Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) have appointed Abu Fadak as a successor to its former Deputy Commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, who was assassinated by the U.S. earlier this year, the Iraqi News Agency (INA) reported on February 20.

Abu Fadak Abdulaziz al-Mohammadawi, known as al-Khal, is leading member of Kata’ib Hezbollah (KH). In the 80s he took part in the intelligence work of the Shia Badr Organization against the regime of Saddam Hussein.

Deputy Chairman of the PMU, Abu Ali al-Basri, told the INA that Commander-in-Chief of Iraqi Armed Forces, that Abu Fadak was chosen as the new Deputy Commander during a high-level meeting.

“We have been informed that the order for the appointment of Abu Fadak will be signed by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces [Prime Minister Mohammed Tawfiq Allawi] within the next two days,” al-Basri said.

According to Iraqi sources, Abu Fadk was heavily involved in the resistance of U.S. forces after the 2003 invasion. The Iraqi commander also had close ties with Maj. Gen. Qassim Soleimani, the former leader of Iran’s Quds Force.

A U.S. drone strike on Baghdad on January 3 killed both Soleimani and al-Muhandis. Back then, Washington justified the assassination by claiming the two leaders were plotting attacks against U.S. interests in the Middle East.

Under the command of Abu Fadak, the PMU will likely follow the same policies set by late al-Muhandis, especially the close cooperation with Iran.

    He certainly has the reputation for being the right man for the post.
    good fortune to him and his brothers in arms in US occupied Iraq.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      He is good choice and younger and more aggressive.The cowardly assassination of the diplomat soldier general Soleimani has really backfired big time for the Americunts. Now Iraq has a Hezbollah ally PM and getting much closer to both Iran and Russia. So much for the lardass dumbass Americunt murderous morons.

    the pmu should in a tit for tat target american morons of a higher order and take them out, just because they can and not because there is a bounty on their respective heads. and that naturally includes netanyahu and odious kushner and so on. can’t happen too soon and the quicker the jews are finished in palestine the better it is and will be.

    and remember that the jews in the disunited states of A and the jews of england and inparticular the jews of palestine fucked up jeremy corbyn’s chanse to win the election in england recently and they did so with intent to fuck up his chances of winning – that shan’t be forgotten and the jews will have to pay for that.

    • Shy Talk

      Corbyn and his party fu*ked up their chance of winning all by themselves by siding with the remainers, he thought the younger voters would turnout for him, they didn’t, they couldn’t be arsed

      • verner

        you’re totally deluded – labours and corbyn’s chances were ruined by an orchestrated campaign to fuck up corbyn’s chances, and it included jews from the disunited states of A, jews from the illegal settlement called israel and jews in england (which really should be viewed as high treason), talk about meddling. thus, it is imperative that the influence the jews wield is terminated as quickly as possible and a strong strong ant-zionist movement is started aiming to terminate the jews occupation of palestine (and incidentally end the influence the jews have in england and in france and everywhere – basically end the terror the jews are guilty of).

          Both yourself and Shy Talk are correct. All of the above was done to Corbyn and his campaign. It kinda reminds one of the days of Harold Wilson.

          Corbyn is a long time supporter of the Palestinian people and that alone will mark out for the usual slander and libel.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        The whole Jew media had ganged up on Corbyn and Labor, UK is a Jew controlled little island.

      • Peter Jennings

        Corbyn also pissed off his core by pandering to sexual deviant minorities. The Labour party is also suffering due to a massive toady blaaar hangover, made worse by his minions who are still affecting policy.
        Corbyn should listen to his brother a bit more.

  • Assad must stay

    he looks like a smart capable man and i wish him and the PMU the absolute best

    • Zionism = EVIL

      He is a battle tested hardliner and will defend Iraqi interests with vigor.

  • Peter Jennings

    Dear gun of washington, please meet foot, and fire at will.

    Whoever planned the assassinations of Soleimani and al-Muhandis may find their next job is planing a US leaving party The assassinations will certainly be good for recruitment against the infidel.
