Harakat al-Nujaba

Not yet designated terrorist by a Western country
Base of operations: Syria, Iraq

Background: Website

Harakat al-Nujaba (Movement of the Noble Ones; or more fully: Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba) is an Iraqi Shi'a militia organization that first came to light in 2013 and has deployed to both Syria and Iraq, the former as part of aiding Assad regime forces against rebels and the latter to fight the renewed Sunni Arab insurgency. Harakat al-Nujaba shows affinity with both Iran and Hezbollah. The boundaries with other Iranian-aligned militias in Iraq- namely Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq and Kata'ib Hezbollah- are in reality not so distinct here, as the leader himself has a known history in Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq. Harakat al-Nujaba has multiple military 'subdivisions' such as Liwa Ammar ibn Yasir (named after one of Imam Ali's closest companions), Liwa al-Hamad & Liwa al-Imam al-Hasan al-Mojtaba.
