(ConservativePeak.com)- Militia groups from Iran say they have active cells that are operating in various cities within the United States.
According to some chatrooms that these groups use, the militia groups have set up show in Washington, D.C., as well as some other cities in the country.
One of these chatrooms, called Kawtheryoon Electronic Team is set up on the social media app Telegram. It is often used by supporters of Iranian-backed militia groups and the groups themselves.
A recent post on the message board said Iranian “resistance cells are rooted even in America and its capital, according to a Fox News report. The Middle East Media Research Institute, an organization that tracks various radical groups across the world, captured the posting in English from the network.
Additionally, the group claims that other terror factions that are associated with the country of Iran are now growing stronger. They’re attracting larger support than they ever have in the past, they say.
The Telegram group was demanding that the U.S. withdrew the remaining troops that it still has stationed in Iraq and other parts of the Middle East. The post was accompanied by a photo that showed three lines of caskets carrying American soldiers.
The post read:
“A message to the American army and the Zionist army … Know that the axis of resistance is not only in the Middle East, but is all over the world. The axis of resistance today is stronger than before. Resistance cells are rooted in America and its capital, O American enemy, you must withdraw from Iraq, but from the entire Middle East.
“Because if you withdraw, you will not surrender, neither in the Middle East nor even in your home country, the United States of America … And you, the Zionist enemy, I will summarize for you in words only the horror of the south, which is stronger than before, and we have thousands of men like Imad Mughniyeh.
“Do not think that you and the Americans, by killing Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, will survive the torment of the resistance. We lie in wait for you evil and the next thing is worse.”
Is this threat serious? Or, it is just more words and propaganda coming from people online who back the Iran militia groups? That’s uncertain at this point.
It does come at a time, though, as President Joe Biden’s administration is trying to engage directly with Iran again in hopes of coming to a new agreement surrounding Iran’s nuclear production. For now, those direct talks have been put on hold, despite a strong effort from the European Union to set up a get together.
In the meantime, Iran continues to sponsor terroristic activities. The State Department has called on Iran to stop doing so, but they have shown no signs that they will back down from ongoing operations in Lebanon, Iraq, Syria and Yemen, among other locations throughout the
