Iranian terrorist groups claim to have active cells of operatives stationed in Washington, D.C., and other U.S. cities.
Kawtheryoon Electronic Team, a Telegram network used by Iranian militia groups and supporters, said in a recent post that Iranian “resistance cells are rooted even in America and its capital.” The Middle East Media Research Institute, which tracks radical groups, captured the post.
The militia group also claims that terror factions associated with Iran are growing stronger and attracting more support than ever before. The group demanded that the United States withdraw all of its troops from Iraq and the Middle East. The post also showed pictures of caskets with American soldiers inside them.
The threat comes after the Biden administration is actively trying to work with Iran in creating a revamped nuclear accord. Despite these efforts, Iran continues to sponsor terrorism.
The State Department has called on Iran to stop its terror operations, but Tehran shows no signs of backing down from its active operations in Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, and other Middle Eastern hotspots.
It has also continued to support strikes on U.S. personnel stationed in Iraq. The group was likely responsible for the Wednesday rocket attack on an Iraqi air base that houses American troops.
The militant group has also threatened Israel and promised reprisals for the U.S. attack on Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in a drone strike authorized by former President Donald Trump.
