Iranian-backed Kataib Hezbollah group issued a warning about imminent attacks on US bases by telling others to “stay clear of American bases by a distance not less 1,000m starting Sunday evening.”
The US said they have identified 52 Iranian sites, some “at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD” if Tehran strikes the US.
The Iranian-backed Kataib Hezbollah group was commanded by Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, who was also killed along with Qasem Soleimani, the top Iranian general, in the recent US strike.
