DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:00 A.M.) – The Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) are taking a heavy toll on the Islamic State after bringing their desert warfare expertise, commanded by Haider Al-Ameri, to deadly effect in western Nineveh.

Targeting an ISIS-held area south of Al-Ba’aj, the PMU were able to wrestle control over the village of Al-Khibra on Thursday morning. Later on, the Iraqi contingents also took control of the nearby Al-Sakaar housing complex.

Meanwhile, the PMU leadership announced it would start operations to secure the entire border with Syria; if succesful, this major military endeavour would cut the regional caliphate in half and significantly hamper its logistics and maneuverability.

In addition, PMU chief Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandes announced that their forces would handover the entire border region to Syrian and Iraqi border guards once retaken.

With the PMU offensive heading southwards en route to the ISIS stronghold of Al-Qaim, the PMU meanwhile denied it had crossed into Syria and said it was building trenches and barriers along the border to withhold ISIS counter-attacks.

PMU has been integrated with Iraqi army and Iraqi army teams with CJTFOIR AKA “US coalition”!

By your logic, Iraq is part of the 4+1 (Iran-Iraq-Russia-Syria+Hezbollah) intelligence effort, therefore USA awaits orders of Iran and Russia before acting. PMUs are highly frowned upon by the “coalition”, that didn’t want them around in Mosul. They’re counseled by Iran and Hezbollah and get military hardware from Russia (through Iraq or Hezbollah). Iraqi govt is under US talon but often tries and escapes US wills. They happily use Russian hardware, too. PMUs integration in the Army it’s a way to *protect* them from – er – mistakes of the – uhm – “mildsighted” US pilots, as coalition apparently has… Read more »
