Hashd al-Shaabi forces have discovered several 30-kg bombs and other light bombs used to kill people and blow up cars at ISIL terrorists’ underground hideouts in Diyali province, Sadiq al-Husseini told the Arabic-language al-Ma’aloumeh news website on Monday.
He added that investigations showed that the bombs have not been produced by the ISIL, which proves foreign support for them.
Al-Husseini also said that verifiable reports indicate foreign financial support for the ISIL terrorists as well.
In relevant remarks earlier this month, a senior commander of Hashd al-Shaabi warned that the ISIL terrorist group had been reinvigorated and activated again in a number of provinces in Iraq.
“The Americans and the ISIL terrorists are repeating the same scenario they played during the collapse of Mosul in 2014, in Babel, Salahuddin and Diyali provinces and they are attempting to distort security and stir instability in those regions,” Qasim al-Ma’amouri, the commander of Hashd al-Shaabi’s Division 26, was quoted by al-Ma’aloumeh as saying.
“We have intelligence showing that the terrorist group has resumed its activities in several Iraqi provinces, including Babel, with the US help,” he added.
Al-Ma’amouri said that the ISIL members have again infiltrated Jorf al-Nasr and Northern Babel.
