Sadr applauds Hizbollah Brigades, seeks merger

Al-Sumaria News (Arabic) quoted Moqtada Sadr as saying that he blesses the work of the Hizbollah Brigades--one of the notorious IRGC backed special groups--and that he offered a merger between the group and his militias; "The strength of the Trend [Sadr's movement], so to speak, is yours."

Sadr also acknowledges that that the Brigades' mission is regional, and extends well beyond Iraq's borders, and implies that his offer was kinda declined; "I had wished for efforts to unite and that your work be dedicated to Iraq alone, but your [the Brigades'] senior commanders rejected that."
