Ignorance and falsehoods by New York Times correspondents in the Middle East in one sentence

"In 2014, he wrote a provision incorporating Shiite volunteer fighters into the Iraqi armed forces, the so-called Iraqi Hezbollah, a reference to the Iranian-backed Shiite militia in Lebanon."  1) they conflate Iraqi Hizbullah with the Hashd forces.  2) they confuse Lebanese Hizbullah with Iraqi Hizbullah.  How can anyone rely on New York Times correspondents to learn about the world?  Really.
