Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (Hashd al-Sha’abi) have been placed on high alert along the strategic road connecting Al-Qa’im to Albukamal, as Islamic State terrorists have attempted to cross into western Iraq, the Arabic-language Al-Ma’aloumeh News reported on Tuesday.

“The forces from the 17th and 18th divisions of Iraq’s Hashd al-Sha’abi have been stationed along the Akashat-Qa’im International Highway near the al-Ratabeh Intersection in the western part of the Al-Anbar Governorate,” Al-Ma’aloumeh quoted the commander of Hashd al-Sha’abi’s 17th Division Jassim Al-Nouri as saying on Tuesday.

Al-Nouri noted that Hashd al-Sha’abi forces are in control of the security along the international highway, pointing out that his forces are prepared to confront the ISIS terrorists from Syria.

He also said that Hashd al-Sha’abi has maintains security over 70 kilometers of the international road upto Akashat.

Head of the Badr Organization’s Office in Al-Anbar Qusai al-Anbari was quoted by the Al-Ma’aloumeh website as saying that the U.S. forces deployed at the Ayn Al-Assad and Al-Habaniyeh bases in the desert of Al-Anbar are using new methods to attack the Iraqi security forces.

He accused the U.S. forces of disguising ISIS terrorists as shepherds and tribesmen to launch attacks against the Iraqi security forces, Hashd al-Shaabi (Iraqi popular forces) and civilians in Al-Anbar.
