BASHIQA, Kurdistan Region – A Peshmerga commander has said that 3 of their fighters have been arrested by the mainly-Shiite Hashd al-Shaabi in Bashiqa, northeast of Mosul on Monday. 

The commander of Safeen Command said that the incident happened in Pis Khrap area in Bashiqa.

"Hashd al-Shaabi forces who are 300 to 400 meters away from us arrested three Peshmerga fighters after they entered an old ISIS tunnel,” Major General Halgord Khidir told Rudaw.

“The three Peshmerga are currently held by the Hashd al-Shaabi forces who have decided to release them tomorrow,” the commander added. 

The Kurdish Peshmerga liberated the Yezidi town of Bashiqa, about 20 km northeast of Mosul, late last year as part of the Mosul offensive,backed by the US-led Global Coalition against ISIS.

Hashd alshaabi, the thugs and criminals who were brought by Maliki have turned Iraq to a lawless state. They kidnap, take bribes, kill and rob Iraqis on daily basis in Baghdad and all the areas they can reach, Iraqi police and army have no power or control over them.

without US air power, Iraqi forces and iranian forces would never have been able to defeat ISIS in Mousel. this is a fact that iraqi and iranians do not want to accept
