Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), also known as Hashd al-Sha’abi forces, in collaboration with the Iraqi army, have launched a successful counter-terrorism operation in the al-Baghdadi desert region of Anbar province.
Hashd Al-Sha’abi forces also managed to identify an ISIL-held underground base in the al-Tarmiyah area of northern Baghdad, which is used by ISIL for training its forces.
Hashd Al-Sha’abi officials said the operation had a positive and important impact on regional security.
