize pro-Palestinian demonstrations and collect donations in support of Hamas' military campaign.

The death toll of the war is increasing

On October 7 in the early morning hours, Israel was unexpectedly attacked from the Gaza Strip by Palestinian Hamas. The attack resulted in the highest number of Israeli fatalities since 1973, when the Jewish state went to war with the Syrian-Egyptian coalition. Over the four-day duration of the ongoing conflict, approximately 1200 Israeli citizens and over 1300 Gaza Strip residents have been killed already.
