Units of Hezbollah, the Lebanon-based Islamist terrorist organization, have been filmed transporting a US M1 Abrams battle tank, M113 armored personnel carriers and other US Army equipment, in a long convoy headed for a battle with Islamic State terrorists in Iraq, according to a post in the Long War Journal on Wednesday.

In the video, set to martial Arabic music, a long convoy of  flag-waving pickup trucks and troop and tank transporters, is seen headed down a desert road towards what the video’s authors said was a battle with IS forces in Iraq.

Hezbollah on Thursday morning fired a rocket-propelled grenade at an IDF patrol along the Lebanon border, killing at least two soldiers and wounding seven others, in an attack that Israel said would incur harsh retribution. The IDF has confirmed the names of the two dead soldiers, Cap. Yochai Kalangel, 25, and Sgt. Dor Haim Nini, 20.

In 2009, the US ruled that Kata’ib Hezbollah, as the unit is known in Arabic, was a terror group and a component part of a larger group, the Qods Force, which was “responsible for the deaths of hundreds of US and allied soldiers between 2004 and 2011.”
