PMU Senior Official Accuses US of Secret Interaction with Daesh
Local Editor

Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units [PMU] announced it is in possession of evidence showing that US aircraft made flights to Daesh-controlled territory, possibly indicating secret interactions between the US and the terrorist group.

Mohandess

In a press conference in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, PMU's second-in-command Abu Mahdi al-Mohandess said that there was evidence to prove American aircraft had made landings on Daesh-occupied territory in Iraq.

The senior official, however, did not provide more details but seemed to suggest that the US was in some form of cooperation with Daesh on Iraqi territory.

The US and its allies have been conducting a campaign of airstrikes against what they say are Daesh positions inside Iraq and Syria since 2014. However, the air raids have not fulfilled their declared aim of dislodging Daesh.

Elsewhere in his comments, al-Mohandess touched on the situation in the northern Iraqi city of Tal Afar, saying it is encircled by the Iraqi forces, who he said were now awaiting Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi's order to launch the liberation operation.

Last month, Iraqi forces fully recaptured the city of Mosul, Daesh's de facto capital in the Arab country.

The Iraqi commander further provided information on the PMU's role in counter-terrorism operations in neighboring Syria, explaining that the group had not advanced into Syrian territory but had rather targeted Daesh positions there with artillery and missile attacks.
