Terrorist group that claims it killed two Americans warns US troops of another attack
An Iranian-backed insurgency group has formed in Iraq- and they’re threatening US assets in the region.
Known as the “League of Revolutionaries,” the group, which claims to be responsible for the rocket attack at Camp Taji, was the “smallest amount of force the group could use.”
The attack killed two Americans and one Briton.
According to the Long War Journal, the group also claimed to possess “long range weapons that could perish you in the land of your spoiled child, Israel.”
While the “League of the Revolutionaries” is likely a front group for other, more established Iranian proxies in Iraq, operating under a different brand name allows plausible deniability.
The organization’s logo, however, somewhat gives its origins away- an uninspiring usage of a clenched fist, the globe and an AK-type firearm, the latter items being found on the Hezbollah flag and the logo of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
In all likelihood, it would appear the organization is just another proxy group in Iran’s dedicated push for hybrid warfare.
The IRGC made news in 2006 and 2007 after they kidnapped both Americans and Britons, respectively.
