On May 10, 2023, various Iraqi Twitter accounts posted a video in which Qais Al-Khazali, the leader of the Iran-backed Iraqi Shi'ite militia Asaib Ahl Al-Haqq, claimed that in the seventh century, the Israeli Mossad had used a prostitute to orchestrate the assassination of the first Shi'ite Imam, Ali Ibn Abi Talib. He also said that "the Jews" assassinated Imam Ali's two sons, Hasan and Hussein. Khazali added that the Umayyads had been collaborators with the Jews, and that the modus operandi of Israeli-Jewish intelligence organizations is to use women and money to achieve their goals.
Qais Al-Khazali: "The Jews! The Jews! The Jews! They assassinated Hasan, the son of [Imam] Ali, and they did this by using a woman. The Umayyads were mere collaborators with the Jews. Then they assassinated Imam Hussein. It was the same perpetrators, only they used different people.
"There Is No Doubt That [A Prostitute] Worked For The Israeli Mossad Back Then, And Through Her, They Recruited [Imam Ali's Killer]"
"Qatam was a prostitute. What had been the modus operandi of the Israeli-Jewish intelligence agency? What do we know about them? How do they get their sources? It is either through money or through women. Right? In this case, it was a woman. There is no doubt that she worked for the Israeli Mossad back then, and through her, they recruited [Imam Ali's killer]. Abd Al-Satan Ibn Criminal [i.e. Abd Al-Rahman Ibn Mujlam]."
