ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – A Hashd al-Shaabi commander was killed in clashes with ISIS to the east of Mosul on Wednesday, Kurdish officials confirmed.

“Today, Wednesday, in Zhour to the east of Mosul, clashes between Daesh [ISIS] fighters and Hashd al-Shaabi erupted,” Saaid Mamuziny, media officer of Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP)’s Mosul office, told Rudaw.

“Abdullah Shinghab Yassin al-Basty, commander of the second regiment of Hashd al-Shaabi’s fifth brigade, was killed and two other Hashd al-Shaabi fighters were injured,” Mamuziny added.

A number of Hashd fighters were killed and several others wounded late on Tuesday night while preventing a suicide bomber from entering the village of Asdira in Shirqat, Saladin province, according to Hashd al-Shaabi’s official media.

ISIS fighters also staged an attack on the Iraqi Army in Tuz Khurmatu on Tuesday, security forces said in a statement.

Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy head of Hashd al-Shaabi, has ordered the paramilitias to withdraw from Iraq’s “liberated” cities, particularly those in Sunni-majority areas of the country, following demands by Sunni politicians.

The Iraqi government announced the defeat of ISIS in December 2017. However, the group’s remnants and sleeper cells have regrouped in several areas of Iraq. Ambushes, assassinations, and kidnappings are becoming more common. 

Mosul, Iraq's second biggest city, was liberated from ISIS control in July 2017.

Those thugs and criminals of Hashd think they can defeat Isis without the help of Kurds and US troops, see what happens when they are on their own, they get killed killed like chickens.
