Iraq’s President Barham Salih said unity between the army, the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), also known as Hashd al-Sha’abi, and Kurdish Peshmerga forces have enabled the country to defeat the Daesh terrorist group.
A UN team investigating Daesh terrorist group’s crimes in Iraq has found “clear and convincing evidence that the crimes against the Izadi people clearly constituted genocide,” the head of the inquiry said.
Iraqi warplanes and fighters from the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), also known as Hashd al-Sha'abi, embarked on sweeping operations to clear the western border province of Diyala of remnants of the Takfiri terrorist group of Daesh.
Iraq’s Kata’ib Hezbollah said the “the American-Saudi-Israeli alliance” is responsible for recent Daesh attacks, warning that the Iraqi resistance group and fellow fighters will target the main source of Takfiri violence.
An Iraqi politician appreciated the role played by top anti-terror commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani in the fight against the Daesh terrorist group, saying only Iran supported the Iraqi nation in its difficult times.
Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a tweet on the first anniversary of martyrdom of the anti-terror hero Lieutenant-General Qasem Soleimani said his assassination has only benefited Daesh terrorists.
