Popular Mobilization Forces approaching the Saudi border

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — While there are unofficial reports of Saudi planes participating in Israeli raids targeting the Hachd al-Shaabi positions at Abu Kamal in Syria, the latter are advancing in the desert of al-Anbar towards the Saudi-Jordanian borders. Two of the deadliest raids on the Hachd positions in August were reportedly carried out by Israeli drones from the Jordanian skies.

The Hashd al-Shaabi (People’s Mobilization Units of Iraq) began five days ago the fifth stage of the operation called “Will to Defeat” which aims to liberate the regions of the province of al-Anbar, in the Western Iraq, the yoke of terrorist groups.

Al-Sumaria News reported that Iraqi forces in al-Anbar, commanded by Qassem Mosleh, had advanced 75 kilometers to the Saudi border and cleared dozens of villages.

The top Hashd commander said Iraqi fighters had struck a Daesh pickup in the Wadi al-Qazaf region of the Anbar desert.

During this operation, five suspects were arrested. “Hashd and army forces have already achieved many of their goals. They will announce the end of the operation when all their objectives are achieved,” he added.

In addition, al-Tabaqat camp, an important and strategic military position in al-Anbar, was released.

The Iraqi joint forces have also managed to recover the al-Walid airport and surrounding areas of Wadi al-Qazaf, while destroying many Daesh positions.
