In a sad turn of things, Iran led militia is said to have deployed snipers to scatter off anti-government protests in Iraq, killing more than and leaving over 6,000 wounded.
The Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF) indulged in this act. PMF is a collection of mostly Shia militias (also known as Hashd al-Shaabi in Arabic), had allegedly stationed fighters to shoot those participating in mass protests.
Iraqi civilians were protesting against unchecked corruption, state of unemployment and poor public services that have shrouded their country.
The protests were against the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi.
This information was shared by two Iraqi security officials who spoke to a well-known media agency who confirmed that the leaders of Iran-aligned militias had acted on their own volition and decided to aid the Baghdad government in quashing mass protests.
They further confirmed that the group is ‘very close to the Iranians.’
The Iraqi PM Mahdi has been exhibiting genuine concern and intent to solve the obvious problems. But the fact that Mahdi that he is backed by various Iran-linked “armed groups and political factions” cannot be denied.
Senior commanders from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard are known to have traveled to Iraq in the early days of the protests to meet with intelligence and security officials, a diplomat told the news agency and continued to offer advice as the situation developed.
It is also coming to light that Iran has been instrumental in advising those seeking to quash the protests.
The young civilian population in Iraq is aware of Iran’s interference and influence. They clearly share that all the Shiite militias in Iraq are supported by Iran.
So, they implement Iran’s agendas in controlling the Iraqi climate— be it political, economic or social. They work with the parties in the parliament too.
The Iranian influence has penetrated the governance, taking the ‘real’ government away from the people and leaving it to the mercy of political factions who work to fulfill an Iranian agenda.
Iran would never want Iraq to become a self-sustained and balanced nation of the middle east, and it has its reasons for that.
