Al-Mukhtar Army Vows to Hit Saudi Oil Installations, Ports in Case of War on Syria

al mukhtarLeader of Iraq’s Jaysh Al-Mukhtar (Al-Mukhtar army) Sheikh Wathiq Al-Battat vowed to target Saudi Arabia’s oil installations and ports if the US attacks Syria in a bid to harm the West’s economy by stopping the flow of crude to the western countries.
“We will cut the West’s economic artery in Saudi Arabia by attacking Saudi ports and oil installations …,” Sheikh Al-Battat told FNA in Baghdad on Wednesday.
He warned that attacking Syria will be the starting point for the end of Saudi Arabia because the Al-Saud regime is the main party which has encouraged and masterminded war plans against Syria.
Sheikh Al-Battat pointed to the Al-Saud’s support for terrorists in Syria, and said, “… the Saudi Royal family is trying to stir instability and insecurity in some countries by interfering in their internal affairs …”
Sheikh al-Battat likened Saudi Arabia to a glass-house whose owners attack their neighbors with stones, and vowed that the Al-Saud family will not be immune from Al-Mukhtar’s attacks and operations.
In similar remarks, Sheikh al-Battat also vowed last week to target Washington’s interests in Iraq and the Persian Gulf region by thousands of martyrdom-seeking (suicide) operations if the US attacks Syria.
Sheikh Al-Battat told FNA that his group has “23,000 fully-trained and equipped martyrdom-seeking forces who can blow the US interests in Iraq and the Persian Gulf at any time if the US commits such a stupid act”.
Sheikh Al-Battat warned against any adventurism against the Syrian nation, and reiterated that the US will not be immune from the martyrdom-seeking operations of his warriors.
He saw the US and Israel as the main losers of any possible military strike on Syria, and said, “Taking into account the Islamic and Arab awakening movements as well as the (regional) nations’ transparent stance on their confrontation against any possible US military strike on Syria, the United States and the Zionist regime will be definitely defeated” if they open war on Syria.
The call for military action against Syria intensified after foreign-backed opposition forces accused the Syrian government of launching a chemical attack on militant strongholds in the suburbs of Damascus on August 21.
Damascus has vehemently denied the accusations, saying the chemical attack was carried out by the militants themselves as a false flag operation.
