BASRA, Iraq: American claim of mutiny by Iraqi Shiite
has proved a lie as Force of Iraqi Shiite population
as well as Lebanese Hizbollah have announced practical
struggle against US-led coalition forces in Iraq while
spiritual leader of Southern Iraq’s Shiite Ayatullah
Muhammad Baqer Al-Hakim has issued a decree of Jehad
against invading forces, said a report.

According to the report, Ayatullah Al-Hakim who heads
major Iraqi Shiite opposition group - the Supreme
Assembly for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq (SAIRI)-
and has great political influence in Basra said in his
decree that Jehad against coalition forces which
committed aggression at the holy land of Iraq is
obligatory. He went on saying that no one could ever
support invading enemy.

A television report said SAIRI’s armed wing, the Badr
Brigade, which consists of 15,000 – 20,000 armed
troops is ready to join the battle in Southern Iraq
against allied forces.

In Lebanon, Hizbollah has also announced to take part
in Jehad against anti-Muslim invading forces in
central Iraq.

Meanwhile, Iraqi Foreign Minister Naji Sabri said
5,000 foreign volunteers have arrived in Baghdad to
fight against US-led forces.

Separately, the United States is sending thousands
more troops to secure the town of Nasiriya on the
vital supply route to the capital Baghdad.
