Weapons sent to IS from Pop­u­lar Mo­bi­lized Units

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Sources from in­side the 7th Brigade of the Iraqi Army re­ported last week that a num­ber of al- Hashd al-Shaabi (Pop­u­lar Mo­bi­lized Units) mem­bers have been ar­rested south of Tikrit be­cause they have been send­ing arms to the Is­lamic State Ter­ror­ist Or­ga­ni­za­tion.

A com­man­der of the 7th Brigade told the media or­ga­ni­za­tions that a group of their sol­diers ar­rested a num­ber of armed men on July 8, 2015, who were mem­bers of the Hashd al-Shaabi forces.

Ac­cord­ing to the com­man­der, these armed men were find­ing weapons and bombs hid­den by IS from the newly lib­er­ated ar­eas in Sala­haddin Province and they were send­ing these weapons back to the IS.

The group was ar­rested in the town of Yas­rib, 80 km south of Tikrit.

The group re­port­edly had an au­tho­riza­tion let­ter to en­ter all the lib­er­ated ar­eas, which is ex­pected to be faked.

“The mem­bers of the group have ad­mit­ted to have con­nec­tions with the IS, and they have been put on trial,” said the com­man­der.
