Hashd

Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) – commonly known as Hashd Shabi – said it has shot down an unidentified drone in eastern Iraq, nearly three weeks after the group came under aerial bombardment by Israeli fighter jets.

“The tactical group of Hashd Shaabi’s 26th brigade deployed in the operational center in Diyala in the district of Kanaan managed to shoot down a drone, which was attempting to attack the Iraqi army,” the statement published by PMF read.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hinted at his country’s involvement in the aerial attacks on ammunition depots in Iraq belonging to the Iran-backed Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) composed of mostly Shia Muslim groups.

An unnamed senior US officials were quoted by the New York Times as saying that Israel conducted “several strikes in recent days” in Iraq, including the July 19 attack north of Baghdad which targeted a base allegedly used by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps “to transfer weapons to Syria”

In response, the Hashd announced it is now forming its own ‘Air Force’ in order to respond to hostile air strikes.

Established in 2014 with the aim to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS,ISIL, IS), the Hashd al-Shaabi was formally incorporated into the Iraqi army in 2017.

If the drone was shot down, there is a wreckage, if there is a wreckage, you can identify where it came from, who built it, to which client it was sold. Who may have sent it which Hashd al-Shaabi doesn’t wants to name? +++ “Established in 2014 with the aim to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS,ISIL, IS), the Hashd al-Shaabi was formally incorporated into the Iraqi army in 2017.” => In fact, only the third of Hashd al-Shaabi joined. The 2 thirds refuse to pledge allegiance to Iraq an take orders only from Tehran and Iraq’s… Read more »

You don’t have the bälls to attack them, that’s why you use proxies and terrorists. To be frank, the best thing that could happen would be the Wahabis and the Ayatoilets totally annihilating each other. For the Wahabis, they’re bearable as long as the cow has milk. +++ “Marg bar Yahoodi” => It’d be stupid! Science and arts can’t do without them while the world can obviously do without their haters. Look at the 57 Islamic-majority countries : none has a single university classed in world’s top 500. Small Israel has at least 4. They’re relevant, you aren’t, that’s why… Read more »

Now are you able to counter argument anything or are you as irrelevant as the jomhuri Eslami?
