Iraq – Daesh Resurface or Repurposed

ISIS have resurfaced either in disguise or in small cells possibly acting as mercenaries for Iranian militias.

In recent times the rise of drone attacks have become a concern, particularly to US Forces (here)

“In April, a drone strike targeted a CIA hangar inside the airport complex in the northern city of Irbil, according to officials familiar with the matter. The drone’s flight was tracked to within 10 miles of the site, but its path was then lost as it moved into a civilian flight path, the coalition officials.

The video below is a familiar scenario from 2014 – 2015. The targets are either followed home or given a surprise visit. The attacks are performed by a minimum of attackers capable of exerting extreme violence.

Iraqi security forces on Wednesday arrested militia commander Qasim Muslih, the military said, in a move security sources said was linked to attacks on a base that hosts U.S. forces.

Muslih was arrested at dawn and is being questioned on anti-terrorism charges, a military statement said, without giving further details.

Two security sources told Reuters the militia chief was arrested in Baghdad for involvement in several attacks including recent assaults on Ain al-Asad air base, where U.S. and other international forces are housed.

Muslih is the Anbar province head of the Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF), a grouping of mostly Shi’ite militias backed by Iran, which the United States regards as the biggest threat to security in the Middle East.

Police-General Sigit “From the profiling of the person in question, that person was a suspect or a lone wolf with the ideology of radical ISIS,” Police-General Sigit told a news conference, adding that she had left a note for her parents bidding farewell.

The attempted attack was likely intended as revenge for a sweep of police arrests of suspected religious extremists in recent days.
