New Clip By Pro-Hizbollah Group In Iraq

Iraqi militant group "The Righteous People Brigades" released a 2:41 minute clip depicting an IED attack on a US Bradley Fighting Vehicle in al-Abeidi area in Baghdad. The video showed an IED detonating underneath the vehicle, setting it alight. The group said the attack goes under the retaliatory operations targeting US and Iraqi forces. The clip bore no date.

"The Righteous People Brigades" is an Iraqi Shiite militant group thought to have strong ties with the Lebanese militant Hizbollah group. The group was allegedly formed by slain Hizbollah commander Imad Mughniyah, who was killed in Syria last February. It emerged in late 2006 and operates mainly in Baghdad and Southern Iraq. Videos of attacks against US forces by the group are regularly broadcasted on Hizbollah's al-Manar TV.
