Future Israel War Could Draw Iran, Iraq Fighters

Hezbollah leader Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah said Friday a future war waged by Israel against Syria or Lebanon could draw thousands of fighters from countries including Iran and Iraq.
His comments indicate that the same array of Iranian-backed Shia militias —but not countries— currently fighting in Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad could take part in any future military conflict with the US-backed occupying power.
Tensions have risen between Hezbollah and its longtime foe Israel in recent months since Donald Trump became US president with his tough talk against Iran. Israel’s Air Force chief said his country would use all its power in any new war with Hezbollah.
“The Israeli enemy must know that if an Israeli war is launched against Syria or Lebanon, it is not known that the fighting will remain Lebanese-Israeli, or Syrian-Israeli,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech, Reuters reported.
“This doesn’t mean there are states that might intervene directly. But this could open the way for thousands, even hundreds of thousands of fighters from all over the Arab and Islamic world to participate —from Iraq, Yemen, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan.”
