United States -ALSHARQIYA January 14: Twitter closed, on Wednesday, the account known as "Abu Ali Al-Askari," the spokesman for the Kataib Hezbollah militia in Iraq, after a tweet in which it offered to help the "American liberals."
Al-Askari, who publishes militia positions and is known for his continuous media attacks on Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi, offered to assist the militia by providing advice and "direct and indirect training" to the American "liberation movements".
Shortly after, the posts disappeared from Al Askari's account and instead a message appeared saying that the account was disabled for violating Twitter's publishing rules.
In a previous tweet, Al-Askari threatened Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi to "cut off his ears like goats," and said that "Iranian visits and US intelligence will not protect Al-Kazemi."
Al-Askari's name came to prominence due to his militant tweets and the address he bears as the "security official" of Kataib Hezbollah, which is known for its secrecy and its leaders' distancing from the media.
