DAMASCUS, SYRIA (11:35 A.M.) – A large convoy of Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) has been noticed moving towards Iraqi-Saudi border.

Iraqi journalist, Haidar Sumeri, published a video footage of the convoy travelling through desert terrain:

This comes amid sharpening tensions between Saudi Arabia and Qatar as the latter is on the verge of partial diplomatic isolation.

According to Sumeri, Iraqi authorities have already built a Najaf – Karbala – Saudi border defense line, and current deployment of PMU is the next stage of Iraq’s security build-up near southern border.

It is also noteworthy that Iraqi government openly expressed support for Qatar in their conflict with Saudi Arabia, saying that “Qatar is being unfairly accused”.

Qatar being used as the main slush-fund by Qaeda and the Brotherhood, I’d consider putting Qatar bankrupt first. The House of Saoud being very elastic, they’re easier to drive with the good ole carrot+stick.

It’s ar-Rutbah the PMU need to be going to.
Once the PMU start approaching al-Qaïm, the Americans will build a “deconfliction zone” base at Akashat, just like al-Tanf.
They’ll argue it’s to stop ISIS getting the uranium!
